About the Book

In Leap, Singaporean Yap Kwong Weng shares the story of how he escaped death to create a future of his own. He takes us on a journey from his childhood of ‘spider-catching’, to facing the rigours of US Navy SEAL training and trekking 100km across the Taklamakan Desert in China, and finally to the present reality of doing business in Myanmar. Whether recalling ‘Dignity moments’ with children in Cambodia or introducing us to his life philosophy that enables him to survive and thrive during tough times, Leap presents a refreshing account of one man’s search for purpose in an uncertain world.

What motivates him in challenging circumstances and lonely times? What does it mean to be a Singaporean and a world citizen today? Discover how he triumphed over obstacles and disappointments in this riveting autobiography.

“Clear, insightful and engaging. Yap gave it his all and held Singapore’s flag up high.”
—Kaj Larsen, Former US Navy Seal & CNN Correspondent
