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.

Don’t expect epiphanies. There is some interesting thoughts and stories about his father. Most the stories are written 40 years ago so it’s outdated, not only technically but also socially. Shockingly outdated are expressions about the “female mind”. Valuable are the opinion on education and scientific methods. This book might be interesting to someone that will be a father/mother, though she/he would have to skim out a bit of tech-memorabilia.
