Emeritus Minister Goh Chok Tong’s authorised biography landed in a display featuring the top 10 ’s books at a bookstore. The former Prime Minister shared the photo of his biography occupying the 8th spot in the display, on his own .

ESM Goh wrote on media last Thursday that someone sent him a photo of the display that appears to be at a Popular Bookstore outlet. Briefly asking whether the placement of his book in the display could be a prank, the politician commented that it does not matter since the book is selling well:

“Someone sent me this pic from a local bookshop. Truth, fiction, prank? Whatever, Tall Order is selling well but not a favourite of children surely.”

This is not the first time that the biography, entitled ‘Tall Order: The Goh Chok Tong Story,’ has been placed in a section in a bookstore where it does not belong.

In October last year, socio- commentator Mr Brown spotted copies of ESM Goh’s book at the Fiction shelf of a Popular Bookstore outlet. Sharing a picture of the shelf that bears several copies of the biography, Mr Brown tweeted:

“Someone shelved Lao Goh’s book under fiction. I wonder if the bookseller knows something we don’t.”

Sharing a screenshot of Mr Brown’s tweet on Facebook, ESM Goh commented, “Book shop knows that fiction sells better than memoirs.”
