When South Africa’s golden girl of broadcasting, Tracy Going’s battered face was splashed across the media back in the late 1990s, the nation was shocked. South Africans had become accustomed to seeing Going, glamorous and groomed on television or hearing her resonant voice on Radio Metro and Kaya FM. Sensational headlines of a whirlwind love relationship turned horrendously violent threw the “perfect” life of the household star into disarray.
What had started off as a fairy-tale romance with a man who appeared to be everything that Going was looking for – charming, handsome and successful – had quickly descended into a violent, abusive relationship.
“As I stood before him all I could see were the lies, the disappearing for days without warning, the screaming, the threats, the terror, the hostage-holding, the keeping me up all night, the dragging me through the house by my hair, the choking, the doors locked around me, the phones disconnected, the isolation, the fear and the uncertainty.”
The rosy love cloud burst just five months after meeting her “Prince Charming” when she staggered into the local police station, bruised and battered. A short relationship became a two-and-a-half-year legal ordeal played out in the public eye. In mesmerising detail, Going takes us through the harrowing court process – a system seeped in injustice – her decline into depression, the immediate collapse of her career due to the highly public nature of her assault and the decades-long journey to undo the psychological damages in the search for safety and the reclaiming of self. The roots of violence form the backdrop of the book, tracing Going’s childhood on a plot in Brits, laced with the unpredictable violence of an alcoholic father who regularly terrorised the family with his fists of rage.
“I was ashamed of my father, the drunk. If he wasn’t throwing back the liquid in the lounge then he’d be finding comfort and consort in his cans at the golf club. With that came the uncertainty as I lay in my bed and waited for him to return. I would lie there holding my curtain tight in my small hand. I would pull the fabric down, almost straight, forming a strained sliver and I would peer into the blackness, unblinking. It seemed I was always watching and waiting. Sometimes I searched for satellites between the twinkles of light, but mostly the fear in my tummy distracted me.”
Brilliantly penned, this highly skilled debut memoir, is ultimately uplifting in the realisation that healing is a lengthy and often arduous process and that self-forgiveness and acceptance is essential in order to fully embrace life.

Featuring over 100 recipes, The Gourmet Cookbook celebrates five years of food, and recipes, garnered from the pages of Condé Nast House & Garden Gourmet magazine.
From aspirational yet easy-to-follow dishes by some of South Africa’s top chefs (David Higgs, Peter Tempelhoff, Chris Erasmus) and food icons (Susan Greig, Andrea Burgener, Judy Badenhorst) to the coveted recipes of home cooks as well as the editor’s own specialties, these pages focus on a range of accessible and delicious everyday dishes.
The Gourmet Cookbook is divided into five chapters – Aperitifs & Appetizers, Starters, Mains, Sides & Salads and Dessert. And there are accompanying menu suggestions to tailor-make a stylish dinner party, an al fresco lunch, a festive feast or a laid-back family meal.

A leading childhood nutrition researcher and an experienced public health educator explain the hidden danger sugar poses to a child’s development and health and offer parents an essential 7- and 28-day “sugarproof” program.
Most of us know that sugar can wreak havoc on adult bodies, but few realize how uniquely harmful it is to the growing livers, hearts, and brains of children. And the damage can begin early in life. In his research on the effects of sugar on kids’ present and future health, USC Professor of Pediatrics and Program Director for Diabetes and Obesity at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Michael Goran has found that too much sugar doesn’t just cause childhood obesity, it can cause health issues in kids who are not overweight too, including fatty liver disease, prediabetes, and elevated risk for eventual heart disease. And, it is a likely culprit in the behavioral, emotional, and learning problems that many children struggle with every day.
In a groundbreaking study, Goran’s team conducted a detailed analysis of the sugary products that kids love and found that these yogurts, cereals, sodas, and juices often had more sugar than advertised and also contained different types of sugar than were being disclosed. Today’s children are not just consuming more sugar than ever, but they are consuming sugars that are particularly harmful to them–and their parents don’t even know it.
The news is dire, but there is also plenty of hope. We can prevent, address, and even in many cases reverse the effects of too much sugar. In this guide to “Sugarproof” kids, Dr. Goran and co-author Dr. Emily Ventura, an expert in nutrition education and recipe development, bust myths about the various types of sugars and sweeteners, help families identify sneaky sources of sugar in their diets, and suggest realistic, family-based solutions to reduce sugar consumption and therefore protect kids. Their unique “Sugarproof” approach teaches parents to raise informed and empowered kids who can set their own healthy limits without feeling restricted. With a 7- and 28-day challenge to help families right-size sugar in their diets, along with more than 35 recipes all without added sugars, everyone can give their children a healthy new start to life.

