Count your blessings every single day.

Trevor Noah never had an easy life growing up. Growing up as the son of an illegal birth, Trevor had to be hidden away every time and his existence should never be known.

Born a Crime is Trevor Noah's brave and inspiring journey towards adulthood as he was finally liberated by the end of South Africa's tyrannical white rule. How did a boy who has been running and hiding away all his life manage to achieve such great success?

"Often, people who can do, don't because they're afraid of what people that can't do will say about them doing." (Trevor Noah)

Born a Crime is a book of a mischievous boy's journey towards greatness. Filled with emotions, Born a Crime made it to become the number-one New York Times best-seller. This inspirational and compelling story will never let you down.

PS: Feeling unmotivated and lost with your life? Harness the power of gratitude and realize how great your life already is with this book!

    "This is not the actual book."

    Horrible. This is not the actual audio book read by Trevor Noah. This is a scam. Get the real book.

    "good book"


    It's always great to listened to an audiobook narrated by the author himself. Trevor does a great job of impersonating the various figures of his life and giving the serious and comedic parts of the book the proper tone. The book itself is funny and well-explained. It carries a lot of insight into race and poverty as well as Trevor's personal life and the events that shaped him. It was a great pleasure to listen

    "must listen"


    I bought this book on Kindle just before my first trip to South Africa. I began reading it on the plane, and tonight, lying in bed in a Johannesburg airbnb, I just finished it. The authors journey is an amazing and uplifting one, juxtaposed as it is with the journey of his people and his country. This is the best biography I have read in a long, long time. And beyond all of that, this book has helped me to understand the country that I am now experiencing.

    "amazing story"


    Such an amazing story. I was intrigued every second of the book and respect Trevor Noah even more now that I've read about his struggles. He worked hard to get to where he is and that is a beautiful story, the American dream

    "nice book"


    loved this book, I learned so much about apartheid and the struggles of a mixed race child growing up in South Africa. I have so much respect for Trevor Noah as his life could have easily gone in a very different direction. He changed his destiny and wrote about his struggles making one laugh and cry in the same chapter.

    "must listen"

    Funny, Heartbreaking, and Inspiring all at once. Born A Crime is a must-read from author Trevor Noah. He is a gifted story teller and you will not be able to put this down until you have finished. Given the circumstances TN grew up in his mother raised a remarkable man in unyielding circumstances

    "great warming guide"

    I had no idea Trevor came from such a background - I also didn't know much about the apartheid before this book - a humorous and heartwarming book
