To Quote Myself: A Memoir by Khaya Dlanga

The book is written by one of the easily recognisable marketing gurus in South Africa. Khayalethu Dlanga writes this easy to read memoir about his life in Dutyini, a village in the Eastern Cape, how he ended up in Cape Town and how he got to where he is now, a bestselling author with many accolades under his belt- including a much-coveted Cannes Gold award. An award heโ€™s won twice.
To Quote Myself is not your typical memoir. Itโ€™s written very casually, denoting each event in a way thatโ€™s both informative and humorous. I personally enjoyed the story telling, how he was able to describe a scenario so well that I was able to picture it as he tells it. I was also in awe at how far he has come, from being homeless to a booming career. This story is not just about striving through adversity, and winning, but it proves how current circumstances arenโ€™t at all defining of what the future holds. And itโ€™s not just up to the universe, you must believe.
This page-turner has several life lessons that I feel would be beneficial to the reader. Whether reading about them for the first time, or just as a reminder, I recommend this book to anyone who needs the motivation to keep keeping on.
