About the book - Zimbabwe - Warm Heart Ugly Face
Zimbabwe - Warm Heart, Ugly face is the story of a traumatic Decade of Hyperinflation and its debilitating consequences for the people of Zimbabwe.
It starts with the authors arrival, in the late 90's, in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe's second largest city and once the industrial Heartland of the country - before the violent takeover of the white-owned farms.
The author takes the reader through a 10 year period, from 2000 to 2009, characterised by centralised control of all facets of life and of an economy in free-fall, as well as the desperate measures adopted by ordinary people and by the business community to survive.
In a down-to-earth way the book paints the day-to-day struggle with lengthy electricity and water cuts, empty supermarket shelves and dangerous black-market trading by honest, law-abiding and resilient citizens- just to survive. Arrests, tragedy, death, fear and intimidation were part of daily life in Zimbabwe during these momentous years.
About the book: YOU CAN'T CHANGE THE PIP IN THE PEACH: BUT YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR
You Can’t Change The Pip In The Peach is an easy-to-read guide on how to enhance your interpersonal skills and interpersonal leadership. The author offers suggestions on how changing your behaviour can lead to changed attitudes, opinions and even deeply held beliefs – the main drivers of our behaviour. We decide what we say and how we say it, and this determines how successful our interpersonal interactions are going to be. Much of what the author says appears to be obvious when you read it but more often than not it’s the obvious that escapes us.
Whether you’re in the service industry, a mother, father, corporate executive or just someone who wants to better yourself, then this book is an invaluable read.
