'I feel as if I have been holding onto myself and holding my breath; as if I have had a bomb strapped around my body and have had to watch my every step and move - just in case it exploded. Slowly, I'm gaining the confidence to breathe deeply and exhale longer. Slowly, I'm reclaiming the freedom to move my body, to dance as I sing.' Dealing with the topical issue of trauma and mental health, Nompumelelo's inspirational story resonates deeply.

Rusty Labuschagne has been through trauma that few have experienced. In 2003, the successful Zimbabwean businessman ran a safari outfit, flew his own aircraft and had a fishing resort on Lake Kariba. By the end of that year, he had been framed by a poacher and the police and wrongfully convicted by the courts of drowning a man.
He served 10 years in Zimbabwe's prisons, including the notorious Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison, where food shortages were common, there was no running water and people were dying around him on a daily basis. He lost everything he worked for and his freedom.
Rusty's story is a testimony of incredible resilience in conditions most would find unbearable. He shares the life lessons he learnt - how to harness your inner strength, forgive and show gratitude - as he found true freedom through sincerity and humility.
A story of pure grit and unparalleled inspiration.
If you want to read about a man who loses everything, who is broken by a corrupt political system but who then rises to fight that system on his own terms and rebuilds himself from the inside out, then read 'Breating Chains'.

About the author: Rusty was released from prison in 2013 and has since become a speaker on the international circuit as he delivers the dramatic account of his transformational experience. He lives in Cape Town.

• This book is about the shaping of a different world. Not the grand sweeping shift of idealists or the disruptive change of radicals, but the deep and incremental breakthroughs of ordinary people.
• The story is about something much bigger than being a person with a state and a flag, religious identity or a culture participating in a particular cause. One by one the individual interviews connect the private and the public, the particular and the general, the paradigmatic and the practical, the micro and the meta. The point of departure of the 21 South African and Israeli activists is not a national state, but the moral state between people and the Palestinian struggle serves as a special, focused lens for global issues.
• This inspiring and well-researched book in plain language will appeal as much to newcomers to the topic as to seasoned scholars, activists and anyone interested in the kind of moral leadership that does not simply fix problems but shapes a better world. It is a must-have in a time when a crumbling world yearns for collective sanity

The much-anticipated and inspiring memoir by Indra Nooyi, the trailblazing former CEO of PepsiCo, offering clear-eyed insight and a call to action for how our society can really blend work and family - and advance women - in the twenty-first century.
For more than a dozen years as one of the world's most admired CEOs, Indra Nooyi redefined what it means to be an exceptional leader. The first woman, person of colour, and immigrant to run a Fortune 50 company - and one of the foremost strategic thinkers of our time - Nooyi transformed PepsiCo with a unique vision, a vigorous pursuit of excellence, and a deep sense of purpose.
Now, in a rich memoir brimming with grace, grit, and good humor, My Life in Full offers a firsthand view of a legendary career and the sacrifices it so often demanded.
In her book, Nooyi shares the events that shaped her - from her childhood in 1960s India, to the Yale School of Management, to her rise as a consultant and corporate strategist who soon ascended into the most senior executive ranks. The book offers an intimate look inside PepsiCo, detailing how she steered the iconic American company toward healthier products and reinvented its environmental profile without curbing financial performance - despite resistance at every turn.
At the same time, Nooyi built a home with her husband - also a high-powered executive - two daughters, and members of her extended family. My Life in Full includes her unvarnished take on the competing pressures on her attention and time, and what she learned along the way. This book, as has her personal journey, will inspire young women everywhere to believe that they, too, can climb to powerful roles without giving up on the desire for a family and children. But, as Nooyi eloquently argues, her story is not a call for women to simply try harder, but is proof of the importance of organised care structures in all of our success. Nooyi makes a clear, actionable, urgent call for business and government to prioritise the care ecosystem, from skilled care networks to zoning policy, to paid leave and flexible and predictable work hours, each so critical to unleashing the economy's full potential and helping families thrive.
Generous, authoritative, and grounded in lived experience, My Life in Full is both the story of an extraordinary leader's life, and a moving tribute to the relationships that created it.

For 14-year-old Johnny Clegg, hearing Zulu street music as plucked on the strings of a guitar by Charlie Mzila one evening outside a corner café in Bellevue, Johannesburg, was such a 'magical' moment.

