In his introduction to this book, Professor Michael Wilding of the University of Sydney describes Yeo's poems as "personal poems" that reflect "an observed reality". At the same time, the work records sympathetically "the development of Singapore". It is impossible to read Yeo's poems without thinking about the social, political and cultural backdrop that form the context of his work. Ilsa Sharp put it succinctly when she wrote in The Business Times, "Robert Yeo has an uncommon knack for summing up the 'Singapore situation'."
