The Keys to Persuasion – Master the Art of Persuasion Today

Posted on 12 April 2013 by Olivia Colville

Acquire the power to change someone’s mind…Keys to Persuasion

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.

Posted on 29 January 2013 by Phillipa Mitchell

Rat Roads Banner

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.

In this extraordinary book, celebrated journalist Jacques Pauw gives a human face to some of the most tumultuous events in Rat Roadsrecent African history.

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.


Jacques PaJacques Pauwuw is one of South Africa’s most decorated journalists and television documentary filmmakers. He was a founder member of the anti-apartheid Afrikaans newspaper Vrye Weekblad, where he exposed the existence of police death squads. Thereafter he worked for some of the country’s most esteemed publications before becoming a filmmaker.

He has travelled throughout Africa and has produced documentaries on wars and conflicts in Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sierra Leone, Algeria, Sudan and Liberia.

He has won awards in South Africa, the United States, Africa and Europe, including the CNN African Journalist of the Year Award, the Award for Outstanding International Investigative Reporting, the Young African Leadership Award and the Nat Nakasa award for bravery and integrity in journalism. He is the author of four books: three of non-fiction and one of fiction.

Just Published – Killing for Profit: Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn Trade by Julian Rademeyer

Posted on 20 November 2012 by Phillipa Mitchell



Just Published – Killing for Profit: Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn Trade by Julian Rademeyer

A terrifying true story of greed, corruption, depravity and ruthless criminal enterprise…

On the black markets of Southeast Asia, rhino horn is worth more than gold, cocaine and heroin. This is the story of a more than two-year-long investigation into a dangerous criminal underworld where merciless syndicates will stop at nothing to attain their prize.
It is a tale of greed, folly and corruption, and of an increasingly desperate battle to save rhinos – which have existed for more than 50 million years.
Killing for Profit is a meticulous, devastating and revelatory account of one of the world’s most secretive trades. It exposes poachers, scoundrels, gangsters, conmen, mercenaries, killers, gun-runners, diplomats, government officials and kingpins behind the slaughter. And it follows the bloody trail from the frontlines of the rhino wars to the lair of a wildlife-trafficking kingpin on the banks of the Mekong River in Laos …Now available from Red Pepper Books – Click here to order your copy

Just Published! “The Time Keeper” the brand new book from the author of “Tuesdays with Morrie”, Mitch Albom

Posted on 02 October 2012 by Phillipa Mitchell

 “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.”
- Bookreporter.com

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.

A Bantu in My Bathroom by Eusebius McKaiser is now available

Posted on 17 September 2012 by Phillipa Mitchell

A Bantu in My Bathroom by Eusebius McKaiser has just been published and asks the following questions:

Why are South Africans so uncomfortable with deep disagreement?

Why do we lash out at people with opposing views without taking the time to engage logically with their arguments?

Eusebius McKaiser is on a mission to raise the level of debate in South Africa. He provokes us from our comfort zones and lures us into the debates that shape our opinions and our society. With surprising candour and intensely personal examples, McKaiser examines our deepest-felt prejudices and ingrained assumptions. Don’t expect to read this book and escape with your defences intact.

Immensely readable and completely engaging, McKaiser tackles deeply South African questions of race, sexuality and culture, including:

  • Can blacks be racist?
  • Why is our society so violent?
  • Is it morally okay to be prejudiced against skinny lovers?
  • Why is the presidential penis so problematic?
  • Is unconditional love ever a good thing?
  • Is it necessary to search for a national identity?

Eusebius McKaiser is a well-known social and political commentator who is determined to raise the level of debate in South Africa while simultaneously making sure that the debates are accessible to everyone. With no tolerance for sloppy logic or emotion-disguised-as-logic Eusebius tackles the thorny issues of race, sexuality, and culture in South Africa. His writing is relentlessly honest, at times very personal and tackles issues with rigorous logic. Don’t expect political correctness from this writer! McKaiser represents a new generation of South African commentator – at times humorous, willing to show his humanity and completely engaged in what makes South Africa tick.

•Eusebius is the new host of Talk at 9 on Talk Radio 702 and 567 Cape Talk

•McKaiser’s coulmns are published in various newspapers, including the New York Times

•These are all-new essays – not previously published

•A foreword by Jonathan Jansen

How Rich People Think, by Steve Siebold

Posted on 17 September 2012 by Phillipa Mitchell

In How the Rich Think, the 31st book in our series of books to read before 2012 is out, Steve Siebold, who recently visited South Africa to promote his book, will show you how to think like a millionaire, and in turn become one. He completely debunks what he refers to as “Middle Class” thinking and replaces each thought with a new type of thinking – that of “World Class” thinking.

Take a look at some of his theories below and see which side you resonate with. If you’re on the side of the Middle Class and you want to live a fulfilled life without ever worrying about money again, then it’s time to start thinking with a World Class mentality…

Middle Class waits for their ship to come inWorld Class builds their own ship

Middle Class believes money is about statusWorld Class believes money is about freedom

Middle Class is waiting to be rescued from financial mediocrityWorld Class knows no one is coming to the rescue

Middle Class has a lottery mentalityWorld class has an action mentality

Middle Class sees money as a finite resourceWorld Class sees money as an infinite resource

Middle Class focuses on pleasurable activitiesWorld Class focuses on money making activities

Middle Class thinks about spendingWorld Class thinks about investing

Middle Class worries about running out of moneyWorld Class thinks about how to make money

Middle class longs for the good old daysWorld Class dreams of the future

Middle Class dreams of having enough money to retireWorld Class dreams of having enough money to impact the world

Middle Class experiences good fortune and can’t believe itWorld Class experiences good fortune and wonder what took so long

We all deserve to be wealthy beyond our wildest dreams. We’re only going to get there if we start thinking wealthy thoughts and changing our attitude towards wealth and money.

If you’ve ever dreamed of living a life most people only see in movies, study this book like a scientist.
