An honest and reflective book on pieces of Trevor Noah's youth. You can tell there's more stories than there are written, but he beautifully tells it nonetheless.

Fantastic. One of the most interesting and varied life stories told in an incredibly funny and lighthearted way. The topics covered and knowledge gained from this book are of such diverse nature that I believe anyone can learn something from this book. The audible version performed by Trevor Noah himself would be my recommendation as it adds such colour to the narrative.

This is the story of Trevor Noah's life before fame and he narrates it wonderfully. But it is also an explanation of apartheid and a brief history of race in South Africa. I really enjoyed this. It felt like a quick read and he manages to get the message of how messed up the whole system was while still maintaining the wit he is best know for. There are moments in this book that did shock me and there are moments that made me laugh, sometimes even about things that are no laughing matter. I found this book to be quite educational and informative in a way that was serious and lighthearted in just the right ways to make it memorable.
