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 book is full of fascinating life stories and was a window into post-Apartheid South Africa. Trevor Noah’s delivery couldn’t have been any better - he gave accents to all his characters and could speak in the multiple languages that were in his book. I was completely drawn into his stories and found myself listening to the book outside of times when I usually listen to my Audible books.

Popular parenting expert Dr. Laura Markham, author of Peaceful Parents, Happy Siblings, has garnered a large and loyal readership around the world thanks to her simple, insightful approach that values the emotional bond between parent and child. As any parent of more than one child knows, though, it's challenging for even the most engaged parent to maintain harmony and a strong connection when competition, tempers, and irritation run high.

I have a 2 and 4 year old and found this book extremely helpful. Dr. Laura Markham is a gifted parent coach. She presents recommended approaches based on research and gives examples and scripts of how to productively handle common situations. This book provided me with lots of helpful tweaks to how I talk with my kids and encourage their sibling relationship. This is honestly the best parenting book I have read.
