An Affair to Forget
An Affair to Forget is the true story of how the author found out about her husband's affair, her reaction to it, and how she eventually managed to find peace and acceptance. Although it is an account of her personal journey, many can identify with her experience: the disbelief and anger felt at the moment she discovers the message on her husband's cellphone; the crazy and obsessed snooping through his private papers and personal belongings; the anger, hurt and humiliation at being the party betrayed; the deep mourning of a lost love; and, finally, through a process of painful self-discovery and self-analysis, the realisation that it had all been for the best, that she is now stronger than ever.An Affair to Forget is a brutally honest and open account of an affair, but although it is primarily one woman's story, it also uncovers a universal theme: How do you cope when this happens to you? What is your reaction, and how do you get over it? Can you get over it? The author interviews several people whose lives were affected by affairs, and in the painful, often disturbing process finds the way to her own spiritual renewal. In addition, psychologists give interesting professional advice and a private investigator reveals some surprising information.This is not a book that accuses or judges but a sincere attempt to find out why people hurt those they love. Ultimately, it is an uplifting and spiritual book that will resonate with the thousands of people who have been touched, one way or another, by an affair to forget.

Max du Preez has one hell of a story to tell. In his career as a renegade reporter, he's survived three dismissals, seven libel suits, thirteen criminal cases, four aeroplane crashes, a bombing, two assassination attempts and was a regular on right-wing hit lists. He was in Soweto on 16 June 1976, witnessed the debauched parties of apartheid cabinet ministers, and stepped over dead bodies in a bombed Angolan village. He looked into apartheid killer Dirk Coetzee's eyes and published his story of police death squads, and when he visited Vlakplaas himself, he was lucky to get out alive.Max is best known as founder and editor of the Afrikaans newspaper Vrye Weekblad, and for his weekly television report on the Truth Commission and the programme Special Assignment. His story takes you on a remarkable journey, from the contradictions of history to the triumphs and troubles of the present, from the halls of parliament to the desert of Namibia, from burning townships to the headquarters of covert operations. You'll meet generals and guerrillas, presidents and hit men. And its all reported with the straight-shooting, uncompromising, outspoken frankness that has won him admiration and got him into trouble with the new government as well as the old.Pale Native is a story filled with drama, about the risks of investigative journalism in the front line. It's controversial, because Max, as always, is not afraid to expose what others want hidden from view. It's insightful, giving a fascinating analysis of southern African politics from a skilled reporter who has seen it first hand.

Marius Barnard is best known as a member of the pioneering medical team that performed the world's first human heart transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital in 1967, with his brother Chris. But his achievements extended into other spheres. He was an active anti-apartheid campaigner and MP for the Progressive Federal Party, he worked to improve cardiac surgery standards behind the Iron Curtain and globally, and he played a leading role in the creation of critical illness insurance – his invention, and one that has directly benefited the sick around the world. From humble beginnings as the son of missionary parents in the dusty Karoo town of Beaufort West to his position as one of the world's leading cardiac surgeons, Marius Barnard's story is a fascinating and remarkable chronicle of personal determination and courage. It is one of few first-hand accounts of the inaugural human heart transplant and its far-reaching repercussions, both in the world of medicine and in the private lives of its pioneers. In this sincere and deeply personal memoir, Barnard speaks frankly about his relationships with his brother, his colleagues and his adversaries, and describes with humility his fourteen-year struggle with cancer.With candour, authenticity and charm, Defining Moments presents the formidable challenges and spellbinding successes in the life of this international medical icon.
The Million-Rand Teaspoon
When I saw Lee cook up the paregoric, strap the tourniquet around her arm and put the needle into her vein, I was instantly captivated by a ritual that would eventually come to dominate my existence. But of course I didn't know that then. I just wanted to try it.' – Paul Bateman'I will never forget that little teaspoon. It was the only remaining item left in Paul's flat in Durban when I went there with my wife to see what Paul had done. The only thing left. Not even a fork, or a knife or a cup to go with it. A teaspoon. Other than the clothes on his back, it was the only material thing that Paul had left in the world.' – Mark Bateman'When we visited, we could hear him screaming even before we got out of the car. He was going through withdrawal, even in his comatose state, and that is when we first knew for certain that he could never have got clean if this hadn't happened. He could never have got through that fully awake and aware and in control of himself. He wouldn't have been able to.' – Val BatemanThis is the true story of Paul Bateman's journey from experimentation to drug addiction and beyond. It is also an account of the experiences of the people around him, in their attempts to cope with him, before and after the overdose that almost killed him.The events are told from multiple points of view, with different chapters narrated by Paul, his girlfriend, his mother and other members of his family. The Million-Rand Teaspoon gives a complete, insightful, honest picture of the effect of drugs on the addict and his loved ones.

The Springboks and the Holy Grail
This is the epic story of South Africa's amazing quests for the Rugby World Cup, which resulted in triumph at Ellis Park in 1995 and in Paris in 2007, while there was heartbreak in 1999 and shame in 2003.

The author was closely involved in all four RWC campaigns while working for the Sunday Times and SuperSport, and he provides behind-the-scenes reportage on the great cast and incredible incidents that made for such riveting drama.This is a story of human heroism and frailty, of great dignity and patent jealousy that transcends the mere realm of sport.

This is a candid glimpse behind the scenes that often reads like pure fiction.
Tastes of Africa
Justice Kamanga takes the reader on a gastronomic safari, expoloring the taste and textures of indigenous African cuisine, as well as dishes that have been influenced or introduced by foreign settlers to the continent from Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Simple in the choice of ingredients and easy to prepare, both traditional and fusion African cooking are nevertheless as intriguing in the subtle blends of flavours, colours and tantalising aromas as the lands from which they come, where they have formed delicious and different staples for hundreds—and in some cases thousands—of years. In order for the home cook to organize his or her own African-themed lunch or dinner, the recipes in Tastes of Africa have been traditionally grouped, including starters, fish, meat, vegetarian, side dishes, desserts and breads, and are accompanied by authentically styled, full-colour photography.