It's time to fight back.
Each day, more South Africans are targeted, labelled, and hounded out of society for expressing their opinions - ordinary opinions that just a few years ago were accepted as rational common sense. Have you been "cancelled" by an online mob that won't stop harassing you until you're fired from your job? Helen Zille almost was - but she survived by fighting back. In #StayWoke: Go Broke, the bestselling author and defining South African political figure explains why the woke Left constitutes a greater threat to South Africa's future than the populist Right does.
Now more than ever, liberals must strengthen their spines and fight for their values - or be eviscerated in the Culture Wars raging across the English-speaking world. If you're looking for an incisive, indispensable survival guide through this tumultuous period of South African history, then #StayWoke: Go Broke is for you.
It’s been 24 years since the launch of the first edition of SA Décor & Design – The Buyers Guide and in that time so much has changed in terms of the fast paced digital world we find ourselves in now. With so many décor magazines titles falling by the way-side this year has presented us with a unique opportunity to build and strengthen the SA Décor & Design brand.
"I’m proud to look back on the past few years and see how we have adapted The Buyers Guide, and our digital platforms to these fast changing times. The Guide itself continues to be the most comprehensive reference for designers, decorators, property developers and home owners – the perfect directory for anyone wanting to transform a home or corporate environment. It’s a stylish view of the industry, beautifully presented and featuring thousands of carefully vetted and accurately listed suppliers and service providers. When producing the Buyers Guide each year, we continue to work with the vision of not only ensuring that it continues to be regarded as the Number One sourcing guide to the décor industry in South Africa, but also that it proves to be an informative and interesting guide for the user.
This year we once again received a positive response from our clients, and the guide shows a healthy representation of the South African décor scene. The cover is a gorgeous representation of post - modern chic, and Key elements are spotted to make this cover really stand out on the shelves. We are going hard cover and back to a matt paper, as this year many clients found the soft cover and bond paper to be a poor reflection of what should be the Number one Décor Guide in the country." - Marcia Margolius
Jonathan Ball, the founder of Jonathan Ball Publishers, died on 3 April 2021 after a short illness. This collection of essays, commissioned in tribute to him, is edited by Michele Magwood.
Jonathan Ball left a deep impression on many different people in different ways. The forty or so essays reflect the many facets of Jonathan. The chapter headings would read husband, father, businessman, friend, brother, colleague. But it is in the subheads that we begin to understand the shape of him: publisher extraordinaire, history expert, gourmand, liberal thinker, suitor, philosemite and so on.
It cannot be exaggerated how deep an imprint Jonathan has left on the political and cultural life of South Africa, too. The shelves of Jonathan Ball Publishers are weighted with serious history and biographies of eminent figures, with books that other publishers didn’t have the boldness, the sheer guts, to take on. But there are many smaller, more finespun stories that tell us too who we are as a people and as a nation.
Many believe the pandemic crisis of 2020 is only a foretaste of things to come. If so, it serves as a wake-up call to remind us of the urgency of protecting our health.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the entire world has had to rethink the way we do health. With this new paradigm backed by the latest scientific research, Don Colbert, MD, brings you cutting-edge medical advice and tells you everything you need to know to optimize your body’s immune system, avoid exposure, detect the early warning signs, and treat and recover from illness during pandemics like COVID-19.
We don’t have to live in fear. The good news is that we can learn from this pandemic as well as those in the past, and we can arm ourselves with the tools we need to be prepared for pandemic outbreaks both now and in the future.
After reading this book, you will know what to do to optimize your health, protect your family, and detect the early warning signs of disease outbreaks.
“Whenever I see a Manyano woman, I see a woman who has the world in her hands and has the power to make things change because of the power that is prayer”. - Stella Shumbe
“As a Manyano, you listen to painful journeys and experiences of people … They talk about abuse at home, unemployment, children who are reckless and all the sensitive things you can think of … We come together to share our pain and struggles.’ - Nobuntu Madwe
Lihle Ngcobozi, herself the progeny of three generations of Manyano women, takes an original, fresh look at the meaning of the Manyano. Between male-dominated struggle narratives and Western feminist misreadings, this church-based women's organisation has become a mere footnote to history.
Long overlooked as the juggernaut of black women’s organising that it has been and continues to be, the Manyano has immense historical and cultural meaning in black communities across the country. To this day, it is still evolving to meet the changing needs of black South Africans. Here, the Manyano women speak for themselves, in an African feminist meditation rendered by one of their own.

