Recommended. Good because it tells a story about how people live in the new democratic South Africa. The book gives the writer's personal story of life under apartheid and the current situation - there is a new rich and people disadvantaged because everything must be shared between all 45 million people leaving less for the white minority. The book explains why there are old white men selling newspapers at traffic lights and dumper diving - and evokes a beautiful picture of a wonderful country. He explains what goes on behind an extraordinary social experiment - the peaceful transfer of power from an elite minority to the African masses. And what's in the thinking of whites who cannot understand their fall from power and privilege.
