“People love to say, “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” What they don’t say is, “And it would be nice if you gave him a fishing rod.” That’s the part of the analogy that’s missing.
I listened to Born A Crime on Audible – highly recommend it that way! Trevor Noah reads it himself, adding so much texture to the stories. He brings experience and insight to this book as he weaves together so many threads. I’ll be thinking about it for a long time.
