The compelling, inspiring (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. One of the comedy world's brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life.

An absolutely fascinating tale of Trevor Noah's childhood. You couldn't make this up!! He reads it with such character and passion too that you become fully immersed in his re-telling of his life. Would absolutely recommend!

Concise but bursting with timeless wisdom. Will definitely be relistening soon & also recommending to my friends & my niece. A beautiful coming of age book or an affirming life refresh. I think this is one of those books that I will get something different from each time I listen to it.

The 3-Day Effect is a look at the science behind why being in the wild for a minimum of three days can make us happier, healthier and more creative. Whether it’s rafting down Utah’s Green River, backpacking in Colorado wilderness or strolling through Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C., scientists are finding that immersions in nature can reduce anxiety, enhance creativity and boost overall well-being.
