Specialised Cooking: The Recce Way - Volume 1 (Paperback): Justin Vermaak, Douw Steyn Specialised Cooking: The Recce Way - Volume 1 (Paperback)

Vulture soup, anyone? Or how about diesel-dipped dog biscuits as a side to some fried python? If you prefer something less severe, then how about having a braai on top of a submarine out in the middle of the ocean?

The South African Special Forces, or Recces, are known for being fearless and tough. Not only must they pass a notoriously gruelling selection course, but once they have qualified as operators, they often spend weeks in the bush living off rat packs and whatever else they can find. This cookbook with a difference combines stories about their experiences in the field during the Border War with recipes from the bush and the sea, and even a few from the kitchen. Fortunately, most meals are edible! These recipe stories offer insight into the scope of activities of the different reconnaissance units, including 4 Recce at Langebaan, 5 Recce at Phalaborwa and 1 Recce at Durban.

Readers will also learn about some of the important life skills needed to be a member of the Special Forces as well as Recce philosophy, such as staying in the moment and being adaptable. This book feeds into the public’s fascination with this elite unit and will help to break down some of the secrecy around the Recces.

The text message arrives in the small hours of the night. It's just three words: "I need you".

Isa drops everything, takes her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten. She spent the most significant days of her life at boarding school on the marshes there, days which still cast their shadow over her. At school Isa and her three best friends used to play the Lying Game. They competed to convince people of the most outrageous stories. Now, after seventeen years of secrets, something terrible has been found on the beach. Something which will force Isa to confront her past, together with the three women she hasn't seen for years, but has never forgotten.

Theirs is no cosy reunion: Salten isn't a safe place for them, not after what they did. It's time for the women to get their story straight...

"There's something you should know before we go any further: my heart is in the wrong place. Now don't say I didn't warn you..."

Perhaps that's why nothing in Alvie's life has ever gone right? Until now. She can finally abandon her credit card debt - and her fruitless three-way relationship with Tinder and Twitter - when fate gives her the chance to steal her identical twin's perfect life. It's just a shame Beth had to die to make Alvie's dreams come true. She may be an accidental murderess, but who can blame her for taking lemons and making lemonade? Well... Beth's husband might, and the police, but only if they can catch her.

So begin seven days of sex, violence and unapologetic selfies - one wild week that sees Alvie break every rule in the book. She never did have much respect for boundaries. It might be madness, but rules are meant to be broken. Right?

Mad is the first in the sexy, shocking and compulsively gripping Mad, Bad & Dangerous To Know trilogy, and the beginning of a rollercoaster ride that those still alive at the end will never forget.

After the screen of a run-down drive-in movie theater collapses and kills four people, the daughter of one of the victims asks private investigator Cal Weaver to look into a recent break-in at her father's house.

Cal discovers a hidden basement room where it's clear that salacious activities have taken place - as well as evidence of missing DVDs. But his investigation soon becomes more complicated when he realises the DVDs may contain something even more shocking. Meanwhile, Detective Barry Duckworth is still trying to solve two murders - one of which is three years old - he believes are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound. As the lies begin to unravel, Cal is headed straight into the heart of a dark secret as his search uncovers more startling truths about Promise Falls. And when yet another murder happens, Cal and Barry are both driven to pursue their investigations, no matter where they lead.

Evil deeds long thought buried are about to haunt the residents of this town - as the sins of the past and present collide with terrifying results.

The study of consumer behaviour provides invaluable insight into consumer information processing, decision-making and buying patterns, regardless of generation or culture. It therefore should form a critical part of marketing plans, strategies, public policy and ethics, and has a considerable impact on business decisions. This fascinating subject also helps us understand our own consumer patterns: when, why and where we buy certain items, why we use them in certain ways, and how we dispose of them.

Free Fall - Why South African Universities Are In A Race Against Time (Paperback): Malcolm Ray Free Fall - Why South African Universities Are In A Race Against Time (Paperback)
Malcolm Ray; Foreword by Vuyo Jack 4
R320 R254 Discovery Miles 2 540 Save R66 (21%) In stock

Free Fall recounts how and why the present education crisis has become the leading cause for black university students in South Africa. Probing deep beneath the surface of the crisis, the book reveals uncomfortable truths about colonial- and apartheid-era education, and traces the tangled web of connections between foreign and South African business interests, the apartheid government, and the role of universities in propping up a white elite and co-opting a subservient black class to their cause.

