Die oorlewingstog van 'n dapper vrou
“ ʼn Kale vlakte waar my regterbors eens was. Ek maak my oë toe en laat my brein toe om te proe aan hierdie monumentale ding. Kanker schmanker, besluit ek. Ek is nog net soveel vrou soos voor die operasie. My vroulikheid het toe al die tyd nie in my bors gesit nie. Dit sit in my kop, in my hart, in daardie onmeetbare, onaantasbare iets wat die gees genoem word.”
In hierdie aangrypende boek deel die bekende spanningsverhaalskrywer Madelein Rust die intiemste besonderhede van haar reis met borskanker. Dit is ʼn brutaal eerlike vertelling wat haar belewenis van die siekte met patos en humor uitbeeld. Lesers verkry ʼn eiesoortige blik op die fisieke ervarings van borskankerstryders sowel as die ewig veranderende binnewêreld van dié wat teen die siekte veg.
Kanker schmanker! rus borskankerstryders toe met inligting wat nie altyd geredelik beskikbaar is nie en help hul geliefdes om die reis met kanker beter te verstaan. Dit is ʼn boek van hoop en triomf wat die leser hardop laat huil en laat lag. Dis 'n verhaal vir elkeen van ons wat ʼn stryd van enige aard stry.

Deon Maas, television producer and author of fiendishly funny Witboy in Africa, joined the boatloads of migrants heading for Germany when opportunity struck. Faced with the choice to take all his life belongings along or sell it all, he opted for the latter. With a duffel bag and his four dogs, he left for the First World. Vibrant, decadent Berlin blew his mind but also left him at a loss for words. While trying to find his feet, he has to deal with obnoxious bureaucrats, nosy neighbours who are weary of foreigners and a construction worker who insists he speaks German. He marvels at German idiosyncrasies and is roped into his new world by vegan anarchists, football hooligans and graffiti artists.

Toe sy vrou werk kry in Duitsland, besluit Deon Maas in ‟n oogwink om Berlyn toe te trek. In hierdie intellektueel stimulerende, dekadente stad voel hy hom op sekere maniere dadelik tuis - op ander nie. In die reis wat alle immigrante meemaak, ontdek hy meer oor homself en sy wortels terwyl hy sy voete in sy nuwe omgewing vind. Hy verwonder hom aan tipies Duitse gewoontes soos dat alle oorsese televisieprogramme (swak) oorgeklank word en dat die Duitsers hul sin vir ordelikheid op alles en almal afdwing. Op sy avonture ontmoet hy veganistiese anargiste, sokkerboewe, ‟n lid van ‟n satiriese Duitse politieke party en neem hy selfs aan ‟n protesoptog deel. Maas ontdek dat alles nie perfek werk in die Eerste Wêreld nie.

Jeff Bezos started Amazon in 1994 as an online bookstore based out of his garage. Since then, the ever-expanding enterprise has revolutionized shopping and, in many important ways, invented e-commerce as we know it. Today, Amazon is the third-most valuable company in the world, and Bezos's vast customer-oriented empire has mushroomed to include everything from cloud computing and fresh food delivery to movie production and consumer electronics. In recent years, Bezos also has invested in rocket technology, newspaper publishing, and artificial intelligence. Every arm of Bezos's business, however, is guided by a fundamental goal: to give customers what they want before they even think to ask for it. This book offers a unique look into the mind of one of the world's most successful entrepreneurs.

Drawing on Nelson Mandela's own unfinished memoir, Dare Not Linger is the remarkable story of his presidency told in his own words and those of distinguished South African writer Mandla Langa 'I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.' Long Walk to Freedom.
In 1994, Nelson Mandela became the first president of democratic South Africa. Five years later, he stood down. In that time, he and his government wrought the most extraordinary transformation, turning a nation riven by centuries of colonialism and apartheid into a fully functioning democracy in which all South Africa's citizens, black and white, were equal before the law.
Dare Not Linger is the story of Mandela's presidential years, drawing heavily on the memoir he began to write as he prepared to finish his term of office, but was unable to finish. Now, the acclaimed South African writer, Mandla Langa, has completed the task using Mandela's unfinished draft, detailed notes that Mandela made as events were unfolding and a wealth of previously unseen archival material. With a prologue by Mandela's widow, Graça Machel, the result is a vivid and inspirational account of Mandela's presidency, a country in flux and the creation of a new democracy. It tells the extraordinary story of the transition from decades of apartheid rule and the challenges Mandela overcome to make a reality of his cherished vision for a liberated South Africa.
