Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong is one of Malaysia's most interesting entrepreneurs. His development of Genting Highlands into a world-class resort has been well-publicised; this text, however, offers readers a first-time insight into his life. Starting with nothing, turning challenges into opportunities, taking risks, and emerging perseverent, Lim Goh Tong transformed the Genting Highlands into the impressive resort conglomerate it is today. Typically modest, Tan Sri Lim gives an account that is refreshingly original, wryly humorous and moving in its poignancy.
