Listening to it was tough. Really boring honestly. However, I do believe that it’s a valuable book, so I might have to pick up the print version.

I'm going to be honest. When I read the title of this book, I thought, "I'm not interested in race or any implications behind it right now." I was looking for a book that was going to teach me how to live life. Not another book about how a black person overcame oppression. Just wasn't looking for that the time. But I listened to it anyways after listening to the preview, and it was the best book I have read. It was more about life than anything else. Charlamagne also filled the book with more inappropriate punchlines than Will Ferrel in the Step Brothers. This was just incredible. I'm going to listen to it again.

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.

There were many times when I sat in the parking lot to listen more of what was going to happen next. I also looked forward to driving because that meant that I could listen to Trevor Noah talk about life in South Africa. I walk away now with an appreciation for what I have, the opportunities that have been bestowed upon me, and the fairness of my home country. Thank you Trevor Noah for sharing your story! It was a real paradigm shifter!