The success story of Juluka and later Savuka, and the cross-cultural celebration of music, language, story, dance and song that stirred the hearts of millions across the world, is well documented. Their music was the soundtrack to many South Africans' lives during the turbulent 70s and 80s as the country moved from legislated oppression to democratic freedom. It crossed borders, boundaries and generations, resonating around the world and back again.

Less known is the story of how it all began and developed.

Scatterling of Africa is that origin story, as Johnny Clegg wrote it and wanted it told. It is the story of how the son of an unconventional mother, grandson of Jewish immigrants, came to realise that identity can be a choice, and home is a place you leave and return to as surely as the seasons change.

This memoir of the early days is filled with extraordinary stories of the determination with which Johnny pursued his quest to play the music he wanted, to the people who wanted to hear it. Written with passion and humour, it is also a record of the absurdity and tragedy of the times.

In April 2017 Pravin Gordan addressed a packed audience in St George's Cathedral in Cape Town. It was a week after President Jacob Zuma had fired him as Finance Minister, a move that signalled South Africa had been well and truly captured. Gordhan urged the crowd not to give up hope and to 'join the dots' in understanding what was taking place. At this moment he became a moral authority to many, someone who could fight the corruption.

Seasoned journalists Jonathan Ancer and Chris Whitfield take a magnifying glass to someone at the centre of South Africa's most tumultuous period and try to understand the man behind the public image. They go back to Durban in 1949 when Gordhan was born, tracing the significant events and influences that shaped his life and prompted him to become involved in politics as a pharmacy student at the University of Durban-Westville.

Ancer and Whitfield have interviewed close former activists to build a picture of his time in the underground and the role he played in the struggle including his detention and torture. It was during this time he worked closely with Zuma, the man who would, on the back of a bogus intelligence report, fire him as finance minister.

The book will examine why Gordhan has been dragged into major controversies like the rogue unit saga, the intelligence report and other smears against him. President Cyril Ramaphosa's right-hand man has made many enemies: public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane, Julius Malema and Ace Magashule to name a few.

Joining the Dots is an in-depth and satisfying read about a man who has been at the centre of South African public life.

Jonathan Ancer is an award-winning journalist who has worked as a reporter at The Star, a features writer for magazines, and a crossword columnist. This is his fourth book. Chris Whitfield has been a journalist for 40 years and is a former editor of the the Cape Times, the Cape Argus, the Weekend Argus and acting editor of The Witness and the Daily Sun. Prior to becoming an editor he was a political correspondent for The Star. This is his third book. Both are based in Cape Town.

Raised during the Rhodesian bush war and immigrating to SA at the age of 11, Terry is shaped by a white culture that is racist, unstable and deeply divided. Her childhood is bizarre as adults around her insist on living their version of normality while the world falls apart. White Trash is a remarkable memoir told with savage honesty as the narrator unravels what it means to be a white African. It's also a story about finding a shard of light amidst the depravity in a quest to reinvent the self.

A compelling and agonising story.
Durban-based journalist Glynis Horning and her husband Chris woke one Sunday morning almost two years ago to the devastating discovery of their 25-year-old son Spencer dead in his bed. Horning's story chronicles a parent's worst nightmare. Establishing that his death was suicide, Horning embarks on a journey of anguished self-recrimination. Should she not have seen the signs? Could she somehow have prevented it? As she struggles with Spencer's decision to end his life, she has to learn to understand what the depths of depression entail. We feel Horning's pain, and learn to understand and feel Spencer's pain, at a visceral level.
Surrounded by loving family and friends, Horning pieces together the puzzle of Spencer's death, writing with a brutal and heart-searing intensity of grief and loss, but also of the joys of celebrating her son's life. This book will touch anyone who has experienced a mental health journey directly or indirectly or a hearing loss. Her wisdom and insight are extraordinary.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest ever sportspeople, Roger Federer is a beloved as a phenomenon, a symbol of enduring greatness and yet is intensely private. But his path from a temperamental, bleach-blond teenager with dubious style sense to one of the
greatest, most self-possessed and elegant of competitors has been a long-running act of will, not destiny.

Based on 20 years of one-on-one interviews with Federer and with wide access to Federer's inner circle, including his coaches and key rivals, legendary sports reporter Christopher Carey's account will be a must-read retrospective for the loyal sports fan, and anyone interested in the inner workings of unfaltering excellence. The Master tells the story of Federer's life and career on both an intimate and grand scale.

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.
