In April 2013 a global breaking-news story surfaced on social media and in the world press, and rapidly gathered momentum. A South African man had fallen overboard in the night during a storm in remote Indonesian waters, without anyone else on board realising. Eight hours later a frantic search was underway. The incident caught the world's attention as readers were instantly transported into the terror of the moment - imagine being left alone, 100 kilometres out to sea in the middle of a storm, watching your friends sail into the distance... Had he been dealt a fraction more bad luck, Brett would have died immediately.
According to the experts, he should have died within 10 to 14 hours. But he chose not to die. Instead for 28-and-a-half hours Brett Archibald endured - the ocean, the elements, the creatures of the deep, and his own inner demons. Alone: The Search For Brett Archibald is the incredible but true story of what it takes to defy needle-in-a-haystack odds and survive what should have been certain death. Outdoor savvy, astonishing imagination, mental toughness, a refusal to give up hope and a canny rescuer with an unbelievable background ultimately saw him through.

Most of all this is a story of the power of the human spirit that defies rational explanation.

Like an apparition, conjured out of the darkness, a young man with light blond hair pushed his face into the car. I immediately spotted the knife. It was a long, thin weapon, almost like a letter opener, with a tapering blade. It felt cold and spiny as he pressed it to my neck. When he spoke his voice, which was quiet and controlled, sounded as though it emanated from a distant planet. But every word thudded into my skull.

'Move over or I'll kill you,' he whispered.

And so began Alison's nightmare journey with the two callous killers who were to rape her, stab her so many times doctors could not count the wounds, slit her throat and leave her for dead in a filthy clearing miles from the city of Port Elizabeth which was her home.

But Alison defied death. And more than that, she denied her attackers the satisfaction of destroying her life. I Have Life is the triumphant story of a woman who refused to become a victim. The courage which allowed her to move beyond severe physical and emotional trauma and to turn a devastating experience into something life-affirming and strong, is an inspiration to people everywhere

I stand in front of the mirror as I remind myself that I don't have to wear the uniform anymore. I don't have to dress myself in men's attire. I can grow out my nails, and paint them with polish. I am finally free to have my ears pierced. I can speak in the voice that I've spent so many hours cultivating with my speech therapist. I don't have to hide my disgust anymore at being called 'boet' or 'sir'. I no longer have to tolerate any references to my deadname.

Anastacia Tomson has fought hard for her right to live, held back for decades by a body that didn't fit, and an identity that never belonged to her. At first, it had seemed impossible - like transition was some romantic, impractical ideal that was incompatible with reality. But now, after five months of hormone therapy, countless sessions of painful laser hair removal, multiple appointments with doctors and psychologists, it is very much a reality ...

Born into an orthodox Jewish family in Johannesburg and brought up as a boy, Anastacia was never sure how much of her conflicted sense of self could be blamed on her often troubled family life and strict upbringing. It would take her nearly 30 years, a great deal of questioning, and a bravery she could never have imagined, to find the peace and selfacceptance she had always sought.

ANASTACIA TOMSON grew up in Johannesburg and graduated as a medical doctor from the University of Pretoria.
She has worked as a general practitioner both in the public and private sectors, as well as having a background in freelance journalism.
Anastacia has a passion for activism and advocacy, with a specific interest in promoting access to healthcare for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
She is a vocal feminist and strives to further the visibility and understanding of transgender issues at
every opportunity.

In Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future, veteran technology journalist Ashlee Vance provides the first inside look into the extraordinary life and times of Silicon Valley's most audacious entrepreneur. Written with exclusive access to Musk, his family and friends, the book traces the entrepreneur's journey from a rough upbringing in South Africa to the pinnacle of the global business world. Vance spent more than 30 hours in conversation with Musk and interviewed close to 300 people to tell the tumultuous stories of Musk's world-changing companies: PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX and SolarCity, and to characterize a man who has renewed American industry and sparked new levels of innovation while making plenty of enemies along the way.

Vance uses Musk's story to explore one of the pressing questions of our time: can the nation of inventors and creators which led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk--one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history--is a contemporary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy.

Ian: 'You're going to run how far?'
Ryan: '250 kilometres. But it's over seven days, though.'
Ian: 'And the furthest you've ever run is ...?'
Ryan: '42.2 kilometres... on the road. And on trail... 35 kilometres.'
Ian: 'Ryan, I think you need to reassess this...'

What does it take to run a six-day race through the world's harshest deserts? Or 100 miles in a single day at altitudes that would leave you breathless just walking? More than that, though: what is it like to win these races?

South Africa's ultra-trail-running superstar Ryan Sandes has done just that. Since bursting onto the international trail-running scene by winning the first multistage race he ever entered - the brutal Gobi March - Ryan has gone on to win various other multistage and single-day races around the globe.

Written with bestselling author and journalist Steve Smith, Trail Blazer - My Life as an Ultra-distance Trail Runner recounts the life story of this intrepid sportsman, from his experiences as a rudderless party animal to becoming a world-class athlete, and includes details on his training regimes, race strategies and aspirations for future sporting endeavours.

Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the adrenaline-inducing trials and tribulations of one of South Africa's most awe-inspiring athletes, while endurance-sport participants - from beginners to aspirant pros - will benefit from his insights and advice.

As Professor Tim Noakes says in the Foreword to this book: 'However much we might think we know and understand, there are some phenomena which now, and perhaps forever, we will never fully comprehend. We call such happenings "enigmas". Or even miracles. Ryan Sandes is one such.'

