Welcome to the land of rapid demolition/construction, extreme shopping, scripted lives, sanitized fun and sheltered walkways.

Nicknamed "The Little Red Dot" by some Indonesian president, tiny Singapore is one of the richest countries in the world with the highest paid leaders in the world and close to 100% home ownership. Yet, beneath the veneer of prosperity, is a cold and calculative society inhabited by a highly stressed and frustrated people who somehow want to be pampered and spoon-fed all their lives. 


What does Singapore look like beneath the surface? Why are people so well-off yet unhappy? Or are they really that well-off? Come with us and take an insider's view of this enigmatic, atypical Southeast Asian country.

Red Dot Rants is a collection of cynical yet funny and lighthearted essays and social commentaries by Singaporean writer/blogger Chan Joon Yee. A baby boomer who grew up in Singapore during the 60s and 70s, Chan is as comfortable touching on current affairs as he is with nostalgic recollections. Be touched and tickled by these nice and nasty essays.

Instant New York Times bestseller

“Howard Zinn on acid or some bullsh*t like that.” —Tim Heidecker

The creators of the cult-hit podcast Chapo Trap House deliver a manifesto for everyone who feels orphaned and alienated—politically, culturally, and economically—by the bloodless Wall Street centrism of the Democrats and the lizard-brained atavism of the right: there is a better way, the Chapo Way.

In a manifesto that renders all previous attempts at political satire obsolete, The Chapo Guide to Revolution shows you that you don’t have to side with either the pear-shaped vampires of the right or the craven, lanyard-wearing wonks of contemporary liberalism. These self-described “assholes from the internet” offer a fully ironic ideology for all who feel politically hopeless and prefer broadsides and tirades to reasoned debate.

Learn the “secret” history of the world, politics, media, and everything in-between that THEY don’t want you to know and chart a course from our wretched present to a utopian future where one can post in the morning, game in the afternoon, and podcast after dinner without ever becoming a poster, gamer, or podcaster.

The Chapo Guide to Revolution features illustrated taxonomies of contemporary liberal and conservative characters, biographies of important thought leaders, “never before seen” drafts of Aaron Sorkin’s Newsroom manga, and the ten new laws that govern Chapo Year Zero (everyone gets a dog, billionaires are turned into Soylent, and logic is outlawed). If you’re a fan of sacred cows, prisoners being taken, and holds being barred, then this book is NOT for you. However, if you feel disenfranchised from the political and cultural nightmare we’re in, then Chapo, let’s go...
