Hoe Verklaar Jy Dit? (Afrikaans, Paperback): Danny Fourie Hoe Verklaar Jy Dit? (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Danny Fourie 2
R230 R198 Discovery Miles 1 980 Save R32 (14%) In stock

Ons weet dat die maan iets met die getye te doen het, maar het jy geweet dat jy met volmaan altyd dieselfde kant van die maan sien? Of dat weerligstrale vol vernietigende elektrisiteit is, maar dat ’n elektriese paling ’n lading van tot 600 volt kan vrystel?

Hierdie feite is deel van ’n magdom kennis oor die natuur, fisiese wetenskap en die ruimte wat die RSG-program Hoe verklaar jy dit? reeds jare lank beantwoord. Hierdie publikasie bevat ’n keur uit die honderde vrae van nuuskierige luisteraars wat deur kundiges verduidelik is om die węreld minder vreemd te maak, want nie alle kennis van die węreld om ons is voor die hand liggend nie. Daar is honderde verskynsels in die natuur en ruimte wat vra om verklaar te word. Dan praat ons nie eens van die mensgemaakte uitvindings soos die internet, persoonlike rekenaars, globale posisioneringstelsels, selfone, radiogolwe, teorie van evolusie, relatiwiteitsteorie, narkose en mense in die ruimte nie. Agter die alledaagse skuil die fassinerende werking van kragte en wette en die wetenskap in werking: Wat bepaal dat ’n mens se hart aan die linkerkant van die liggaam sit? Hoekom vries water in ’n dam van bo en nie van onder af nie? Kan gene deur omstandighede gemodifiseer word?

Hoe Verklaar Jy Dit? is ’n boek wat jou belangstelling in die węreld om jou sal prikkel. Dit is ’n boek wat op sy eie gelees kan word, wat op die koffietafel kan lę en wat saam kan gaan kamp om wonderlike gesprekke om die braaivleisvuur uit te lok.

The Way I See It - The Musings Of A Black Woman In The Rainbow Nation (Paperback): Lerato Tshabalala The Way I See It - The Musings Of A Black Woman In The Rainbow Nation (Paperback)
Lerato Tshabalala 1
R220 R189 Discovery Miles 1 890 Save R31 (14%) Within 4 - 8 working days

Lerato Tshabalala first came to our attention in 2011 with her ‘Urban Miss’ column in the Sunday Times, and since then she has by turns entertained, exasperated, amused and confounded her fans and critics alike.

Now, with her first book, she looks set to become the national institution she deserves to be. With her customary wit and keen insight into social, political and cultural affairs, Lerato shines a bright – and controversial – light on South African society and the quirky ways of the country. She is brutally honest about her experiences as a black South African in post-apartheid Mzansi, and no subject is too sacred for her to explore: annoying car guards, white-dominated corporate South Africa, cultural stereotypes, economic and racial inequality, and gender politics, among many other topics, come under her careful – and often laugh-out-loud – scrutiny.

The Way I See It is written for people who are hungry for a book that is thought-provoking, funny, irreverent and truly South African all at the same time. It is light but full of depth: like a supermodel with an MBA!

Jeremy Clarkson

For a while, Jeremy could be found in his normal position as the tallest man on British television but, more recently, he appears to have been usurped by a pretend elephant. But on paper the real Jeremy remains at the helm. So, whether he's pondering: If Jesus might have been better off being born in New Zealand Why reflexive pronoun abuse is the worst thing in the world How Pam Ayres's head trumps Gordon Gecko's underpants Or what a television presenter with time on his hands gets up to Jeremy is still trying to make sense of the big stuff.

Pruimtwak & Skaduboksers - Rubrieke, Heildronke En Nagedagtes (Afrikaans, Paperback): Danie Marais Pruimtwak & Skaduboksers - Rubrieke, Heildronke En Nagedagtes (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Danie Marais
R47 Discovery Miles 470 Within 10 - 15 working days

Om sin te maak van die hele virtuele warboel in die 21ste eeu moet ’n mens hoog en laag soek. En dis presies wat die bekroonde digter en joernalis Danie Marais doen in Pruimtwak & Skaduboksers – ’n onderhoudende versameling van rubrieke, essays, heildronke en nabetragtings wat met speelse erns en entoesiasme die verbande verken tussen boeke, die tydsgees, popkultuur en die verdwaasde gewone ou wat naweke in sy braaivleisvuur tuur.

