BRUSSELS - For anyone that thinks Belgium is just about chocolates and beer. A booktrailer lived there and recommends Place Jourdan for the best French fries this side of. well Belgium with Andalouse sauce!
When you think of post election violence in 2007/2008, we do not think of the damaged it caused. We quickly picked up the pieces and moved on. Unfortunately, we are ready to do it again every election year. 2017 was an election year in Kenya and we went back to our old habits. Our neighbours suddenly became our enemies because they were from a different tribe. This book defines who Boniface Mwangi is and why he does what he does as an activist.
One of those books that I enjoyed reading. It was hard to put it down. There is truly great talent in Africa. #AfricanWritersRock
Quiet: The power of introverts in a World that can't stop talking by Susan Cain is a must read for introverts and extroverts as well. We need to stop putting both introverts and extroverts in a box and expect them to deliver in the same way. When people can't stop saying "socialise more." We need to change the narrative that socialisation doesn't equate to success.
Late to the party but it was worth it! I just couldn't put it down. Comes highly recommended.
This book was such a difficult read. I never finished it. Maybe I will pick it up after a couple of months.
