Lee Kuan Yew - father of Singapore, is a lesson in prudent leadership. He led the emergence of a nation-state by substituting resources with discipline, ingenuity and superior intelligence. He installed first world infrastructure for Singapore - a country with no natural resources and turned it to a global trade centre and a beacon of posterity. 

Lee took Singapore, by far the smallest country in Southeast Asia, from third word (poverty) to first world (posterity). He says the book “is an account of the problems my colleagues and I faced, and how we set about solving them.” If you are in search of a book on the philosophy of hardwork, planning and improvisation, it is this book.
