Free eBook : Lee Kuan Yew - The Man And His Ideas

While we are still in the mourning week of the passing of modern Singapore's founding father. Mr Lee Kuan Yew, it is heartwarming to see constant streams of social media sharing on how hundreds of thousands of citizens and foreigners alike are queueing up for n hours just to pay their last tribute to the giant.  

Personally, I choose to pay my tribute at the temporary station at Seng Kang Community Centre and honored to meet the Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Teo Chee Hean while he is shaking hands with practically everyone in the line. Different location, same RESPECT! 

With the extensive mainstream media coverage of the achievements of Mr Lee and what he has done for us throughout his 31 years of political life, it is natural that we would want to know more about him and where he was coming from when he made certain controversial decisions/policies. 

As a public service to commemorate the life and work of Mr Lee, The Straits Times has packed an excerpts of Lee Kuan Yew: The Man And His Ideas (first launched in Oct 1997) together with some recent photos and multi-media (featuring Mr Lee in action) into a beautifully memorable eBook. 

The FREE eBook can be downloaded from the App Stores and Google Play. Here is how to do it:

1. Go to Apple App store on your iPad or Google Play Store on your Android tablet or smartphone 
2. Type “The Straits Times Star” to search for The Straits Times Star E-books app 
3. Download it onto your iPad or Android device 
4. Go to "browsing" 
5. You will find Lee Kuan Yew: The Man And His Ideas inside

I just downloaded the eBook into my iPad and started reading it. Here is one of the many inspiring quotes from Mr Lee that I would like to share :
"I would say that I'm very determined when I set out to do something. If I decided that something is worth doing, I'll put my heard and soul into it. I'll give everything I've got to make it succeed!"
Rest In Peace, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
