March 2024

We thought to ask a handful of professionals in Singapore's health space to share their current reading, as well as recommendations from the past. I thank everyone who has shared their selections with us.


Some of the books being read are newly released, others not. In six months time perhaps they will be remembered, perhaps not. Other books in the list are those that have remained in the readers' headspace, influencing them over time.


Scroll down and discover. Click on the image and you will be directed to the relevant Amazon.com page. Make your own suggestions at bottom of page and perhaps we can enjoy and share them in the future!


Stay Healthy,


Alastair
