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.

This story reached inside my heart, my mind and my soul. It is at the same time enlightening, uplifting, frightening and so touching--probably more than any book I've read. Trevor Noah brings you into his life, his emotions, his world and I left feeling so much richer for it. I feel as though I know him and I want to know him. I have watched him for years but I will never see him the same way again. I'm very grateful for his courage in sharing his story.

More than a decade ago, The Gallup Organization combed through its database of more than one million employee and manager interviews to identify the elements most important in sustaining workplace excellence. These elements were revealed in the 1999 best-seller First, Break All the Rules. 12: The Elements of Great Managing is that management classic's long-awaited sequel.
