The Story of Singapore
Singapore is a miracle which is the brainchild of two men: Raffles and Lee Kuan Yew. Raffles laid the foundation and more than a hundred years later, Lee Kuan Yew picked up the reins and made it into the modern wonder that we all know and admire.
This book is both a journey of how Singapore progressed from a third world port to a first world country as well as a semi-autobiographical tale of the man who made it all possible. LKY’s determination to make Singapore great shines through each page.
I picked up this book right after LKY passed away. I should have read it years ago; before I went to Singapore and got to know the people of Singapore. Reading it afterwards, this book gave me the clarity to understand my experiences, to truly appreciate them.
