About This Book

The King's Chinese is an important book that fills in much of the tapestry and colour of early history of family and business in Penang, Malaya and Indonesia. Daryl Yeap writes with a keen eye for detail to weave the rise of a penniless immigrant barber who rose through sheer wits and ability to become one of the most successful tycoons in Asia. The stories of the tumultuous age of boom, bust, war and independence are brought alive through the intertwined careers of Yeap Chor Ee and his Javanese business partner and in-law Oei Tiong Ham.
