At the age of twenty-three, Ernesto 'Che' Guevara and his friend Alberto Granado set out from their native Argentina to explore their continent, with only a single 1939 Norton motorcycle to carry them, nicknamed La Poderosa ('the powerful one').
They travelled not to visit the usual tourist attractions, but to meet ordinary people and understand Latin American life. In amidst the tales of youthful adventures - of women, wine, thrilling escapes and the power of friendship - the young Che also learns first-hand about poverty, philosophy and forms himself into the man who would become the world's most famous and admired revolutionary and freedom fighter.

An icon of the last fifty years, Stephen Hawking seems to encapsulate genius: not since Albert Einstein has a scientific figure held such a position in popular consciousness. In this enthralling memoir, writer and physicist Leonard Mlodinow tells the story of his friend and their friendship, offering an intimate account of this giant of science.
The two met in 2003 when Stephen asked Leonard if he would consider writing a book with him, the follow up to the bestselling A Brief History of Time. As they spent years working on a second book, The Grand Design, they forged a deep connection and Leonard gained a much better understanding of Stephen's daily life and struggles - as well as his compassion and good humour. Together they obsessed over the perfect sentence, debated the physics, and occasionally punted on Cambridge's waterways with champagne and strawberries. In time, Leonard was able to finish Stephen's jokes, chide his sporadic mischief, and learn how the hardships of his illness helped forge that unique perspective on the universe.

In 2018 het die doodsengel drie keer aan die oudrugbyspeler Ethienne Reynecke se deur geklop. Hy het geweier om oop te maak - toe sy milt bars, toe hy 'n beroerte gehad het en toe hy in die agterkop geskiet is. Boonop, ná 'n egskeiding daardie jaar, het sy twee liefingdogters na 'n ander stad verhuis. Die noodlot het sy spraakvermoë gesteel en hom sy werk as kommentator by SuperSport gekos. Dit het hom, soos Reynecke dit stel, in 'n pampoen verander. Maar het hy geweier om bes te gee. Dit was 'n stryd om sy krag en woorde te herwin. Tussendeur moes hy pa wees vir jong dogters. Hulle en sy vriende het hom gehelp om ná elke hamerhou op te staan. Minder as twee jaar later, in Maart 2020, word Reynecke die Suid-Afrikaanse ligswaargewig-amateurkampioen in gemengde gevegskuns (MMA). Hierdie is die storie van hoe Ethienne Reynecke dit reggekry het om staande te bly en vas te klou aan hoop waar wanhoop ander sou meesleur. In hierdie boek, wat met Reynecke se samewerking geskryf is, word 'n boodskap van hoop en bemoediging tuisgebring. Onder andere praat Reynecke en ander beroerte-oorlewendes praat oor die herstelproses. Die boek bied ook 'n binneblik op die wêrelde van beroepsrugby en gemengde gevegskuns, en Reynecke en sielkundiges praat oor wat dit verg om die oorgangsfase van beroepsport na die lewe ná sport te maak. Bekendes uit die rugbywêreld deel ook hul herinneringe en indrukke. Dit sluit in John Smit, AJ Venter, Gcobani Bobo, Ernst Joubert, Roland Bernard, Anton van Zyl, Cobus Grobbelaar, en Eugene “Loffie” Eloff.

In the 1980s, Erika Bornman's family join, and ultimately move, to KwaSizabantu, a Christian mission based in KwaZulu-Natal, which is touted as a nirvana, founded on egalitarian values. But something sinister lurks beneath 'the place where people are helped'.
Life at KwaSizabantu is hard. Christianity is used to justify harsh punishments and congregants are forced to repent for their sins. Threats of physical violence ensure adherence to stringent rules. Parents are pitted against children. Friendships are discouraged. Isolated and alone, Erika lives in constant fear of eternal damnation.
At 16, her grooming at the hands of a senior mission councillor begins. For the next five years, KwaSizabantu wages emotional, psychological and sexual warfare on her, until, finally, she manages to break free and escape at the age of 21.
Escaping a cult is difficult, but rehabilitation into 'normal' life after a decade of ritual humiliation, brainwashing and abuse is much more painful, as Erika soon discovers. She cannot ignore her knowledge of the grievous human-rights abuses being committed at KwaSizabantu, and so she embarks on a quest to expose the atrocities.
Mission of Malice - My Escape from a Fundamentalist Cult chronicles Erika's journey from a fearful young girl to a fierce activist determined to do whatever it takes to save future generations and find personal redemption and self-acceptance.

