Each day Jansen (@JJ_UFS) writes a "Letter to my children" -- a nugget of advice on life, love and becoming a compassionate, thinking human being. Jansen has become South Africa's moral barometer in a time when leadership seems to be sorely lacking in many areas of our country which explains why this project has struck such a chord with South Africans young and old alike.

In this book, Jansen explains his thinking behind his wildly popular Twitter campaign and shares the first 160 Tweets with his readers. The Tweets range in subject from politics, to love and relationships, to being a student and ensuring that you question the status quo. They include the following examples: condoms break; never under any circumstances become a politician; choose public service instead; here is the secret to dealing with peer pressure--choose the right peers; go to university to screw-up; how else will you learn?

Imagine if all your Christmases did actually “come at once”.
That idiom is supposed to evoke an image of delight, happiness and nothing going wrong, but the British Christmas doesn’t always turn out that way. Yes, sometimes all the gifts are perfect, everyone’s on great form and no one chokes on a mince pie. But on other occasions you’ll fall through a glass cabinet or set your cardigan on fire.
A Very British Christmas pays tribute to all the peculiar ways we choose to celebrate; it tells stories of our propensity to behave badly, our uselessness under pressure and our unquenchable joie de vivre. Join us as we salute cultural icons, dissect national customs and hear from people who’ve eaten all the turkey and lived to tell the tale.

Are men supposed to be fighters? Lovers? Hunter-gatherers? Fashionistas? Business gurus? Culinary experts? You're wrong if you think one man can't be a jack AND a master of all trades. In How To Be A Man, I'll show you how to be a proper god amongst men. This book caters for a girthy gap in the market but it's not just for the lads! Ladies, take heed - these are the qualities you should look for in a heterosexual mate. You'll learn how to boss a job interview - remember, the eyes are the windows to the soul which is why you should avoid eye-contact at all costs. You don't want them looking into your disgustingly dirty soul. I also share some chirpsing tekkers, such as my new style, `7 down, 1 up,' where you viciously insult the lady seven times and then give her one compliment. And I've even shared some of my go-to recipes (Medium Rare Hearty Chicken with Crunchy Peanut Dust Roast Potato and Beef Monster Munch). But I'm not giving you any more details than that - you'll have to buy the book. Remember, the first hit's for free but you'll be back! ;) So, sit back, relax, light a candle. Get naked if you want to. Get the baby oil out - I don't judge - and let your manly juices flow. PS. I dedicate this book to my ex-wife, Aldona. I loved you and you ended up running away with another man, stealing my beautiful Merc and my most prized possession - the golden foot spa. But I'm totally over it and look at me now - I'm only a bloody published author. So yeah, I'm totally FINE. I'm thriving, in fact. I don't need you anymore! I AM SO OVER YOU! HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS BOOK!
