I can't imagine reading this story and feeling as moved as I was listening to Trevor Noah tell the story of his life. As he switch between different languages and accents it was as if I were in the room with him. I have an entirely different vision of South Africa now than I did when I started listening. I now need to learn more. Mesmerizing!

Gretchen Rubin gives practical, actionable advice. But more importantly, she offers meaty food for thought. I listened to the whole book, nodding in agreement and laughing as I recognized myself. I am going to buy a print copy.

Good narration, especially the mother. I really liked the way the author went back and forth in time to build pictures of the various characters. I had to listen to the last several chapters non-stop!
