Nicolaas (Seer) van Rensburg was a modern day Nostradamus. He became a legend during his lifetime and was one of the most remarkable and controversial charcters who ever lived in South Africa. Van Rensburg not only foretold the future of South Africa, but also that of England, Europe, America, Japan and Russia. He predicted World War 3 after the turn of the century. It is a chilling experience to read about his predictions of 'terrible electric rays' (laser beams) that will sow death and destruction and soak the earth in blood. He describes the events on the battlefields of the world in such detail as though he himself had been an eye-witness. Here are some of the prophecies he made from 1899 until his death in 1926:
* Outbreak of the Anglo-Boer War and that South Africa will lose that war
* The First World War, the 'Flu epidemic and the Second World War
* Dr. H.F. Verword, former Prime Minister, will be murdered
* The nuclear disaster at Chernobyl on April 26 1986
* The divorce and murder of an English noble woman in a 'car accident' and who would be mourned by the whole world
The release of Nelson Mandela by ex-President FW de Klerk
* South Africa will be governed by a black government
Japan's destruction by earthquakes, and that
* England will be struck by seven terrible plagues when World War 3 is at hand

The astounding prophecies in this book are of great importance, not only to South Africans, but also to the people of the Western world.

While riding his motorbike through Mali, on his way home from London to Johannesburg, Steve McGown was taken captive in Timbuktu by Al Qaeda. Life as he knew it, changed in that instant. Driven deep into the desert with two other prisoners, Steve, who had just qualified for his British passport before leaving on his trip home, was now a valuable
pawn in Al Qaeda's geo-political operations. With nothing to bargain with and everything to lose, for the next six years, Steve became reluctantly engaged in what he refers to as, “the greatest chess game of my life.”
Thousands of kilometers away in Johannesburg, the shock of his kidnapping hit his wife Cath and the rest of the McGown family. Working every option they could find, from established diplomatic protocols to the murky back channels of the kidnap game, they set to work on trying to free Steve.
As the months turned into years, Steve had to adapt or depression and despair would overwhelm him. With no control over his future and no end to his open-air incarceration in sight, he knew that he would have to go to extraordinary lengths to survive both his prison and his prisoners. His sole focus was to make it back home to his wife and family, so to raise his status among Al Qaeda, improve his quality of life in the desert sands and to give himself some form of structure and hope, Steve converted to Islam and accepted a new name, Lot.
Teaching himself French and Arabic, as the years passed and the prisoners and their captors moved from camp to camp to evade the Malian and French forces, Steve took it upon himself to get to know and understand Al Qaeda. To this day he holds the unenviable record of Al Qaeda's longest-held prisoner and while the captive-captor dynamic was always there, by virtue of the long years he spent with them Steve got to see what no Westerner has ever seen before. He lived in their world and came to understand where they came from and what led them to jihad. He saw boys grow into men, he watched as mujahedeen stuck up their hands for suicide missions and a ticket to heaven and saw the organisations success strategies and weaknesses, their victories and their losses.
Six Years With Al Qaeda is not just an incredible story of mental strength, physical endurance and the resilience of the human spirit, but also a unique, nuanced perspective on one of the world's most feared terrorist organisations. Not only did Steve McGown survive his ordeal, but in many respects, he came out of the desert both a changed man and a stronger, more positive human.

The day she flew in a glider for the first time, Rebecca Loncraine fell in love. Months of gruelling treatment for breast cancer meant she had lost touch with the world around her, but in that engineless plane, soaring 3,000 feet over the landscape of her childhood, with only the rising thermals to take her higher and the birds to lead the way, she felt ready to face life again. And so Rebecca flew, travelling from her home in the Black Mountains of Wales to New Zealand's Southern Alps and the Nepalese Himalayas as she chased her new-found passion: her need to soar with the birds, to push herself to the boundary of her own fear. Taking in the history of unpowered flight, and with extraordinary descriptions of flying in some of the world's most dangerous and dramatic locations, Skybound is a nature memoir with a unique perspective; it is about the land we know and the sky we know so little of, it is about memory and self-discovery. Rebecca became ill again just as she was finishing Skybound, and she died in September 2016. Though her death is tragic, it does not change what Skybound is: a book full of hope. Deeply moving, thrilling and euphoric, Skybound is for anyone who has ever looked up and longed to take flight. Shortlisted for the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Award 2018.

Frederik van Zyl Slabbert was a man on a mission, whether as an academic, opposition politician, democratic facilitator or businessman. When he famously led a delegation of leading Afrikaners to Dakar in 1987 to meet the exiled ANC, many saw it as a breakthrough moment, while others felt he had been taken in. And yet his reputation - for honesty, integrity, wit and courage - still towers above many of his contemporaries.
An academic turned politician, Slabbert brought unusual intellectual rigour to Parliament, transforming the upstart Progressive Federal Party into a force that could challenge the National Party. Disillusioned by South African society, he resigned in 1986 to explore democratic alternatives. Sidelined during the democratic transition, he continued to pursue a broad range of initiatives aimed at building democracy, empowering black South Africans and transforming the economy.

