One of the largest bookstore chains in Taiwan, Eslite was founded in 1989 by Robert Wu and it became the first company to set up a 24-hour bookstore in Taiwan, attracting many night-time readers. When Eslite first opened, it placed emphasis on books in the arts and humanities. Nowadays the company has expanded its range of titles and has opened multiple stores in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
The decision to operate a bookshop devoted to Humanities and the Arts was neither an act of impulse nor a brave sense of mission. Rather, it was a commitment that sprang from a heartfelt, personal life experience. After years of being engaged in fiercely competitive business activity, a positive, optimistic, eager and innocent state of mind had become one of cautious and somewhat anxious cynicism. I realized on continued reflection, that I had developed a sense of spiritual lacking and imbalance. Thus, a search to identify a fuller and more complete life began. - Robert Wu
