I took off one star because of how short this was. Other than that, I truly feel that I now view leadership in a new and interesting light.

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.

Trevor Noah has a deep and poignant story to tell.

He tells his story using simple language and a diverse array of subtle tones in his voice. The bond he shared with his mom during childhood is admirable.

Overall, I enjoyed this one, but one area that could have been better is the way the chapters are organized.

  • Revolution for Dummies

Bassem Youssef's incendiary satirical news program, Al-Bernameg ( The Program), chronicled the events of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, the fall of President Hosni Mubarak, and the rise of Mubarak's successor, Mohamed Morsi. Youssef not only captured his nation's dissent, but stamped it with his own brand of humorous political criticism, in which the Egyptian government became the prime laughing stock. In Revolution for Dummies, Youssef recounts his life and offers hysterical riffs on hypocrisy, instability, and corruption.

Listening to Bassem Youssef was an enlightening experience.

The man is funny. His voice is just fine.
