UKZN alumnus Mr Vincent Naidoo has written a book titled Seriously Kidding.
The book includes quotes from great leaders, thinkers, poets and philosophers on subjects such as how to deal with adversity, the meaning of life, the value of self-improvement, the importance of helping others, the power of our thoughts and the need for a stronger character.
Naidoo believes the powerful life quotations can be used as a frame of reference when people need instant inspiration or advice about how to deal with problems. ‘My message is simple, Enjoy life, because you were born to be awesome,’ said Naidoo.
Seriously Kidding, which includes a chapter on light hearted humor, contains landscape pictures and amusing snippets.
‘I wrote this book with the intention of restoring the library at the St. Vincent’s Children’s Home in Pinetown. A percentage of the proceeds will be allocated for the restoration,’ said Naidoo.
Aimed at all age groups, Seriously Kidding is available in local outlets including pharmacies at R100 a copy. Phone 083 777 1722 for more information on availability.
* Naidoo obtained his Bachelor of Commerce (1996) and Honors (1998) degrees at the former University of Durban-Westville, and completed his MBA degree at Mancosa in 2000. He is currently an Executive Insurance Adviser at ABSA Bank, where he has been for the past 17 years.
