    One thought on “The Wit and Wisdom of Lee Kuan Yew”

    1. A fascinating book of quotes. It didn't feel so much like a book - more like sitting down and having a chat with the man himself. A good read :)

    6. Love to read about his opinions on issues of the country and how far-sighted he is back in those days. Reading those quotes made me reflect on certain life decisions I make as well.

    7. Finished the Chinese version of this book, around the time of the 1st anniversary after the passing of the old man.Great leader. Smart man.
