Robert Kuok: A Memoir
Written by Andrew Tanzer
Published: December 2017
Robert Kuok is one of the most highly respected businessman in Asia. But this legendary Overseas Chinese entrepreneur, commodities trader, hotelier and property mogul has maintained a low profile and seldom shed light in public on his business empire or personal life. That is, until now.
In these memoirs, the 94 year-old Kuok tells the remarkable story of how, starting in British Colonial Malaya, he built a multi-industry, multinational business group. In reflecting back on 75 years of conducting business, he offers management insights, discusses strategies and lessons learned, and relates his principles, philosophy and moral code.
Kuok has lived through fascinating and often tumultuous times in Asia -- from British colonialism to Japanese military occupation to post-colonial Southeast Asia and the dramatic rise of Asian countries, including more recently, China. From his front-row seat as an active participant, this keen, multi-cultural observer tells nearly a century of Asian history through his life and times. Reader interested in business, management, history, politics, culture and sociology will all enjoy Robert Kuok's unique and remarkable story.
