Publisher's Summary

"I have learned the truth about the world: that it isn’t as round as a tennis ball, and it isn’t shaped like itself. It is shaped the way we shape it, according to the way we see it, the way we mould it to our ambitions and our destiny. I know the colour of who I am. I am a black man, running for my life, for my freedom, for opportunity born from struggle, possibility born from sacrifice. And I am running, too, for my father, who never became what he hoped to be, and who never got to see what his children would one day become." Maverick. Leadership genius. Self-made millionaire. Dragon.

Wish He Would've Narrated

Since I'm looking to get into public speaking my self, I figured it would only make sense to read Vusi's. I have watched most of his Master Class videos and his speeches.

I have to say, I was kind of disappointed with the narrator. He just didn't convey what I heard in Vusi's voice when listening to him talk. I think my issue is that I watched so much of his speaking events, I became use to his delivery.

Also, it felt like the book was written a more formal tone. So that may have thrown me off too.

So my suggestion is if this is your first time coming across his work. Read the book but make sure to looks for his speeches. You will appreciate the content and context so much more.