Following on from the bestselling Banting 7 Day Meal Plans, with over 14 000 books sold since its release in October 2019, this is the book the Banting community have been asking for for seven years!
With a Facebook group that has grown to over 2.3 million people — many of whom follow a vegetarian lifestyle part or full time — and using current research, the authors of this book give you the tools, practical advice and show it is possible to follow a Low Carb, Banting or Keto lifestyle while observing the choice to not eat meat.
'Getting enough protein', 'going into fat burning', this book answers all the questions.
Can we reverse the mental health crisis by getting rid of Mondays? Is it time to stop poor people being poor by... giving them money? Can we quell the fires of populism by giving young people a say in the future?
As the shockwaves of Covid 19 continue to spread, and as the smoke clears from a year of anger and unrest, many people feel forlorn about the future. In End State, James Plunkett argues that this can be a moment not of despair, but of historic opportunity - a chance to rethink, renew, and reform some of the most fundamental ways we organise society. In much the same way as societies emerged stronger from crises in the past - building the state as we know it today - we too can build a happier future.
James Plunkett has spent his career thinking laterally about the complicated relationships between individuals and the state. First as an advisor to Gordon Brown, then a leading economic researcher and writer, and then in the charity sector, helping people struggling at the front-line of economic change. James combines a deep understanding of social issues with an appreciation of how change is playing out not in the ivory tower, but in the reality of people's lives.
Now, in his first book, he sets out an optimistic vision, exploring nine ways in which our social settlement can be upgraded to harness the power of the digital age. Covering a dizzying sweep of geography and history, from London's 18th Century sewage systems to the uneasy inequality of Silicon Valley, it's a thrilling and iconoclastic account of how society can not only survive, but thrive, in the digital age.
End State provides a much-needed map to help us navigate our way over the curious terrain of the twenty-first century.
Although the book is about how the suggested mindful program can replace detention, in schools, it will also be insightful for the reader to discover oneself and place him or herself on a new journey with new goals and motivation. To understand mindfulness, you must understand yourself.

It is advisable that you have an in-depth knowledge of mindfulness, how to manage the internal self, how to understand others before you can implement a program of this nature in your school.
Your operating system (cemented beliefs), which has been developed and embedded over the years, should be formatted, removing the constant negative voice that keeps talking in the background.

This is the basic text of the Narcotics Anonymous fellowship. Just as with alcoholism, there is no 'cure' for narcotic addiction, but recovery is possible through a program adapted from the ""Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions"" of Alcoholics Anonymous. This book, written by addicts, for addicts, about addicts, sets forth the spiritual principles of Narcotics Anonymous that hundreds of thousands of addicts have used in recovery. Intended as a complete textbook for every addict seeking recovery, ""Narcotics Anonymous"" describes the N.A. program and how it works. It includes the ""N.A. Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions"", as well as many personal stories of men and women who have found freedom from addiction through Narcotics Anonymous.
Leah Hawker brings together 101 women to tell their stories about the realities of breastfeeding, a subject often hidden from the public eye. They explore personal truths, myths and attitudes towards the practice, inevitably raising topical questions about how women feel about themselves, how they are seen by others and how they are marketed to.
Portraits of every woman standing tall, feeding her child in public, accompany the candid accounts. The title of the project is Breastfeeding 101, and even though it is not intended as a manual, it may serve as one.
