New book in My Library - From Third World to First: The Singapore Story - 1965-2000 by Lee Kuan Yew

My library has been replenished with another one great book. It is “From Third World to First: The Singapore Story - 1965-2000” by Lee Kuan Yew.,204,203,200_.jpg

Lee Kuan Yew is definitely an extraordinary person, outstanding leader and true patriot of Singapore. I was completely absorbed in this great story and great book.

This book came to my hands as a part of initiative of discovering eastern culture and did its job pretty well.

If one would ask me to describe this book in a single sentence, I would say next:

It contains description of hundreds of effective and elegant key decisions that were made by a great leader and true patriot in a quite toxic environment for forming highly-valuable modern 1st World state.

Another good thing about this book is that it contains a quite full description of Lee Kuan Yew’s analysis that was done before and after making his elegant decisions. This dive into his thoughts provides quite transparent vision on eastern way of thinking and what he calls “Confucian values”.

It also could be a nice guide on history of all countries of South Eastern region during 1950 - 2000 years. Lee Kuan Yew had to deal a lot with Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Philippines, India, Japan, Australia and other countries of the region. Moreover, it’s quite interesting to read about how international relations with United States, Europe and Soviet Union of that epoch.

History, politics, international relations, management, business, investment, culture, just human relations, no matter what, I’m sure that everybody would get something personally interesting from this book.

I do recommend “From Third World to First: The Singapore Story - 1965-2000” by Lee Kuan Yew to you, Friends.

You’ll definitely enjoy it.
