About This Book

Asking Why is a collection of eclectic speeches and writings by prominent entrepreneur Ho Kwon Ping during his life so far, from schooldays through to a career in journalism and as a public intellectual, over a period of over 40 years. Curated into clusters with their own prefaces to provide context to the pieces, plus a separate chapter relating the chronology of his life so far, Asking Why is Ho's take on various issues around him, to which he asked why frequently - and which were often without clear answers. Ho Kwon Ping is the founder chairman of both Banyan Tree Holdings and Singapore Management University. Though both institutions are quite established in their own fields, his early life was a lot less respectable, involving being kicked out of university and a stint as a political detainee. Trained in development economics, employed as a journalist, and then becoming an accidental entrepreneur and amateur educator, Ho in the process has commented on many issues through speeches and published articles.