Grundlingh offers insights into this most unlikely politician, providing new perspectives on a figure who even today remains an enigma.

Slot van die dag: Gedagtes is die skrywer se mymeringe oor ouderdom en die einde van die lewe, saam met verspreide herinnerings van 'n algemene aard, om 'n ryk geskakeerde beeld te verskaf van 'n skrywerslewe van byna tagtig jaar. Die reeks outobiografiese boeke wat met 'n Duitser aan die Kaap, Merksteen en Die laaste Afrikaanse boek begin het, word hiermee afgesluit.
Dit is 'n baie persoonlike boek oor ouderdom, die skryfproses en selfbeskikking met kommentaar op oud word en wees, met inbegrip van praktiese wenke, en heelwat inligting oor die moontlike en waarskynlike einde van die lewe. Die element van afskeid en gelatenheid is deurlopend. Die ouderdom is teenswoordig die vernaamste onderwerp van sy oorpeinsing, en die vernaamste element in sy daagliks ervarings.
Die verwysings en aanhalings is treffend en spreek van iemand wat sy leeswêreld ook sy leefwêreld maak. Ten slotte verduidelik die skrywer sy bevrydende besluit oor selfdood.

Terug in die spaarkamer. Skok tree in. Bewerasie, naarheid. Die huis klink hol.
Ek hoor iemand huil. Tyd staan stil. Ek sit. Dreunende klanke en pyn.
Harde klappe teen die kamervenster laat my skrik.
“Esli, maak oop!” Hy stap verby my.
“So lyk 'n vrou wat met haar man kak soek,” sê hy.
Bert, die aantreklikste ou in haar matriekklas, soen Esli uit haar vel. Vir meer as veertig jaar deel hulle hul lewens, maak saam kinders groot en sien om na vriende en familie. Jaarliks vier hulle Kersfees in Kleinmond met geskenke en trifle en stappies langs die see met hul worshond. Maar hoekom val Bert se broer uit 'n boom voor Esli se ouerhuis? En watter donker geheim is onderliggend aan Bert se ma se vreemde gedrag en onfatsoenlike grappe? Wat dink kollegas van Esli se haarstyleksperimente en panda-oë? Verdien sy om in die spaarkamer te skuil omdat sy, volgens Bert, aand na aand die kos brand en die hond se pote laat nat word as dit reën? In So lyk 'n vrou... vertel Ilse Verster van Esli se heelwording en hoe sy, ná 'n leeftyd van mishandeling, in 'n rooi rok op die strand kon staan met een vuis in die lug en vry kon voel. Sy gee stem aan 'n stukkende vrou wat net wil hê die pyn moet stop. Sy deel wat dit verg om jou teen die muur op te trek, jou teen die samelewing te handhaaf en jouself te red.

Die boek beeld die komplekse aard van gesinsgeweld uit. en kan kan lesers help om gevaarligte in hul eie lewens raak te sien. Dit wys ook hoe om maatreëls van die Wet op Gesinsgeweld te gebruik en illustreer hoe sienings rondom geslagsgebaseerde geweld oor die laaste vyftig jaar verander het. Dit dra 'n boodskap van hoop, heelwording en genesing oor.

So lyk 'n vrou... is Ilse se eerste boek. Sy het eerstehandse ervaring van die gebeure wat sy beskryf.

Reynardt Hugo speel Dr Tertius Jonker in Binnelanders en was van 2011 tot 2019 lid van die Afrikaanse popgroep ADAM. Tog, agter al sy sukses, sangtoere, toekennings en die vele lofbetuigings is daar 'n diep gewonde en verlore siel. Nes duisende ander mans, het Reynardt jare lank gestoei om sy verwondheid met drank, dagga, vroue en pornografie te verdoesel. Sy oorlog was 'n soeke na betekenis en aanvaarding.
Soldaat vertel van 'n klein seuntjie en die verwarrende wêreld waarin hy grootgeword het. Hy praat eerlik en opreg oor die impak wat sy ouers se egskeiding op hom gehad het, en die invloed van drankmisbruik in hulle huis, en hoe hy dit alles as jong seun ervaar het en daarvan moes sin maak. Hy praat openlik oor sy swakheid vir vroue en die gevolge van sy dade.

Vandag is Reynardt Hugo 'n suksesvolle jong man wat 'n groot impak maak. Die pad was lank en rof en hy moes vele uitdagings oorkom, maar vandag is sy lewe 'n ware getuienis van wat God kan doen met iemand wat op moedverloor se vlakte sit, en hoe God 'n storie van verwoesting in 'n storie van hoop kan verander.

