2. I hope you will follow through and read the book

I loved it, because I like him so much and wanted to know more about what his roots are. Then I had the opportunity to go to Johannesburg, his home town, and Cape Town, where he also spent time with his father, and immediately re-read it with greater insight and understanding.
A wonderful story of how he was raised and he tells it with heart and with insight.

3. Oh, I will. I downloaded a sample to my IPAD right

after watching the tape, and will see if I can get it from the library.. I do love his show.

In the 60's, I had a good friend in high school who was from South Africa. She was a wonderful girl, spoke just like Trevor. I lost contact years ago. Wish we had stayed in touch.

4. I made some superb friends there

and with what you said I will double my intention and action to stay in touch. As I was traveling I saw his book all over the airport stores as the hot item.

7. Trevor Noah is wonderful

I was dubious when he took over for Jon Stewart because of course Jon is irreplaceable. But Trevor has won my respect and admiration. He's smart and funny and insightful and I love his accent. I will have to read his book.
