The material was poorly written, with fictional material to fill the gap and catch the eyeball of the reader. The book did have a good storytelling of the life of the Singapore millionaire, but some fact were either wrong, or without any referencing. Such as the suicide of Aw Cheng Chye, it must have insider source to prove it was not a stroke, that the newspaper at that time widespread reported, or the first time Sally Aw to go to work in Sing Tao, how she feel, either the author interviewed Sally, or according to a secondly source, or just fictional material.

It is not bad if you compare it to "The Aviator" the film, but since the author was a professor of journalism and communication, it looks like a very typical example of tabloid journalism.
