Behind every successful man by Zukiswa Wanner

About the book

Nobantu has everything a girl could dream of: a brilliant businessman for a husband, two adorable children, and two of the best friends a girl could ask for. And yet, on her 35th birthday, surrounded by glitz, glamour and fame, she realizes something important. What has happened to her ambitions? Her career?


This was a gift from Diana during Christmas of 2016. I had lamented that I hadn’t had the chance to read a lot of books by African writers, she went ahead and got me a couple of books written by African writers.

My thoughts on the book is first of all that it was a feel good book. It’s one of the rare books with a happy ending in it.  I loved this book because it was a short and easy read. The overall theme was centered on a woman who had to decide between pursuing her career or her husband’s career.

Nobantu is described as a woman who is well educated, knows how to manage her finances and to add icing to the cake has ambitions she is successfully following.
