The leaders of most countries celebrate when they gain their independence. When Singapore became independent, Prime Minister Lew Kuan Yew cried. He was worried that his small island nation would not survive. His worries proved to be unfounded. Today the country is one of the wealthiest in the world, with the highest rate of millionaires anywhere on the globe. By investing in education and making English its national language, this tiny island nation managed to overcome enormous challenges. Its story is one that can teach many. Book jacket.
