One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

I love Trevor Noah, and I didn't check reviews when I was adding the book. This book is boring, it is biography of his life. First chapters are Ok then you say alright it is good to know how his life was but then you see OMG the rest are long and boring, I felt like every one can write a book like this. I wish chapters were brief.
The only reason I am still listening to book is because I don't like leaving a book unfinished.
