The compelling, inspiring (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. One of the comedy world's brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life.

Awesome!
Not like his comedy routines.
But very funny stories from his childhood in shanty town squalor.
His mother was amazing.
He was half-black half white born in apartheid.
Doesn't cover his career in comedy etc
Tragedy pain humour hustling naughtiness etc
Leave with Hope and gratitude in face of challenging life
Great narration
Highly recommend

In one of the most exciting and accessible explanations of The Theory of Relativity in recent years, Professors Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw go on a journey to the frontier of 21st century science to consider the real meaning behind the iconic sequence of symbols that make up Einstein's most famous equation, exploring the principles of physics through everyday life.

Very well explained.
Have been trying to get my head around relativity for years - and this has almost former there.
Co-author reading it knows the meaning of every sentence before he reads it so it sounds like your with someone who is just explaining things for you
