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.

Woefully uninteresting day to day walkthrough of a not so interesting life. One account is that of the writer recalling pooing onto paper, placing the paper in a bin where it is found by his mother, who is appauled, and holds a sèance. I didn't even finish listening.Sorry. Would rather watch paint dry....

Uncover why the Titanic sank, ponder the sinister Vatican/Mafia network that plotted the assassination of liberal John Paul, find out why NASA 'lost' its files on Mars, read why no-one enters Area 51, and consider why medical supplies were already on site at Edgware Road before the 7/7 bombs detonated. Just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean that they aren't out to conspire against you.

The narration is flawless, as is the authors ability to weave between relevant theories. There are some great facts in this book. Great for a flight or train journey...
