Christopher, South Africa. 12 August 2017

An excellent read! Inspirational! Gives you a reality check! Can be read multiple times.

Obakeng, South Africa. 28 November 2016

This is such an excellent book. Not what one expected. Nothing about his stardom, comedy is mentioned in passing just to put things in perspective. Nothing about celebrities, fame and America. Nothing about the Daily Show and John Stewart and Hollywood. It's not "Look at me" kind of book. It's a "This is me, this is you" kind of book. It's a life story intertwined with small history lessons and common realities all too familiar to a South African society. It quietly puts a mirror in front of you and lets you reflect your own life through his. Told with that Trevor humour that we love. Excellent read!

Mark, South Africa. 24 November 2016

This is a good book

Debi, South Africa. 24 January 2017

Delivery was very quick and I am enjoying this book. All to the point where yu hope it doesn't come to an end.

Archie Makuwa, South Africa. 25 December 2016

A week written work a balanced level of humour... great reading.

Sohana, South Africa. 24 November 2016

Absolutely loved the book. Trevor Noah's sense of humour and story telling is brilliant. Beautifully written...

Debbie, South Africa. 2 January 2017

A most enjoyable and inspirational read for young South Africans living in difficult circumstances and poverty.

Ratisha, South Africa. 19 December 2016

I didn't enjoy the book as much as I thought I would. It was mildly entertaining.

Hloni, South Africa. 10 December 2016

Beautiful read, laughed and cried . worth buying

Sandulela, South Africa. 15 December 2016

Such an awesome book.. Trevor has a unique story to tell and everyone should read this

Marion, South Africa. 3 March 2017

Wardieya, South Africa. 23 January 2017

I love Trevor Noah's work!

Candice, South Africa. 17 January 2017


Aaron, South Africa. 19 November 2016

Definitely worth buying! Trevor will keep you on the edge of your seat with his all his stories.

Caitlyn, South Africa. 8 March 2017

Excellent book!

Angelique, South Africa. 12 January 2017

What an absolutely awesome read! Not only is it funny (in true Trevor Noah style), but it's enlightening in terms of how he grew up and what basically molded him into who he is and it's also educational with little snippets about how things were in SA during apartheid.

A definite must read!!!

Precious, South Africa. 24 November 2016

I cried and Laughed. Its beautiful to read someones story who not only shares his pain but how he never forgot to find humour in it.

Ian, South Africa. 16 December 2016

Probably the most readable and insightful look into overcoming a tough life, apartheid and difficulties after apartheid. Light hearted style shows up difficulties in a very poignant way. Pity about the swearing.

Farida, South Africa. 19 December 2016

This was an excellent read. I had to finish the book in a day as it kept my attention.

Morne, South Africa. 19 December 2016

Great book. Open honest and told in an open manner with a great sense of humour!

Frieda, South Africa. 10 March 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed the insight into Trevor's life and especially what I've learnt about his culture in a country where we were kept separate. Whilst I was not kept from people of colour we never got to really know each other and what each went through.

Ramasoaile Godfrey, South Africa. 16 January 2017

Great Book

Sandra, South Africa. 25 November 2016

My Christmas present of choice for those difficult people - and bought myself a copy. Must read for every South African!

Tami, South Africa. 28 November 2016

Brilliant and much food for thought.

Ken, South Africa. 8 December 2016

He is a good solid real lad !!

Faith, South Africa. 5 December 2016

Great interesting book that allowed me to also view my life with a sense of humour

Kate, South Africa. 4 January 2017

Very interesting read, I couldn't put it is however written for his American audience rather than his South African following.
I would recommend it, very honest and sincere...

Broderick, South Africa. 3 May 2017

I am half way through, but its awesome.!

Chrisel, South Africa. 3 April 2017

Incredibly insightful and enjoyable book; a must read!

Maanda, South Africa. 15 June 2017

Everyone need to read this book, you will be amazed. Well written and its an eye opener.

Mr G, South Africa. 22 July 2017

Was a good read. Very humble stories and nothing much about his stardom and fame. Guess thats why this book will appeal to many . Can wait for a next installment.
