Tall Order: The Goh Chok Tong Story
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.
A riveting book of masterful storytelling by our partner Peh Shing Huei, offering rare insights into one of Singapore's biggest and most important political and economic personalities.
Volume 1, launched in 2018, was an instant bestseller, reaching No 1 in Singapore. The book is also among the most popular in the Singapore public libraries in 2019, with a waiting list 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!
