The issue of tribe and language in this multilingual land could have had more detail. That said, there are many South Africans who don't know some of the wisdom in these pages.
Worth reading before you go.

I just wished that the book was a little bit more up to date. For example, it still talks about all the anticipation for the soccer world cup.
Got some reliable info about South Africa.
