When Dr. Cai Mingjie, a lifelong scientist and university professor, lost his job at a leading research institute in Singapore, his world collapsed around him. Despite having published numerous papers and a Stanford PhD, he could not find a suitable job.
Disheartened by the global financial crisis, he became a taxi driver, the Singaporean job of last resort. While driving a cab he jotted down notes about his experiences and posted them on his blog, quickly becoming an internet celebrity with close to one million hits so far. This book includes edited posts from his blog plus exclusive new material.
Experience the real Singapore and join Dr. Cai as he recounts true stories about naïve prostitutes and lecherous johns, abusive customers and kind strangers, violent drivers and heart-wrenching encounters.