Op 29 April 1963 stuur die 29-jarige digter Ingrid Jonker 'n telegram aan André P. Brink. Sy bedank die 27-jarige skrywer vir blomme en 'n brief wat hy aan haar besorg het. In die meer as tweehonderd skrywes wat hierna tussen die twee volg, ontvou sekerlik die bekendste liefdesverhouding in die Afrikaanse literêre geskiedenis. Jonker se finale brief aan Brink is gedateer 18 April 1965 - drie maande voordat sy die see in loop by Drieankerbaai. Daar word slegs 1000 van die spesiale genommerde uitgawe in Afrikaans gedruk.

Dié weergawe word in 'n boekkoker met bykomende visuele materiaal uitgegee, met 'n kunswerk van Hanneke Benadé op die omslag.
Die boek sluit onbekende foto's uit André P. Brink se private versameling in, met 'n ekstra fotoseksie wat nie in die standaarduitgawe verskyn nie, onder meer onbekende persoonlike foto's van Ingrid Jonker.
Dit bevat 'n replika van 'n volledige brief van Ingrid Jonker in 'n koevert as insetsel.
Die briewe verskaf nuwe insigte in die skryfwerk en liefdesverhouding van twee van die bekendste skrywers in Suid-Afrika.

As jy in 1850 in Bristol 'n weeskind was, was die lewe hard maar as jy plek gekry het in Ashley Down, een van George Müller se Kinderhuise, het die toekoms weer gewink. By Ashley Down is daar waarlik na jou omgesien. Dit was soos om in 'n groot, gelukkige, liefdevolle gesin te wees. George Müller was so 'n vriendelike man, en Ashley Down was 'n besondere plek om te wees.

Maar... toe George Müller jonk was, was hy selfsugtig en niemand kon op hom reken nie. Sou jy iemand vertrou wat nie alleen sy vriende se geld gesteel het nie, maar ook sy ouers s'n? Wat het dan die groot verandering gebring? Het die tyd in die tronk hom daartoe gebring om nie meer te steel nie? Was dit die tragiese dood van sy ma wat gekeer het dat hy weer leuens vertel? Wat is dit wat 'n dief verander het in iemand wat jy kon vertrou met miljoene Rande? Hoe het dit gekom dat hy sy geboorteland, Duitsland, verlaat het om in Engeland te gaan woon?

Vind uit hoe die Here een jong man se lewe merkwaardig verander het van selfsug en inhaligheid, tot dapper en betroubaar; hoe sy hart verlos is van selfgerigtheid. George het die kinders van sy nuwe huis in sy hart opgeneem en die kinders van Bristol het in hom iemand gevind wat sou opkom vir hulle belange. Hulle het hom vertou en liefgehad. George was die kinders se held.

Charles Spurgeon was 'n eenvoudige plattelandse seun, wat as een van die mees gevierde predikers ooit, bekendheid verwerf het in Londen, Europa en die wêreld.
Toe hy in 'n sneeustorm vasgevang was, het hy by die agterste bank van 'n klein stowwerige, plattelandse kerkie ingesluip. Hy het nie 'n benul daarvan gehad dat, terwyl hy die yskoue temperatuur buite ontvlug het, hy voor die belangrikste besluit van sy hele lewe te staan sou kom nie.
'n Verrimpelde ou man het begin preek... Charles het 'n behoorlik vervelige diens verwag - maar met die woorde, 'Kyk op na Jesus en word gered!' het 'n koue, knorrige tiener begin besef dat die Here se Woord 'n mens totaal kan verander!
Die eenvoudige plattelandse knaap het 'n man geword wat met prinse en bedelaars omgegaan het. Hy het woorde gespreek wat die harte van rykes en armes aangeraak het. Sy faam het so ver gereik dat dit vertel word dat selfs Koningin Victoria een van sy dienste bygewoon het. Het die Koningin van Engeland na die Prins van die Predikers gaan luister? Charles het meer omgegee vir die Koning van die konings - Jesus Christus.
Christian Timothy George is 'n skrywer en prediker wat hou van kuns, reis en voetbal. Hy en sy vrou, Rebecca, woon in Birmingham, Alabama, VSA, waar hulle seminarium studente is by Beeson Divinity School. Christian bewonder Charles Spurgeon sy lewe lank.

Stoked! is an inspiring true story about courage, determination and the power of dreams. Chris Bertish was a skinny little kid from Cape Town when he started surfing with his brothers. Fiercely driven and constantly pushing his boundaries, Chris was not content with conquering 'ordinary' big waves. He wanted more: bigger waves, bigger swells, more adrenaline. What began as a personal quest to prove to himself that he was one of the best in the 'big-wave brotherhood' culminated a decade later with Chris being crowned South Africa's first Mavericks BigWave Champion. Competitors in the 2010 event were faced with the biggest and heaviest waves ever recorded in the history of the sport and Chris, on his own budget, on the back of a 40-hour plane journey and on borrowed equipment, outsmarted and outperformed the world's best-paid professional surfers. How did Chris achieve this feat? 'Nothing is impossible, unless you believe it to be' is just one of the philosophies he lives by. Out of his passion for big-wave surfing has grown a profound wisdom and an appreciation of a few simple truths, which he shares in Stoked!. With his infectious enthusiasm, Chris tells how he pulled off death-defying antics time and again, overcame overwhelming obstacles and fears, and parried every blow that fate dealt him, all without ever losing faith or focus on his dreams.
