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.

Can you imagine creating 10, 40, or even 100 different sources of income for yourself? For most people, that thought alone is a hard one to fathom; they immediately picture long, hard hours of never-ending work. But creating an MSI (Multiple Source of Income) isn’t about increasing exponential hours of work or your focused attention, it’s about increasing exponential, 'round-the-clock income through these incredibly easy steps.

am very moved by all I heard from Bob thus far.Now that am aware, my decision making is improving. I know there's a battle going on in my mind between my old paradigm of lack and poverty to the new one am creating where I AM whoever I decide to be.
