FUN, FACTS & TRIVIA Derryn Campbell offers us this wonderfully eclectic and informative insight into all that is South African. Leaving behind a successful corporate career in management, Derryn followed a vision to encourage South Africans to positively influence the future of their country. In 2007 Derryn co-founded Awesome SA, a non-profit movement that not only interacts with South Africans to create awareness about their country, but also facilitates initiatives to deliver positive outcomes. Thanks to the passion and commitment of Derryn and her colleagues, Awesome SA has brightened the hearts and outlook of thousands of people around the world. This book is a visual cacophony of all that is unique, exceptional, and noteworthy about South Africa: its heritage, its people and its heart. Irrespective of age, race or gender, the book is sure to be enjoyed by everyone – cynic and enthusiast.

’A delightful collection of interesting South African facts and anecdotes that is sure to have half the family reading over your shoulder.’
