If I Were King of Singapore

Publisher: Landmark Books
  • Description
  • About the Author
  • This is a collection of Adrian Tan’s essays on what he cared for and felt was important to raise about Singapore, Singaporeans and the world around him.

    Like The Teenage Textbook and The Teenage Workbook, If I Were King of Singapore is quintessentially Adrian, hallmarked by his wit and wisdom, matured by decades of legal practice and observing society.

    Here, he shares candidly about his life, the impact of social media, necessary work skills, law and society, including the repeal of Section 377A of the Penal Code.

    He writes passionately, connecting buildings with heritage and identity. He makes a case for treating migrant workers with respect and decency. He brings to mind what we experienced during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and how the lessons we learned are still relevant today.

    He speaks again to Singapore and all who are interested in Singapore with honesty, openness, and great insight.

  • Adrian Tan wrote The Teenage Textbook and The Teenage Workbook which topped bestseller lists, won awards, and were adapted for stage and screen. He also wrote Dear Adam, Help! under the pseudonym Adam Wong. His writing has been featured in various media, including the BBC World Service, for his story “The Animals”. He conceptualised The Pupil, an award-winning TV series set in a Singapore law firm, and Homecoming, a Jack Neo film about Chinese New Year. He was an intellectual property lawyer and the 27th President of the Law Society of Singapore.
