We just learned that The Go-Giver has been available for a while now in Afrikaans, under the title, Die Weg-Gewer: ’n Storie oor ’n Kragtige Sake-idee. You can find it here on the publisher’s site.
While we can’t read Afrikaans, and neither Bablefish nor GoogleTranslate has developed Afrikaans-reading ability yet, we couldn’t help noticing that on the publisher’s home page, where they feature books by such authors as Eckart Tolle and Suze Orman, the book the choose to quite at the top of the page is . . . yes, you guessed it, Die Weg-Gewer!
Earlier this year a reader, Willem S. Eksteen, posted this note on The Go-Giver blog:
This principle is very strong in South African society, and we have a national spirit of giving which is called “Ubunthu,” which strives to promote giving and cooperation between the variety of groups that make up our diverse nation (also labeled the Rainbow Nation by one of our Nobel laureats, Archbishop Desmond Tutu).
Perhaps the book is popular in South Africa! Anyone have any friends there?
