This collection of Professor Piet Naudé ‘s weekly columns, published over a nine-year period in The Herald, is – like the man himself – warm, engaging, occasionally mischievous and funny, but always thought-provoking. He was recognised for this writing by winning the 2011 Vodacom Journalist of the Year award. Piet’s academic credentials are impeccable. He has a master’s degree in Philosophy (cum laude) and a doctorate in theology from Stellenbosch University. After a term as Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Academic at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth, he returned to his alma mater in September 2014 to take up a position as Director of the University of Stellenbosch Business School. This selection of columns showcases the best of Piet’s writing. It will amuse, entertain, and – most importantly – get you thinking.
