Free sample

In 26 conversations with 26 naysayers, this book is aimed at reflecting the spectrum of naysaying in Singapore's civil society. Each person is interviewed against the backdrop of his or her bookcase, putting front and centre a life of ideas and imagination.

This is a book club for curious minds.

"We need more naysayers... We need to create new formulas, which you can't until you attack and challenge every sacred cow."
— Kishore Mahbubani, former dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy
