Review on "my best friends are white"

Great humor and easy reading.

Best Humorous Read

I can't put it down. Ndumiso Ngcobo rocks. He must certainly write another book

Educational, enlightening and entertaining

A most enlightening book. I finally understand the thing about black people and BMWs, what my black neighbours in the suburbs really think when we smile at each other in the driveway and even why it is that black kids won't ask questions in class. Now if more people wrote books like this there would be fewer misunderstandings and national peace and harmony would be a whole lot closer. I loved the critique of democracy and now look at Zulu men in a whole new light. For a light, completely un-PC but educational and highly entertaining read this is well worth buying.

Very funny!

Hilarious take on life in SA issues. Absolute must read for all South Africans!
