On 5 December 2017 the Steinhoff group was still worth R199 billion. Twenty four hours later more than R160 billion of this fortune was wiped out. The Steinhoff Empire which took 20 years to build into an international business giant, had crumbled overnight.
Markus Jooste, Steinhoff's flashy CEO, resigned via SMS and has since been fleeing an avalanche of scandals and accusations: luxury homes for a blonde mistress, allegations of fraud, racing horses and unparalleled extravagance, a lavish, black Jaguar for an old university residence…
What exactly happened here? Who knew what? What is Steinhoff, who is Markus Jooste and what does it all have to do with the so called Stellenbosch mafia? Where does business tycoon Christo Wiese, Shoprite and Pepkor fit in and where is the pensioners' money?
Well-known financial writer James-Brent Styan unpacks these and other questions in this astounding tale of power and greed, of secrets and deceit, and ultimately the biggest financial breakdown in the history of South Africa.
Through interviews with trustworthy sources, revelations from confidential documents and in-depth research about Steinhoff's history, Styan uncovers what the group doesn't want you to know.
Follow the Money: The story of Steinhoff, Markus Jooste and the Stellenbosch Boys is a gripping financial thriller that will be told as cautionary tale or salacious scandal in both boardrooms and living rooms for decades to come.

Op Dinsdag 5 Desember 2017 was die Steinhoff-groep nog R199 miljard werd. Vier en twintig uur later is meer as R160 miljard daarvan uitgewis. Die Steinhoff-sakeryk, wat oor 20 jaar tot 'n internasionale sakereus opgebou is, het oornag verkrummel.
Markus Jooste, Steinhoff se flambojante grootbaas, het per SMS bedank en vlug sedertdien van die een na die ander geraamte wat uit sy kas val: tientalle spoghuise vir 'n blonde minnares, resiesperde, bewerings van bedrog en 'n blinkswart Jaguar vir 'n ou universiteitskoshuis.
Wat presies het hier gebeur? Wie het wat geweet? Wat is Steinhoff, wie is Markus Jooste en wat het dit met die sogenaamde Stellenbosch-mafia te doen? Hoe pas Christo Wiese, Shoprite en Pepkor in en waarheen is die pensionarisse se geld? Die bekende sakeskrywer James-Brent Styan beantwoord dié en ander vrae in hierdie verstommende verhaal van die grootste finansiële ineenstoring in die geskiedenis van Suid-Afrika.
Deur onderhoude met betroubare bronne, inligting uit vertroulike dokumente en in- dieptenavorsing oor Steinhoff se geskiedenis, onthul hy dít wat die groep oor jare probeer wegsteek het.

Steinhoff en die Stellenbosse Boys is 'n boeiende sakeriller wat nog dekades lank in sowel raadsale as sitkamers oorvertel sal word.

In this new biography of Chris Barnard we not only learn about the life of South Africa's most famous surgeon, from his Beaufort West childhood through his studies locally and abroad to his prominent marriages - and divorces - but James Styan also examines the impact of the historic heart transplant on Barnard's personal life and South African society at large, where apartheid legislation often made the difficulties of medicine even more convoluted.
The role of black medical staff like Hamilton Naki is explored, as is the intense rivalry that arose between other famous heart surgeons and Barnard. How did Barnard manage to beat them all in this race of life and death? How much did his famous charisma have to do with it all? And in the light of his later years, his subsequent successes and considerable failures, what is Barnard's legacy today?

Styan covers it all in this fascinating new account of a real heartbreaker that coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first heart transplant.

Vir die vroue wat hy met sy rolprentsterglimlag betower het, was Chris Barnard 'n hartebreker. Vir sy pasiënte 'n harteheler.
Dié nuwe biografie oor Suid-Afrika se beroemdste hartsjirurg vertel nie net van Barnard se kinderjare in Beaufort-Wes, sy prominente huwelike (en egskeidings) en flambojante lewe nie. James Styan ondersoek ook die impak van die historiese eerste hartoorplanting op Barnard se persoonlike lewe en op die Suid-Afrikaanse gemeenskap oor die algemeen, waar apartheidswetgewing dikwels die probleme van geneeskunde nog ingewikkelder gemaak het. Die rol van swart mediese personeel soos Hamilton Naki word bespreek, sowel as die intense wedywering wat tussen ander beroemde hartsjirurge en Barnard ontstaan het.
Hoe het Barnard dit reggekry om hulle almal in dié resies om lewe en dood te wen? Hoeveel het sy welbekende sjarme daarmee te doen gehad? En wat is Barnard se nalatenskap vandag, in die lig van sy latere suksesse en aansienlike mislukkings? Styan dek dit alles in dié fassinerende nuwe blik op Chris Barnard.

In 1998 the South African government was warned that the country was running out of electricity. Despite the warnings, the decision was taken not to invest in new power stations. Had the warnings been heeded, South Africa could have had a new power station up and running by 2006 and load shedding may never have happened. Instead, in 2007, as predicted, South Africa ran out of electricity.
Eight years later, the crisis has deepened and despite assurances to the contrary by government leadership, it has the potential to become the biggest post-apartheid crisis in South Africa. By 2015 load shedding cost the South African economy an estimated R2 billion per day.

Is the situation getting better or worse? Are the interventions working or is a blackout inevitable? What can be done and what do future scenarios look like?

Eskom - The Unauthorised Story provides a look at what's happening to one of the greatest power utilities in the world, the greatest on the African continent. It deals with everything from load shedding to blackouts and unpacks the issues raging around candlelight dinners in households across South Africa today.
