"One of the greatest and most powerful gift in life is the gift of knowledge. The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge." (Abbey Beathan)
This is a summary of Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah. With a bold mixture of humor and crude anecdotes, Born a Crime is a biography like nothing you have heard before.
Believe me when I say this: Trevor Noah is not a boring storyteller. He doesn't follow a traditional way of telling stories of his life like other biographers might. His comedian side bursts out of his soul and lands in his writing, delivering a unique touch between crude and funny. Even in the most traumatic stories of his childhood, he manages to infuse a sense of humor.
"We tell people to follow their dreams, but you can only dream of what you can imagine, and, depending on where you come from, your imagination can be quite limited." (Trevor Noah)
A book highly recommended to be enjoyed in audio due to Trevor's chameleon-like ability to imitate dialects and accents to perfection, where he fluently shifts from language to language, showing his proficiency but also entertaining us while he tells us a story. Born a Crime is a really personal book where it will be as if you're having a conversation with Trevor Noah, as he pours his heart out about his troubling childhood. Definitely a book that will leave you content.
In Born a Crime, you'll feel Trevor Noah's comedian side, but you'll also see him as a human being.
P.S: Born a Crime is a journey through the turbulent life of Trevor Noah.
P.P.S: It was Albert Einstein who famously said that once you stop learning, you start dying. It was Bill Gates who said that he would want the ability to read faster if he could only have one superpower in this world.
