True faces of Chin Peng memoirs' co-authors

According to one estimate in Singapore, since its first release, Alias Chin Peng: My Side of History has sold at least 35,000 copies.

I met both Ian and Norma several times in Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to understand from them more in-depth about various aspects of the grand narrative in their magnum opus that has helped to reconstruct a critical dimension of the modern history of my land and my people. Well, I have found no horns on their heads ...

To the authors of Chin Peng's memoir. Good job, well done. It will surely be a reference historians will fall back on.
