After almost three years in hardback, the paperback edition of Singapore: A Biography is out. I haven't had the chance to take a nice picture of the paperback yet --- ergo the old picture of the hardback above --- but I can tell you that it's the same book size, same cover and pictures, and same rollicking tale of how there's more than meets the eye when it comes to Singapore history.
What's changed: the publisher added some maps and fixed the typos. Oh, and it's definitely lighter, although I haven't got an exact weight. (The hardback was 1.4 kg. I know because I once mailed a copy overseas and had to slap a heckuva lot of postage on it.)
I don't know what the retail price for the paperback will be, but look out for it at all the usual bookstores in Singapore (and soon, overseas).
PS: Ebook coming soon. Stay tuned!
