Gabriel Chen works at an investment firm. This is his second book. He is the co author of Sustaining Stability, Serving Singapore, commissioned by the Monetary Authority of Singapore for its 40th anniversary.

Gabriel wanted people young and old to benefit from the life lessons of accomplished Asian personalities centred around the advice they would give their younger selves. He searched and could not find such a book – so he wrote it.
Reflecting on the life lessons recorded in its pages, he says: “they hold me in their own way and I continue to think about them and apply them.”