In hierdie stukke wonder Marais – soms sober, soms skertsend – wat geword het van rock 'n' roll, sy generasie X en randfigure soos Peter Blum.

Alles en almal van Darth Vader, die Simpsons, Katy Perry, Bruce Springsteen, Fokofpolisiekar, die boeremusieklegende David de Lange en The Big Lebowski tot die agterryers van die Anglo-Boereoorlog praat saam in ’n bundel wat jou laat glimlag én dink.

Melk Die Heilige Koeie - Van Baarde En Banting Tot Zupta En Zol (Afrikaans, Paperback): Deon Maas Melk Die Heilige Koeie - Van Baarde En Banting Tot Zupta En Zol (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Deon Maas
R225 R179 Discovery Miles 1 790 Save R46 (20%) In stock

Skreeusnaaks en uittartend soos net Deon Maas kan.

In hierdie boek ontsien Maas niks of niemand nie. Hy skryf onbeskaamd en doodeerlik oor allerlei eg Suid-Afrikaanse heilige koeie. Afrikaans op kampusse, selfies, baarde, banting, die Guptas en die sogenaamde Stellenbosch Mafia loop deur onder die uitgesproke skrywer se skerp pen. Sy blatante eerlikheid oor alles van mans se “menere” tot Julius Malema, gay huwelike en NG-dominees is verfrissend.

Dit is vlymskerp, omstrede en onvergeetlik.

Die Groot Drie - 'N Eeu Van Spotprente in Die Burger (Afrikaans, Paperback): Francois Verster Die Groot Drie - 'N Eeu Van Spotprente in Die Burger (Afrikaans, Paperback)
Francois Verster
R230 R198 Discovery Miles 1 980 Save R32 (14%) Within 4 - 8 working days

Die Groot Drie bied 'n sonderlinge blik op die opkoms, hoogbloei en uiteindelike ondergang van Afrikaner-nasionalisme vanuit die perspektief van drie wereldklas-satirici: D.C. Boonzaier, T.O. Honiball en Fred Mouton. Die Burger is in 1915 in die lewe geroep om as mondstuk te dien vir Afrikaners wat aan die begin van die 20ste eeu op hul kniee gedwing is deur die Anglo-Boereoorlog, verstedeliking en grootskaalse armoede. In die eerste honderd jaar van die koerant se bestaan het net die drie kunstenaars diens gedoen as spotprenttekenaars. Boonzaier het skerp en raak aanvalle op opponente van die Nasionale Party geloods, en die karikatuurkuns ten volle bemeester; die veelsydige Honiball het lesers se empatie gewek met sy speelse styl; en Mouton se uitbeelding van tipies Suid-Afrikaanse tonele het van hom 'n gewilde humorskepper en belangrike meningsvormer gemaak. In hierdie boek gee Francois Verster, Naspers se maatskappy-argivaris, 'n onderhoudende historiese oorsig van die bydrae wat elk van die spotprenttekenaars gelewer het.

Children are little gems, not least for their sense of humour and the hilariously funny things they spring on us, whether intentional or not. The author started collecting the cute and surprising things her grandchildren said, and was soon joined by friends and family, all of whom had something to contribute. The result is this collection of stories and one-liners, which is bound to make even the dourest among us smile. A mirror of real life with children, this title often reveals profound wisdom behind the humour, verbalising the most honest and revealing thoughts that seem to need the innocence of a child for the humour to shine through. It has a timeless, universal appeal and will be lapped up and enjoyed by parents, grandparents and teachers alike. At times side-splittingly funny, the stories in this collection have been divided into chapters dealing with everyday aspects of life, such as old age, children's ailments, family and siblings, love and emotions, and children's concepts about God and religion.
