This book is so so so brilliant - Only God knows why I hadn't read it earlier. Have even ordered copies for friends! An excellent book.

This is perhaps the most underrated leader and the most successful politician of the 20th century. His is a captivating journey that took Singapore from the pits of poverty and dependence on others to the 7th wealthiest nation in the world. It was worth every penny and is a compulsory read for any business leader or aspiring politician.

a great book.. I haven't finished reading it yet.. and so far, it shows the history of a visionary leader who dug his people out from poverty and providing them with a descent life.
He was not saint, but compared to many despots in the 3rd world, he's a hero to many.

The blueprint on how to transform your country from third world to first world in a generation, and without a drop of crude oil in sight.

I read with great interest the book written by Mr. Lee. The position of Singapore is akin to Israel but through his tact and diplomatic skills he not only avoids serious conflicts with his Muslim neighbours but manages to make Singapore the envy of South East Asia. Looking at the position of Middle East at the moment, I only wish the people of Israel has the good fortune of having a leader like Lee Kuan Yew. A must read for anybody interested in politics

First class read. The book confirms what I thought many years ago. The UK at that time should have outsourced the Government to Lee Kuan Yew and his cabinet.
