"The unexamined life is not worth living,” declared Socrates. In this collective journal, The Chronicler, Koh Chye Hock opens the window to his mind and distils for the reader what he believes constitutes a purposeful, meaningful life, based on his 35 years of observing his own life as well as those of others. Succinct, perspicuous and provocative, the rich array of aphorisms—on life’s valleys, plains and highlands—will have you thinking about, contemplating and envisioning your own life, and what it could potentially be. The reader will also be captivated by the life of Chye, who grew up an orphan in the quiet town of Ipoh in Malaysia to become a successful corporate lawyer in a multinational firm. Live an examined life. The Chronicler will unquestionably evoke your innermost voice, one that yearns for the profoundest human essence.
