Authorised biographies of former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong

The client:

Tall Order: The Goh Chok Tong Story
Standing Tall: The Goh Chok Tong Years

The brief:

Documenting the extraordinary life story and career of Singapore's second Prime Minister. Two volumes to detail his rise from obscurity to political dominance, his policy successes and unexpected setbacks in a career spanning almost half a century.

The work:

Two books containing masterful storytelling by our partner Peh Shing Huei, offering rare insights into one of Singapore's biggest and most important political and economic personalities.

Both volumes were instant bestsellers, reaching No 1 in Singapore. They were also among the most popular in the Singapore public libraries, with waiting lists that stretched to nearly a year long. It won the Popular Readers’ Choice Awards and was shortlisted for the Singapore Book Awards, and has since been translated into simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese and Burmese languages. We certainly know a thing or two about pulling off tall orders, and standing tall!
