Mark Heywood has spearheaded victories for justice in South Africa. One of the founders of TAC, he was key in forcing the government to provide HIV-treatment, and more recently in exposing the textbook crisis in Limpopo and organising the “Zuma must fall” campaign. Here he recounts the personal story behind his public persona in a gripping, readable tale featuring i.a. the Sex Pistols and Chinese dissidents. Honest, urgent and inspirational.

Real and stirring, but not a "how to" guide

Tue, 30 May 2017 | Review by: Jane Herschelman

I bought a copy at the airport in a fit of hope. Maybe, after all, there was something I could do to to help Zuma fall? What I got was something quite different to what I had expected. I was so carried away by Mark Heywoods's beautifully told story that I was the last to get off the plane. His writing is witty, easy to read, and also quite poetic at times. Not many direct tips as to how we should get rid of Zuma, but a real and honest recounting of a life of activism. You will applaud when TAC wins its victories, when good overcomes. But you will also have to wrestle along with Heywood with the more intractable aspects of South African politics.