It brings to life the people and ideas that, over a century-and-a-half, have created a perfect storm for the present crisis in South African higher education. Malcolm Ray combines intellectual rigour with the intimacy of narrative non-fiction, introducing readers to the main protagonists since the end of slavery in 1834, through the rise of missionary education as an instrument of indoctrinating and subjugating black people, and into the apartheid era. Beyond apartheid, the book details how policy blunders by the democratic government since 1994 have conspired with the past to fuel South Africa’s slide into increasing economic and social disarray.

It is the story of the failure of South Africa's democratic government to deal with major fault lines fissuring higher education, and the circumstances that led to the #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall movements. The book ends on a high note, answering the question: ‘What now?’ This book aims to be the beginning of the solution.

South Africa Can Work (Paperback): Frans Rautenbach South Africa Can Work (Paperback)
Frans Rautenbach 1
R250 R200 Discovery Miles 2 000 Save R50 (20%) In stock

What will it take to turn South Africa around? In this insightful and provocative book, Frans Rautenbach proposes a complete overhaul of policy thinking, and provides fresh arguments that effectively address South Africa’s unemployment, race problems and lack of education. He weighs the pros and cons of rent-seeking, the free market, affirmative action, unions, decentralisation and other issues, and in doing so tackles such contentious topics as racism and white privilege, political correctness, state funding of education, and mounting evidence that trade unions substantially suppress employment growth.

In South Africa Can Work, Rautenbach argues, for example, that the only antidote to foster growth and prosperity is free enterprise, which has, significantly, not been tried here; that tripartite, corporatist negotiations to manage the economy of a country (as in the Netherlands, Sweden or Germany) have invariably failed in multi-ethnic societies like South Africa; and that countries – whether rich, middle income or poor – where the bulk of university funding comes from the private sector not only have higher-quality, but also significantly more accessible, tertiary education.

Written by a labour lawyer with a proven track record in his field, South Africa Can Work speaks effectively to a cross-section of readers of all disciplines, and brings sorely needed good news.

In this riveting sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller Maestra, femme fatale Judith Rashleigh once again leads readers into the mesmerizing and dangerous underworld of Europe’s glamorous elite.

Since opening her own art gallery in Venice, Judith Rashleigh—now Elisabeth Teerlinc—can finally stop running. She’s got the paycheck, lifestyle, and wardrobe she always dreamed of, not to mention the interest of a Russian billionaire. But when a chance encounter in Ibiza leads to a corpse that is, for once, not her own doing, she finds her life is back on the line—and she’s more alone than ever. It seems Judith’s become involved with more than just one stolen painting, and there is someone else willing to kill for what’s theirs.

From St. Moritz to Serbia, Judith again finds herself maneuvering the strange landscapes of wealth, but this time there’s far more than her reputation at stake. How far will Rage take Judith? Far enough to escape death?

The second installment in an unforgettable trilogy, Domina is the next sexy, ruthless, and decadent thriller from mastermind L. S. Hilton, and an adventure that will push Judith further than even she imagined she could go.

Parenting: Illustrated With Crappy Pictures - Amber Dusick
Of course you love being a parent. But sometimes, it just sucks. I know. I'm Amber Dusick and I started my blog Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures because I needed a place to vent about the funny (and frustrating) day-to-day things that happened to me as a parent. Turns out, poo is hilarious! At least when you're not the one wiping it up. This book won't make your frustrating moments any less crappy. But these stories about my Crappy Baby, Crappy Boy and my husband, Crappy Papa, will hopefully make you laugh. Because you're not alone. And sometimes the crappiest moments make the best memories. Parenting is wonderful! And also, well, you know. ‘The drawings aren't very good, Mama.' -Crappy Boy, age 5

Questions You're Not Supposed To Ask - Tony Williams

The aim of the book is to arm the ordinary person with the sort of knowledge that is jealously guarded by the Powers That Be and so release the individual from the chains of ignorance. Some of the questions refer to bodily functions (Why is sex so much fun?), some debunk government falsehoods (Why do we pay tax?) while others delve into the supernatural (Is there more to life than meets the eye?) and others simply explain how things operate (What is physics?). Loads of fascinating information and a highly entertaining read from start to finish.

In the Virgin Islands, former president Jake Cazalet receives a warning. He is recuperating on a diving trip after successfully helping Sean Dillon and the rest of the 'Prime Minister's private army' defeat an Al Qaeda operation in London. But though AQ may be weakened and facing competition from other terrorist upstarts, it is far from dead - and it intends to prove it. Soon the ripples from these two events will spread and overlap, not only in Washington but around the world.

Everyone involved will find themselves in the most desperate battle of their lives - and the midnight bell will toll.
