Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has achieved in seven years what few accomplish in a lifetime. She has been praised and vilified in equal measures during her time in office, often putting her at centre stage.
Speaking in Cape Town last year, Madonsela said that her role as Public Protector is akin to that of the Venda traditional spiritual female leader, the Makhadzi, who whispers truth to the king or the ruler. A ruler ignores the Makhadzi at his peril. During the speech, Madonsela joked that when the sounds of exchanges between the ruler and the Makhadzi grow loud, that is when the whispering has failed.
No Longer Whispering to Power is about Madonsela's tenure as Public Protector, during which the whisper grew into a cry. It is the story of South Africa's people's attempt to hold power to account through the Office of the Public Protector. This important book stands as a record of the crucial work Madonsela has done, always acting without fear or favour.

'With Steve Jobs's passing, Apple can survive, but it won't prevail.' - Forbes, October 2011

In 2011, Tim Cook took on an impossible task - following in the footsteps of one of history's greatest business visionaries, Steve Jobs. Facing worldwide scrutiny, Cook (who was often described as shy, unassuming and unimaginative) defied all expectations. Under Cook's leadership Apple has soared: its stock has nearly tripled to become the world's first trillion-dollar company. From the massive growth of the iPhone to new victories like the Apple Watch, Cook is leading Apple to a new era of success.

But he's also spearheaded a cultural revolution within the company. Since becoming CEO, Cook has introduced a new style of management that emphasizes kindness, collaboration and honesty, and has quietly pushed Apple to support sexual and racial equal rights and invest heavily in renewable energy.

Drawing on authorized access with several Apple insiders, Kahney, the world's leading reporter on Apple, tells the inspiring story of how one man attempted to replace the irreplaceable and succeeded better than anyone thought possible.

Leander Kahney has covered Apple for more than a dozen years and has written four popular books about Apple and the culture of its followers, including Inside Steve's Brain and Jony Ive. The former news editor for Wired.com, he is currently the editor and publisher of CultofMac.com. He lives in San Francisco.

On 5 February 2014, world-renowned scientist Tim Noakes fired off a tweet allegedly dispensing dietary advice to a young mother into a highly volatile media space; the fallout threatened to destroy his career. This is the untold backstory.

Veteran journalist and writer Daryl Ilbury unveils, layer by layer, a combustible mix of scientific ignorance, academic jealousy, the collapse of media ethics, and the interests of a world-renowned scientist in highlighting the intricacies of human nutrition and exposing those he believes have vested interests in regulating it.

Featuring interviews with people who have worked closely with Noakes, including former Springbok coach Jake White and polar swimmer Lewis Gordon Pugh, as well as award-winning journalists and fellow scientists and academics, some of whom now consider Noakes dangerous and out of control, this book is bound to be as controversial as the man himself.

Vusi Mavimbela is one of South Africa's foremost political adventurers and wanderers. A writer of singular verve, humour and descriptive power, his memoir provides penetrating pen portraits of many well-known South African and African political actors, including martyred uMkhonto weSizwe guerilla Solomon Mahlangu, Nigeria's Olusegun Obasanjo, Robert Mugabe and a galaxy of senior ANC exiles such as Joe Slovo, Chris Hani, Josiah Jele, Joel Netshitenzhe and Mac Maharaj.
He touches on and illuminates the personalities of many influential men and women in South Africa's early democratic governments. But the heart of Mavimbela's narrative lies in his unique experience of working as a top administrator and counsellor in the offices of Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma. In the most intimate detail, he describes the emergence and escalation of the conflict between those two flawed principals. He captures the drama of their struggle and its destructive fallout for the new South African state.

Mavimbela offers a potent warning: loyalty and long service to a political party is no guarantee of wise and effective leadership.

This collection comprises the stories of women who grew up in two countries, Rhodesia, prior to Independence and Zimbabwe post-1980.
The contributors reflect on their childhoods with refreshing candour. Many of their memories retain the crystalline clarity of childhood and thus provide insights into worlds that have often remained unexplored.
Behind these women stood dedicated, hard-working parents — often teachers, nurses or businessmen and women - determined that their children succeed through education.
The commitment of this emerging middle class provides us with a tragic reminder of the negative obduracy of the Smith regime which consistently denied such citizens the vote. Nonetheless, we are repeatedly reminded not of the dark side of an essentially racist regime, but of the joys of a secure childhood when parents and communities were steadfast in their values, and families consistently offered stability and security.
Few will read Township Girls:The Cross-Over Generation without feeling that they have learned something new and been invited into a different world.
Passionately written encounters of the memories of adult women as they dig deep into the recesses of their memories to weave vivid unforgettable stories of their fears, joys, triumphs and adventures of fitting into two different cultures in pre-independent Zimbabwe.

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.'

Salma Said Ali was brought up as a devout Muslim on the island of Zanzibar. Following the failure of her first marriage she re-married and moved with her husband to England. Here, through the prophetic ministry of one man, accompanied by various dreams and other heavenly signs, she became convinced that Jesus (Issa) is in fact the divine Son of God - God made human. After several years as a secret believer she eventually confessed this to her family, facing the rejection that she knew would come but bearing it for the sake of her new faith. Transit to Heaven is the fascinating account of Salma's journey to Christianity and offers insight into the life of a Muslim woman honestly seeking God.

Hierdie is ʼn fassinerende verslag van die lewe in maksimumsekuriteit-gevangenisse, met ʼn vars invalshoek: China was hondemeester, aan die voorfront tydens tronkgevegte. Gewapen slegs met ʼn knuppel en sy hond moes hy messtekers en oproeriges afweer. Hy is ʼn mensch, ʼn ongeslypte diamant met hart en ondernemingsgees. Hy herinner aan Bennie Griessel: hy rook en drink straf, sy huwelik is op die rotse, hy sukkel om gevoelens te wys, maar oor ʼn hond wat doodgaan, grens hy. Sy eerste pos, toe hy net 16 was, was op Robbeneiland, waar hy ʼn lang, breedgeskouerde gevangene met ʼn vriendelike gesig gesien skerm het. Hy was self ʼn bokser en kon sien die man het ʼn besonderse tegniek, dat hy lig op sy voete soos ʼn weltergewig was. Die bokser was Nelson Mandela. Saans het Mandela deur sy tralies vir die seun hardgekookte eiers wat hy afgeskil het, aangegee, dan eet hulle saam en gesels. Mandela het hom altyd aaangepor om verder te gaan leer.

OOR DIE OUTEUR
Jakobus Daniël (China) Mouton is 23 Maart 1957 gebore. Hy was van 1974 tot 2013 ʼn hondemeester in die Departement van Korrektiewe dienste, waar hy ook aan die berede afdeling verbonde was. Hy het as spoorsnyer gewerk en sekuriteit verskaf by maksimumsekuriteit-gevangenisse. Hy spesialiseer later in narkotika en springstof. Hy was van 2010 afdelingshoof by Brandvlei-gevangenis. Hy tree in 2013 af en woon in Laingsburg.

Voordat die veldseun Piet Schoeman wildbewaarder geword het, het hy gedink dat die lewe van 'n wildbewaarder die ene aksie sal wees. Toe hy aangestel word as hoofwildbewaarder van die Etosha-wildtuin in die destydse Suidwes-Afrika, was dit net die plek waar hy sy onbedwingbare avontuurlus kon uitleef.

Die gelyk wêreld van gras en lae bossies, met orals troppies naderende wild, het vir hom 'n oneindige bekoring ingehou. Wanneer die oop ruimtes roep, kon hy nooit teruggehou word nie.
