Ton Vosloo's remarkable career in the media spanned nearly 60 years in South Africa's history. During this turbulent time, South Africa went through the transition from Afrikaner Nationalist rule to an ANC government. At the helm of the leading press group founded in 1913 to support nascent Afrikaner nationalism, Vosloo's story is not just one of newspapers and politics but also one of singular business and commercial success as the Naspers Group evolved from a print
group to an electronic company with significant investments across the world. In 1983 Vosloo was appointed managing director of Naspers and set about vigorously transforming the group. On the ideological front, it was a fight to the death with the old Transvaal's predominantly right-wing Perskor Group for the soul of the Afrikaner.

Ton Vosloo is een van die mees gerekende koerant- en sakemanne in Suid-Afrika. Gedurende sy loopbaan van sowat sestig jaar het Suid-Afrika op politieke front 'n drastiese ommekeer ondergaan: die Nasionale Party het plek gemaak vir 'n ANC-regering, wat gelei het tot transformasie op sosiale, ekonomiese en sakefront. In 1983 is Vosloo as die besturende direkteur van Naspers aangestel en het hy hom dit ten doel gestel om dié groep - wat in 1913 as mondstuk van die Nasionale Party gestig is - te vernuwe. Vosloo het die maatskappy deur diep, onstuimige waters gestuur: op ideologiese vlak was dit 'n geveg tot die dood toe met die regse Perskor-groep om die steun van Afrikaners te wen. Naspers moes ook op kommersiële vlak moderniseer.

Joost Wilfried Dirk Pyck is gebore in Gent op 25 Maart 1955 wat eintlik 25 April moes wees. Hy arriveer een maand te vroeg omdat sy moeder, toe net terug van die dokter, tussen vegtende studente moes deurkom. Die een groep was Vlaamse nasionaliste en die ander was anti-Vlaams. Net daar het hy sy opwagting gemaak. “Ek wou help om die regte Vlaminge te help,” reken hy graag.

Sy ouers is Wes-Vlaminge uit Brugge waar hy in sy vroeë jare gewoon het, daarna weer in Gent en later In Oostende aan die see. In1974 het hy vir drie jaar by die Belgiese Valskermkommando aangesluit. Later het hy as skrynwerker-meubelmaker begin werk terwyl hy aandklasse in beeldhou gevolg het en nog later homself bekwaam as klipkapper (natuursteenbewerker).

In 1993 beland hy in Suid-Afrika, eers in die Noord-Kaap, maar verhuis later na Klapmuts waar hy vorder tot meester-klipkapper. Hy, sy vrou Marie en hul Russiese Ural-syspanmotorfiets bly op 'n kleinhoewe, loopafstand van die Klapmuts-hotel af, waar jy hom (en Marie) meeste Vrydagmiddae sal kry met 'n welverdiende bier in sy hand en skuim op sy weglêsnor.

Hy bly trots Vlaams, maar is terselfdertyd 'n vurige kampvegter vir Afrikaans. Hy verwoord daarom ook graag sy stories in Afrikaans, gesout en gepeper met korrels Vlaams tussenin. Die Vlaminge is bekend vir hul vele dialekte. Joost s'n is absoluut uniek.

At Close of Day is the author's thoughts and meditations about old-age, ageing and the end of a life, together with memories of a general nature to give a stirring depiction of the author's life of almost eighty years. The series of autobiographical books that started with 'n Duitser aan die Kaap, Merksteen and Die laaste Afrikaanse boek is concluded with this work.
It is a highly personal book about old-age, the process of writing and self-determination with commentary about ageing and being old in a modern society, and was updated for the last time on 26 April 2017, a few days before his death. He gives practical hints and information about the possible and probable end of his life. The element of farewell and acceptance are obvious throughout the text. He realises that old age becomes the main theme of his thoughts and his daily life.
The references and quotations are poignant and speak of someone who made his reading world his living word. In the end he explains his liberating decision about his planned suicide.

Winging It
Jonathan Kaplan's journey from World-Class Ref to Rookie Solo Dad

Jonathan Kaplan, celebrated international rugby referee and former world record-holder for most Test caps, had his fair share of challenging moments on the field. He was known for his commitment to fair play, ability to defuse tense situations, and courage in making difficult, and sometimes controversial, decisions. All this would stand JK in good stead and come back into play when, at the age of 47, he made two life-changing decisions.

The first was to blow his whistle for the last time and end his career as a professional rugby ref. The second was to become a parent - and a solo parent at that. This is the story of JK's decision to have a baby by surrogate, the two-year fertility process that followed, and the subsequent birth of his son Kaleb.Winging It draws on the insights of key role-players in JK's journey, including the extraordinary experience of the surrogate mother herself. Exchanging rucks for reflux, mauls for milk bottles, scrums for storks (and other stories about Kaleb's conception), this account of how JK navigates the choppy waters of parenthood is disarmingly frank and scrupulously honest. At times poignant and tender, and at others downright funny, this is a thoroughly contemporary take on what constitutes a family and how we dare to build one.

One of the greatest political memoirs of all time' (Guardian) -- The Sunday Times Number 1 Bestseller What happens when you take on the establishment? In this blistering, personal account, world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis blows the lid on Europe's hidden agenda and exposes what actually goes on in its corridors of power. Varoufakis sparked one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in recent political history when, as finance minister of Greece, he attempted to re-negotiate his country's relationship with the EU. Despite the mass support of the Greek people and the simple logic of his arguments, he succeeded only in provoking the fury of Europe's political, financial and media elite. But the true story of what happened is almost entirely unknown - not least because so much of the EU's real business takes place behind closed doors. In this fearless account, Varoufakis reveals all: an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship, hypocrisy, collusion and betrayal that will shake the deep establishment to its foundations. As is now clear, the same policies that required the tragic and brutal suppression of Greece's democratic uprising have led directly to authoritarianism, populist revolt and instability throughout the Western world. Adults In The Room is an urgent wake-up call to renew European democracy before it is too late.

Here is Mandela the statesman, the prisoner, the father, sometimes the joker, and occasionally the disciplinarian.

Mandela is shown in snapshot, in the memories of old friends like George Bizos, in the words of inspiring legends like Muhammad Ali, leading the Defiance Campaign against apartheid laws, or doing the famous Madiba shuffle to Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Queen Elizabeth II.

100 Mandela Moments is an accessible introduction to the man who so profoundly influenced the South Africa of today.

The story of his life that emerges is as varied and complex, as touching and inspiring, as Madiba himself
