Asking Why is a collection of eclectic speeches and writings by prominent entrepreneur Ho Kwon Ping during his life so far, from schooldays through to a career in journalism and as a public intellectual, over a period of over 40 years. Included are speeches to various audiences and articles commissioned by The Straits Times for its op-ed pages, as well as excerpts from his lecture series as the inaugural Institute of Policy Studies' S. R. Nathan Fellow for the Study of Singapore. Curated into clusters with their own prefaces to provide context to the pieces, plus a separate chapter relating the chronology of his life so far, Asking Why is Ho's take on various issues around him, to which he asked why frequently - and which were often without clear answers.