Reynardt se verhaal is boeiend. Dit bevat al die elemente van tragedie, intrige, neerlaag en oorwinning, maar ook die heel belangrikste bestanddeel: die krag van die evangelie van Jesus Christus.

Growing up in the Canadian Rockies, the mountains have always been home for Jenny Tough. Travelling the world, she's always discovered commonalities with mountains - and mountain people. Her major project is to run solo and unsupported across a mountain range on every continent where indigenous mountain people live isolated from the outside, urban world. Running solo and unsupported comes with obvious logistical as well as physical challenges, but running is also a common language - all people around the world do it - and it has always helped build connections across barriers of language and nationality. SOLO is the account of one woman's mission to run solo and unsupported across mountain ranges on six continents - overcoming obstacles, conquering fears and finding the joy in achieving her goals absolutely alone.

Why don't white people understand that Converse tekkies are not just cool but a political statement to people of colour? Why is it that South Africans of colour don't really 'write what we like'? What's the deal with people pretending to be 'woke'? Is Islam really as anti-feminist as is claimed? What does it feel like to be a brown woman in a white media corporation? And what life lessons can we learn from Bollywood movies?

In Sorry, Not Sorry, Haji Mohamed Dawjee explores the often maddening experience of moving through post-Apartheid South Africa as a woman of colour. In characteristically candid style, Dawjee pulls no punches when examining the social landscape: from arguing why she'd rather deal with an open racist than some liberal white people, to drawing on her own experience to convince readers that joining a cult is never a good idea.

In the provocative voice that has made Dawjee one of our country's most talked-about columnists, she offers observations laced throughout with an acerbic wit. Sorry, Not Sorry will make readers laugh, wince, nod, introspect and argue.

Hierdie boek is die voltooiing van Elsa Joubert se outobiografiese drieluik wat ingelei is deur 'n Wonderlike geweld (2005) en Reisiger (2009). Dit fokus hoofsaaklik op die skrywer se latere jare, in die aftreeoord in Kaapstad waar sy nou al geruime tyd woon, maar haar belewenis van die hede en onlangse verlede word onlosmaaklik vervleg met herinneringe aan veel verder terug, alles geteken met die kenmerkende woordvaardigheid van een van Afrikaans se mees gevierde skrywers.

For many fans, David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust era remains the most extraordinarily creative period in his career. As a member of Bowie's legendary band at the time - The Spiders From Mars - Woody Woodmansey played drums on four seminal albums: The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars and Aladdin Sane. Woody's memoir, which he started work on in 2014, focuses on this key period and brings it to glorious life. With the confidence of youth, Woody always thought he'd be in a famous band but the nineteen-year-old rocker from Hull never expected to be thrust into London's burgeoning glam rock scene, and also into a bottle-green velvet suit and girl's shoes. Playing with Bowie took him on an eye-opening and transformative journey. In Spider From Mars he writes candidly about the characters who surrounded Bowie, recalling the album sessions as well as behind-the-scenes moments with one of the world's most iconic singers. The result is an insightful, funny, poignant memoir that lovingly evokes a seminal moment in music history and pays tribute to one of the most outstanding and innovative talents of our time.

An exciting Cold War story about a KGB double agent, by one of Britain's greatest historians and the ultimate gift for anyone who loves a good spy thriller! On a warm July evening in 1985, a middle-aged man stood on the pavement of a busy avenue in the heart of Moscow, holding a plastic carrier bag. In his grey suit and tie, he looked like any other Soviet citizen. The bag alone was mildly conspicuous, printed with the red logo of Safeway, the British supermarket. The man was a spy. A senior KGB officer, for more than a decade he had supplied his British spymasters with a stream of priceless secrets from deep within the Soviet intelligence machine. No spy had done more to damage the KGB. The Safeway bag was a signal: to activate his escape plan to be smuggled out of Soviet Russia. So began one of the boldest and most extraordinary episodes in the history of spying. Ben Macintyre reveals a tale of espionage, betrayal and raw courage that changed the course of the Cold War forever.

An icon of the last fifty years, Stephen Hawking seems to encapsulate genius: not since Albert Einstein has a scientific figure held such a position in popular consciousness. In this enthralling memoir, writer and physicist Leonard Mlodinow tells the story of his friend and their friendship, offering an intimate account of this giant of science.
The two met in 2003 when Stephen asked Leonard if he would consider writing a book with him, the follow up to the bestselling A Brief History of Time. As they spent years working on a second book, The Grand Design, they forged a deep connection and Leonard gained a much better understanding of Stephen's daily life and struggles - as well as his compassion and good humour. Together they obsessed over the perfect sentence, debated the physics, and occasionally punted on Cambridge's waterways with champagne and strawberries. In time, Leonard was able to finish Stephen's jokes, chide his sporadic mischief, and learn how the hardships of his illness helped forge that unique perspective on the universe.
