Description

This is the story of Guy Winship, told in his own words. Growing up in South Africa during the apartheid years, Guy joined the struggle for equality and democracy while throwing himself into improving conditions in poor communities. His work in microfinance and livelihood development in South Africa and Uganda provided the foundation for Good Return, a not-for-profit organisation that he established fifteen years ago. Three years ago, Guy was diagnosed with terminal ocular melanoma, the same cancer that killed the author and neurologist Oliver Sacks. But with indefatigable energy, Guy continues to work, travel and enjoy life. In this honest, humorous and touching account, Guy reveals his passion and commitment to building a better world. He faces his own mortality with characteristic courage as he reflects on his work, his spirituality, and what it might mean to live a good life.
