Still Making Sense of Life – S$25.00

About the book

This is a selection of writings from Singapore Management University (SMU) business school students who share their thoughts on work, luck, inequality, gender, free will and spirituality and how this is relevant to business, happiness and the meaning of life.

Their experiences with life in general and SMU in particular, will resonate with undergraduates all over the world if only because they are in the same age group facing similar challenges of meeting family and societal expectations, and their responses to it. Confident and confiding, ambitious and ambivalent, appreciative yet anxious – a whole gamut of individual voices is captured here, giving general readers an idea of the youth who will be the inhabitants of a new world that’s full of opportunities as well as uncertainties.

Reviews

“Growing up and being educated is a process of discovering yourself and then discovering everything else. Sadly, many people only get a little way in the first of these and hardly any way at all in the second. Those involved in parenting, teaching, mentoring, coaching, training and employing others have a heavy responsibility to help their proteges past the first stage of growing up and entering positively into the second.

Pang Eng Fong, as this collection of essays shows, is a master at the transition from stage 1 to stage 2 – and one who epitomises the rule that we must never stop learning. The personal discoveries sought and found by the writers of this collection are humbling, moving and exciting. Those who read the essays will see between the lines, too. For that is where the fruit of life is stored and where the future of humankind is nurtured.”

John Bittleston, Founder Mentor Terrific Mentors International

“This collection of essays is definitely worthwhile reading. Raw yet beautifully written (and edited), there are stories that puzzled, touched and gripped me. From stories on unusual student exchanges to parents’ divorce, depression and even abuse, I learned about resilience and perseverance in overcoming hardships. Younger readers will find the essays relatable and inspirational; older readers will learn life lessons from the young writers.”

Irene Y.H. Ng, Associate Professor, Department of Social Work, NUS

We are always trying to make sense of our lives, making sense of the world around us, deciding what is important, where are our priorities, getting an education. We com­municate, ask questions, seek knowledge, and get wiser, before getting a handle on making some sense of our identity. And then, the world changes and the process starts all over again. Making sense is an on-going process.

This compilation of essays gives us insights into the captivating minds of today’s undergraduates. They capture the need for imagination to move beyond the bounds of reality.

Dr Yeo Kang Shua, Singapore University of Technology and Design
