I could not put this book down! Loved every bit of it. Reveals Former President Thabo Mbeki in new light. Very well written.

Not for nothing did the Times Literary Supplement call this "the finest piece of non-fiction to come out of South Africa since the end of apartheid." Whether you already know a lot about South Africa, or nothing at all, you'll learn a tremendous amount from Gevisser about the country's history, politics and people, and especially about Thabo Mbeki, the complex, controversial and fascinating leader who succeeded Nelson Mandela as South Africa's president.
