The month of August saw the release of two titles every matriculant or graduate should read before making their way in the world.
Welcome to the Real World: A Young Person’s Guide to Figuring it All Out is the go-to-guide for anyone leaving home for the first time. Whether you’re taking a gap year or living on your own for the first time, this book includes all the advice you need to help you stand on your own two feet. With helpful chapters on travelling, managing your money, looking after your health and the hard facts about drugs, just having a copy handy will make you feel more confident about handling unfamiliar situations with poise and confidence.
Written by Alex Ferguson-Williams and Lisa Kretschmer – two fun-loving girls who have travelled, worked and lived in some extraordinary circumstances. Now they’re sharing the wisdom they’ve gained in an entertaining, easy to read book that’s packed with practical advice.
Another must-have book is Shelagh Foster’s Your First Year of Work: A Survival Guide. So many young matriculants and graduates enter the market place poorly prepared to face the challenges of the working world.
Shelagh’s book will guide you through the process from begining to end. From structuring a CV that will make you stand out and tips to get you through the interview, to advice on how to dress and behave appropriately and everything you need to know about decoding office culture.
Shelagh is a communications expert and will show you how to use written, verbal and non-verbal communication skills to shine in your career.
Any young person armed with these two guides is bound to make a successful of their lives (and make their parents proud!).

We’re so excited to be featuring Rat Roads by Jacques Pauw this week. After all, we’re all about opening people’s eyes to the world through books.
Rat Roads chronicles the remarkable journey of Kennedy Gihana, a young Tutsi man who survived the genocide in Rwanda, committed horrifying atrocities in Africa’s bloodiest civil war and walked thousands of kilometres to South Africa, where he slept in parks, lived on the streets and worked as a low-paid security guard until he had saved enough money to enrol for a law degree.
In 2011 he took the podium at the University of Pretoria to receive a master’s degree in law.
Rat Roads combines many strands of what life in Africa, and South Africa, is like for a large proportion of people. Besides being the chronicle of one man’s unforgettable journey, it addresses topical issues such as civil conflict, xenophobia and the plight of refugees, and will open people’s eyes to the reality of life on the streets.
It is a story of horror and adversity, and of triumph and hope.

“A story that weaves together religion, philosophy and common sense like classic fables that readers may remember from childhood and reminds people how to try to live each day.”
Mitch Albom the inspirational author of Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven returns with his most heartfelt novel yet, The Time Keeper.
Man alone measure time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralysing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.
In this stunning new novel, the inventor of the world’s first clock is punished for trying to measure time. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more years for themselves. At last, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time. He returns to our world – now dominated by the obsession with time he so innocently began – and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever.
To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so.
Gripping, simply told and filled with deep human truth, this unforgettable story will inspire readers everywhere to reconsider their own notions of time, how they spend it and how precious it truly is.
