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!).

Why is it so important for us to acquire the skill of persuasion? The answer is simple: every day of our lives, we need to persuade someone of something, whether in the workplace or in our personal lives. Whether you are convincing a colleague to buy into a new initiative, pitching an important deal to a client or trying to convince your five-year-old to go to bed, you are persuading someone of something. And although we all persuade in one way or another, very few of us excel at it.
This book reveals the most effective keys – and the one golden key – that can turn you into a master persuader who can influence and change the minds of others. It explores the psychological bases and reasons why the keys work and contains many fun and effective examples of how to use them.
Based on well-documented research, The Keys to Persuasion is a fascinating and highly practical book that makes a difficult task and a complex subject concrete, accessible, lively and amusing.

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.
