Notes and Reviews of Books I’ve Read
Reading has always been one of my passions. However, I recently came to realise I was not retaining what I had read many months later. After reading about commonplace books and of other writers who publicise their book notes, I decided I would do the same too.
This is my “commonplace” of books I’ve read with detailed summaries and notes. They’re meant to remind me about the high-level concepts, and are not intended to recreate the whole book.
You can use them to decide if they’re something you want to read.
You should read this on the Kindle. It’s a massive tome of a book to get through, but enlightening to get into the head of the man who shaped Singapore into what it is today. You learn his reasonings behind certain policies, and the history of how the different parts of Singapore came about. It made me appreciative of what Singapore has gone through to be where it is now.
How strongly I would recommend it: 10/10