Can a startup conquer the biggest and most entrenched industry in the global economy?
The petrol car transformed our lives, both as a lifestyle object and a means of transport. It created a new economy and changed the design of our cities, but also led to pollution, congestion and climate change. Electric cars are the next frontier that could save the industry- but will they ever be good enough?
Few people are crazy or ambitious enough to enter the automobile market from scratch - with infamously thin profit margins that require massive scale, against gigantic incumbent companies with global platforms that have been around for over a century. But Elon Musk likes a challenge.
Tesla silenced their doubters early on by doing the impossible and creating a luxury electric sportscar, but now they face the biggest trial yet: delivering and manufacturing an affordable electric family car to the masses - the Tesla Model 3. This is the car they've been promising since the start, the £30k electric car that will change the market forever. Hundreds of thousands have been pre-ordered, and are due to deliver around the world. Success would transform how we travel, bring massive environmental benefits and the potential to fast-track the self-driving car revolution. But amid high-profile resignations at the company, profit warnings and late-night twitterstorms, can Elon Musk and Tesla meet demand and deliver what they've promised?
A fascinating, insider business story of one of the most talked-about companies in the world, BLIND CORNER will put you in the driving seat as Tesla and Elon Musk face the race of their lives.

My name is Faith Morgan and I was born into the infamous Children of God cult, or 'The Family'. At age 19 I managed to escape and entered a world in which I had to learn how to live again. My teenage diary helps piece the story of my travels in Costa Rica, India, Greece, Mexico, and London together. Of the communes, the 'missions', the friendships and the relationships. And of course, my
enduring faith in Jesus, in the Prophet (cult leader David Berg), and in the inevitability of the coming end times, which I fully believed would arrive. But beyond the brainwashing and mistreatment is the extraordinary story of my family and the adventures of my early life which help me understand what happened and why, so it doesn't happen to others.

Fly the Tattered Dreamcoat is the story of Whetsho-otsile Joseph (Joe) Seremane, the founding federal chair of the Democratic Alliance in South Africa. Joe's story spans six decades and tells of a visionary who survived incarceration at Robben Island, exile to Bophuthatswana and further incarceration at Fort Glamorgan.
Joe starts out as a champion of the banned People's Africanist Congress but gradually develops a more holistic viewpoint. He concludes that he can contribute to the new democracy by helping to swell the ranks of the opposition. Eventually, in 2002, Joe finds his way to the Democratic Alliance as their founding federal chair. Hurt and disappointment come his way as he is seen as a traitor and a coconut by erstwhile comrades and co-prisoners.
As democracy in his beloved homeland starts to shed its skin of idealism and hope, he has to grapple with grave personal loss and a compelling question: Who is the enemy really? In his foreword, Tony Leon, erstwhile leader of the DA, notes: I commend Fly the Tattered Dream Coat, both for its deep dive into this country's history-in-the-making and the human story it describes one of the more significant but underappreciated fighters for South Africa's freedom.
In this engaging and authentic record of Joe's storied careers and background, Dr Maske recounts Joe's presence in my life at both its happiest and saddest …

Sharon Stone, one of the most renowned actresses in the world, suffered a massive stroke that cost her not only her health, but her career, family, fortune, and global fame. In The Beauty of Living Twice, she chronicles her efforts to rebuild her life, and the slow road back to wholeness and health. In an industry that doesn't accept failure, in a world where too many voices are silenced, Stone found the power to return, the courage to speak up, and the will to make a difference in the lives of women and children around the globe.
Over the course of these intimate pages, Stone talks about her pivotal roles, her life-changing friendships, her worst disappointments, and her greatest accomplishments. She reveals how she went from a childhood of trauma and violence to a business that in many ways echoed those same assaults, under cover of money and glamour. She describes the strength and meaning she found in her children, and in her humanitarian efforts. And ultimately, she shares how she fought her way back to find not only her truth, but her family's reconciliation and love.

Stone made headlines not just for her talent and beauty, but for her candour and her refusal to 'play nice,' and it's those same qualities that make this memoir so powerful. The Beauty of Living Twice is a book for the wounded, and a book for the survivors; it's a celebration of women's strength and resilience, a reckoning, and a call to activism. It is proof that it's never too late to raise your voice, and speak out.

Cops and Robbers: we think we know how to tell the good guys from the bad, but when it comes to Cape Town's crime scene, things are anything but clear-cut. Controlled by gangs, fuelled by drugs and policed by cops that, all too often, get caught on the wrong side of the action.
Among the Cape Town cops who have consistently claimed that colleagues are trying to pin crimes on them are Major General Andre Lincoln (former head of a national police unit mandated by Nelson Mandela), Major General Jeremy Vearey (known as SA's top gang buster) and Lieutenant Colonel Charl Kinnear (who was investigating some of the country's most brutal underworld crimes when he was assassinated in September 2020). Colleagues and suspects alike pointed to all three as colluding with criminals. Who is telling the truth?
Journalist Caryn Dolley has tracked this tangled trail, following the corruption breadcrumbs, sifting through court documents, laying fact upon fact and exposing the depths and breadth of systemic corruption that was set in place during apartheid and has only become more entrenched during the first decades of our democracy. She has traced the rot from cops to the underworld to politicians and back, exposing duplicitous networks that have for decades ensnared South Africa in an expanding cycle of organised crime and cop claim crossfire. At the centre of this crisis is the mounting collateral: the victims of Cape Town's manufactured killing fields.
To The Wolves tells the true life story of how South Africa's underworld came to be, what continues to fuel it today and how the deception and lies go all the way to the top...
