NOW A MAJOR SERIES 'GENIUS' ON NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, PRODUCED BY RON HOWARD AND STARRING GEOFFREY RUSH Einstein is the great icon of our age: the kindly refugee from oppression whose wild halo of hair, twinkling eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius. He was a rebel and nonconformist from boyhood days. His character, creativity and imagination were related, and they drove both his life and his science. In this marvellously clear and accessible narrative, Walter Isaacson explains how his mind worked and the mysteries of the universe that he discovered. Einstein's success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marvelling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a worldview based on respect for free spirits and free individuals. All of which helped make Einstein into a rebel but with a reverence for the harmony of nature, one with just the right blend of imagination and wisdom to transform our understanding of the universe. This new biography, the first since all of Einstein's papers have become available, is the fullest picture yet of one of the key figures of the twentieth century. This is the first full biography of Albert Einstein since all of his papers have become available a fully realised portrait of this extraordinary human being, and great genius.

Anton Müller is in 1962 as driejarige met 'n ernstige graad van outisme gediagnoseer en as “onopvoedbaar” geklassifiseer. Hy sou waarskynlik in 'n inrigting geplaas moes word.
Sy ma het egter besluit dat Anton sy plek in die samelewing met waardigheid moes volstaan. Hy is in die “spesialeklas” van die plaaslike laerskool geplaas, waar sy lewensreis 'n verrassende koers ingeslaan het.
'n Groepie kinders het hom omarm - met Anton wat op sy beurt hulle lewens verryk het met sy unieke talente en sin vir humor. Drie jaar gelede het hy begin om sy herinneringe van die afgelope ses dekades neer te skryf.
Sy teks word aangevul met vertellings deur vriende, familielede en onderwysers. Enersyds gee dit 'n blik op hoe iemand met outisme die “normale” wêreld ervaar; andersyds gee dit vir die buitestander 'n kykie na die intense afgeslotenheid waarbinne 'n outistiese mens leef.

Anton se verhaal is enig in sysoort - pynlikeerlik, maar ontroerendmooi. Ditmaak die deur op 'n skrefieoop opdie kleurrykebinnelewe van iemand metoutisme. Sy merkwaardigestorieverdien omgelees engedeelte word. - CORRIE MÜLLER (broer)

This unauthorised biography offers exclusive new information and first-hand interviews into the childhood that shaped the richest man on earth.
From humble beginnings as an awkward boy from Pretoria, who loved comics and science fiction books, to the influence of his mother and the complex relationship with his father, Musk's early years were crucial in shaping his stellar ambitions. Journalist and author Michael Vlismas traces his remarkable life, from his early years in America and the development of his entrepreneurial vision and philosophy to the billionaire, who has to turn science fiction into reality with grand plans of inhabiting Mars and saving planet Earth. Thoroughly researched, this engaging book dispels several myths and presents other sides to the controversy surrounding Musk's father.

Vlismas attended the same school as Musk and has an intimate knowledge of the environment that shaped him. This is the story of a man driven to preserve the optimism he sees in humanity and to find a future for mankind “out there among the stars”.

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.

So what if it's true that Black women are mad as hell? They have the right to be. In the Black feminist tradition of Audre Lorde, Brittney Cooper reminds us that anger is a powerful source of energy that can give us the strength to keep on fighting. Far too often, Black women's anger has been caricatured into an ugly and destructive force that threatens the civility and social fabric of American democracy. But Cooper shows us that there is more to the story than that. Black women's eloquent rage is what makes Serena Williams such a powerful tennis player. It's what makes Beyoncé's girl power anthems resonate so hard. It's what makes Michelle Obama an icon. Eloquent rage keeps us all honest and accountable. It reminds women that they don't have to settle for less. When Cooper learned of her grandmother's eloquent rage about love, sex, and marriage in an epic and hilarious front-porch confrontation, her life was changed. And it took another intervention, this time staged by one of her homegirls, to turn Brittney into the fierce feminist she is today. In Brittney Cooper's world, neither mean girls nor fuckboys ever win. But homegirls emerge as heroes. This book argues that ultimately feminism, friendship, and faith in one's own superpowers are all we really need to turn things right side up again.

In 2021, Emma Raducanu shocked and charmed the tennis world as she raced to the US Open title with a smile on her face. But how did a little-known 18-year-old from Kent become the first ever qualifier to win a Major? Now Mike Dickson, who as Tennis Correspondent of the Daily Mail was one of the few journalists present in New York to see her lift the trophy, reveals what it took to become Britain's first woman Grand Slam champion since Virginia Wade in 1977. Drawing on interviews with key figures in Raducanu's development, he has written a fascinating account of a remarkable journey. From her early days falling in love with the game as a young girl in Bromley and the years of hard work and dedication that followed, he traces the ups and downs of a junior career that took her to the furthest reaches of the international circuit.

'Mabegzo's place in my life is an uncomfortable space. The hypocrisy of my feelings for him has mauled my emotions for many years. I would think of him and my heart would swell with warmth, longing and regret and, immediately, disgust at myself for feeling this way. This would be followed by making excuses for myself: I was a little girl, I did not know, I was mourning my father and perhaps responded to the first male who showed me any kindness and warmth.'

When Redi Tlhabi is eleven years old, two years after her father's death, she meets the handsome, charming and smooth, Mabegzo. A rumoured gangster, murderer and rapist, he is a veritable 'jack-roller' of the neighbourhood. Against her family's wishes, she develops a strong connection to him. Redi herself doesn't understand why she is drawn to Mabegzo and why, at eleven, she feels a brokenness that only Mabegzo can fix.

As a boy, James Rebanks's grandfather taught him to work the land the old way. Their family farm in the Lake District hills was part of an ancient agricultural landscape: a patchwork of crops and meadows, of pastures grazed with livestock, and hedgerows teeming with wildlife. And yet, by the time James inherited the farm, it was barely recognisable. The men and women had vanished from the fields; the old stone barns had crumbled; the skies had emptied of birds and their wind-blown song. English Pastoral is the story of an inheritance: one that affects us all. It tells of how rural landscapes around the world were brought close to collapse, and the age-old rhythms of work, weather, community and wild things were lost. And yet this elegy from the northern fells is also a song of hope: of how, guided by the past, one farmer began to salvage a tiny corner of England that was now his, doing his best to restore the life that had vanished and to leave a legacy for the future. This is a book about what it means to have love and pride in a place, and how, against all the odds, it may still be possible to build a new pastoral: not a utopia, but somewhere decent for us all.

Johannes Bakkes is die geliefde skrywer van andersoortige reisverhale soos Ons is moertoe en Norrevok. Hierdie boek is meer persoonlik; hier skryf hy homself oop. Die subtitel is Reis na binne, die -ste -ste plek - hy is altyd op soek na die koudste, warmste, hoogste, droogste plek om te besoek. Hier word humoristiese vertellings oor sy reise afgewissel met sy pa se wolhaarstories en lewendige geskiedenisvertellings. Hy en sy seun vind aanklank tydens nog 'n onbesonne reis. Sy liefde vir sy familie is tasbaar. Gerrit Rautenbach noem die manuskrip “sy beste skryfwerk nog” en “blootstellend anders” Bakkes lê homself bloot in sy weerloosheid, vrees en krankheid. Hy wys wie hy was in die ou bedeling en hoe hy probeer hand bysit in die nuwe bedeling, wat hy nie gekies het nie. Dis 'n dapper, aangrypende reis vol humor en deernis.
