Description : Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah | Book Summary | Abbey Beathan (Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book.) A bold mixture of humour and crude anecdotes, Born a Crime is a biography like nothing you have heard before. Believe me when I say this, Trevor Noah is not a boring storyteller. He doesn't follow a traditional way of telling stories of his life like other biographers might. His comedian side burst out of his soul and lands in his writing, delivering a unique touch between crude and funny. Finding even in the most traumatic stories of his childhood, a sense of humor. (Note: This summary is wholly written and published by Abbey Beathan. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way) "We tell people to follow their dreams, but you can only dream of what you can imagine, and, depending on where you come from, your imagination can be quite limited." – Trevor Noah A book highly recommended to be enjoyed in audio due to Trevor's chameleon-like ability to imitate dialects and accents to perfection where he fluently shifts from language to language showing his proficiency but also entertaining us while he tells us a story. Born a Crime is a really personal book where it will be as if you're having a conversation with Trevor Noah and he's pouring his heart out about his troubling childhood. Definitely a book that will leave you content. In Born a Crime you'll feel Trevor Noah's comedian side but you'll also see him as a human being. P.S. Born a Crime is a journey through the turbulent life of Trevor Noah. P.P.S. It was Albert Einstein who famously said that once you stop learning, you start dying.

During the apartheid in South Africa, an interracial union was forbidden by the law and could ensue five years of imprisonment. Trevor's father was a Swiss man and his mother was a Xhosa woman-he was the living proof of their relation. Because of this, Trevor grew up being hidden and protected by his mother, by all means possible, in fear of the government taking him away from her. When South Africa was finally liberated from the white colonization, Trevor and his mother went off on an adventure entailing multitudes of difficulties and seizing opportunities. The book, Born a Crime, tells the tale of a young mixed-race boy growing up in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It tells his story of overcoming difficulties he could possibly face with his strong, courageous, dedicated, and religion mother who was determined to take her son away from all the violence, poverty, and abuse that she, herself, faced. Every story within the overarching story of Trevor involves crises that are overwhelming, dangerous, and touching-with a touch of humor. From having to survive eating caterpillars for dinner, experiencing attempted kidnapping, to simply trying to work out how the world of dating in high school, Trevor shows the stories reflecting himself through wit and humor. He creates a tale entwining small sagas of trying to grow up as a fine man amidst a difficult and dangerous world, guided by his own sense of humor and his mother's unconditional love.

Description : PLEASE NOTE: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Trevor Noah's Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. PREVIEW: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood is television star Trevor Noah's memoir about growing up as a mixed-race child-first under apartheid, and then in its wake. Part tribute to his mother, part indictment of his white oppressors, this coming-of-age story paints a vibrant picture of Johannesburg in the 1980s and '90s, and beyond. Born to a black mother and a white father in 1984, Noah and his family navigated many unusual challenges on top of the usual hardships faced by black families in that time and place. Noah's parents, an African woman and a Swiss man, had an unusual relationship. They never married, and Noah isn't sure to what degree they were even romantically involved. (They were, at the very least, good friends.) His mother was keen to have a child, and his father was to be a glorified sperm donor. But after Noah was born, his father decided that he wanted to be meaningfully involved in his life.

Anastasia build upon this best-selling critical review of criminology, which has become essential reading for students of criminology in the 21st century.

In this latest edition, the authors explore the kind of criminology that is needed for the globally interdependent twenty-first century. With cutting-edge updates, illustrative real-world examples, and new study tools for students, this text is a necessity for both undergraduate and graduate courses in criminology.
