"This compact paperback of 154 pages offers essential information about almost everything important to business people on their way to the ‘Lion City’. The book is written in an accessible and low-key style...very easy to read. Singapore is presented in a brief manner, providing the reader with a balance of information on living and working in the 'Lion City'. The author gives the reader useful guidance and tips, but mostly a generous and overly positive overview of the whole. The book is useful for the 'business person on the run'."
