"Mathabane is a remarkable human being responsible, committed, reasonable, level-headed, humane, understanding, and empathetic."
"At times [Mathabane] seems a combination of Martin Luther King Jr., whom he paraphrases often, and Gandhi, whose countenance he resembles."
-Itabari Njeri, Los Angeles Times
*** On Ubuntu ***
"There is a word in South Africa: Ubuntu, a word that captures Mandela's greatest gift--his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that are invisible to the eye, that there is a oneness to humanity that we achieve ourselves by sharing ourselves with others and caring for those around us."
-President Barack Obama
"One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu--the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality--Ubuntu--you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity."
-Archbishop Desmond Tutu
*** Praise for Skyhorse Publishing ***
"In the era of corporate dominated mainstream media and feckless herd reporting, Skyhorse's willingness to tackle tough issues that other publishers won't touch has made it a critical cog in our democracy."
-Robert F. Kennedy Jr., New York Times bestselling author
"It has been a pleasure watching Skyhorse Publishing develop into one of the largest and fastest-growing independent publishers over the last decade. Trident does a good deal of business with Skyhorse. Skyhorse has become a cornerstone of independent publishing and has taken its rightful seat in the world of major trade publishing."
-Robert Gottlieb, chairman of Trident Media Group, LLC
