it was amazing

كتاب ملهم جداً، كانت هدية ممتازة من قارئ عزيز، و كنت قد سمعت عن ترشيح بيل جيتس لهذا الكتاب من قبل.

خرجت بالعديد من المعلومات التي لم أكن أعلم عنها شيئاً في جنوب إفريقيا، مثل نظام الاستعمار، و نظام العبيد، و النظام الداخلي العنصري الذي تجاوز كل حدود العقل.

كيف في مثل هذا الجو البغيض أن تخرج إمرأة خارقة تتحدى الأعراف والقوانين، وتتعلم و تعمل وتستقل بنفسها، وتعلم ابنها تعليماً رائعاً، تعلمه أن يصبح رجلاً، أن يفهم الحياة، أن يعامل المرأة فيه حياته أياً كانت باحترام.

علاقة جميلة جداً علاقته بأمه، كانوا أصدقاء، كانوا سنداً لبعضهم البعض حتى النهاية.

أصبح من لاشيء إلى أن يكون من أشهر stand up comedy في أمريكا.

كتاب مؤلم لكن الكاتب بأسلوبه الساخر يجعل الرحلة سهلة، و مليئة بالضحكات. وسط تلك الرحلة ستفهم معنى الحب، معنى التعليم، معنى السعي، معنى الإصرار، معنى تربية الأطفال. ستكتشف زيف المجتمعات جامعة و زيف احترامهم للمرأة، سواء كانت مجتمعات متقدمة أو متأخرة، متدينة أو علمانية.

كتاب أنصح بقراءته بالطبع.

Quotes أحمد Liked

Trevor Noah
“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.”
Trevor Noah, Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood

Trevor Noah
“The hood made me realize that crime succeeds because crime does the one thing the government doesn’t do: crime cares. Crime is grassroots. Crime looks for the young kids who need support and a lifting hand. Crime offers internship programs and summer jobs and opportunities for advancement. Crime gets involved in the community. Crime doesn’t discriminate.”
Trevor Noah, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood

Trevor Noah
“The way my mother always explained it, the traditional man wants a woman to be subservient, but he never falls in love with subservient women. He’s attracted to independent women. “He’s like an exotic bird collector,” she said. “He only wants a woman who is free because his dream is to put her in a cage.”
Trevor Noah, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood

Trevor Noah
“Where does a woman go in a society where that is the norm? When the police won’t help her? When her own family won’t help her? Where does a woman go when she leaves one man who hits her and is just as likely to wind up with another man who hits her, maybe even worse than the first? Where does a woman go when she’s single with three kids and she lives in a society that makes her a pariah for being a manless woman? Where she’s seen as a whore for doing that? Where does she go? What does she do? But I didn’t comprehend any of that at the time.”
