Nisi mortuos piscem fluxum. Only dead fish go with the flow.
If you attended the 2016 TAPPSA conference and enjoyed Steuart Pennington’s informative and entertaining presentation on the paradox that is South Africa, then you will remember that he brought along a few copies of his book – ‘South Africa @20 for Better or for Worse?’.
The book is Steuart’s 10th in the Good News series and provides thought provoking views and insightful perspectives to tough questions and real concerns about South Africa.
“Our narrative is bedeviled with conventional wisdom madness. Rumours, half-truths and sensationalist reporting are very much part of the way we talk. In this new book, the tenth in the Good News series, we have selected 25 provocative topics to explore. We approached 42 prominent South Africans to write rebuffs. These include Pali Lehohla (Statistician General), John Robbie (702), Rowan Philp (award-winning journalist), Thulani Nzima (CEO, SA Tourism), Arno van der Merwe (Mercedes-Benz SA) and many more. They tell us the truth, show us the facts and expose the myths. We have provided hundreds of “fast facts”, infographics and tables on every topic. The book is a pleasure to read and beautifully illustrated.”
Steuart is making the book available at R175 (incl VAT, excl postage). Normal selling price R250. Now that’s good news.
