    What an incredible book. I couldn’t put it down- read till 3:30 am and couldn’t get on with any of my work till I’d finished it next day.
    Celine Hendricks. commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    I loved your book - Blackboards, Bubbles and Cappucinos - a truly inspirational journey through the pages of your book to the inner workings of my mind. You have a way of making me think in ways I never thought before, bringing to light new concepts, ideas,
    feelings that I dare say we need in this day an age of negativity in the soul-crushing rat race. I looked forward to visiting Soul Cafe. It gave a chance to restore some of what was lost in the drudgery of the day.

    I just finished your book – Blackboards, Bubbles & Cappuccinos. At work, we decided we’ll place a blackboard in a central point in our office complex where we can post wisdom. I truly enjoyed the book and even pushed my studies aside to finish it! Life
    often have strange ways to take us on unexpected roads to our destiny. Thanks for all the wisdom in the book. It really addressed some of my blind spots and some of the more obvious one I struggle with. You captured so much to think about in an easy to read

    Recently a good friend in his wisdom imparted a gift to me before I departed on a long business trip with the message enjoy the Chocolates and the Cappuccino’s. The title intrigued me and during the quiet hours that followed allowed me to read this book
    in its entity and ample time to meditate on the complexities of life encountered by so many. It covers the erosion of those lives that stay in search and who eventually have the courage and determination to move from a dysfunctional lifestyle through reflection
    and personal mastery to one of virtues, values and a better understanding of who they are. It is definitely a recommended read to all! To me, I received a treasured gift and enjoyed the chocolates in the end! Elma Hancock CEO – Academy of Learning SA (Pty)

    Reading Blackboards, bubbles and cappuccinos was heartwarming, inspiring, and challenging and left me contemplating my work choices on another level. It made me evaluate my purpose and passions and weigh up my risk profile. I couldn’t put this book down,
    and it lured me back when I did – even after I had finished reading it. Gav Coetzee. Change, Growth and Strategy Consultant.

    I really felt as though your book was speaking to me personally and it touched on so many things that I've been struggling with for some time, the "Jo'burg disease" as I affectionately call it. Thank you again, you have certainly succeeded in affecting
    my life and my future and given me the courage to change my path. Genevieve v.d. Vyver. EY Corporate Finance (Pty) Ltd.
    Rob Katz commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    A great read to give you wisdom that will speak to you from the inside out. The book covers the typical challenges of a person on their journey to achieving a key goal or vision for their life (on their spiritual journey). It develops all the ideas of
    how to handle tough situations, have the intuition to go for the right opportunity, how to move out of your comfort zone and many other nuggets of wisdom. It needs to be read once quickly at one sitting to attain the overall framework of the book and then
    one needs to deeply immerse yourself into and mediate on each message/chapter so that the wisdom becomes internalize. It is easy to read and is for everybody! Rob Katz. Business Person and Academic.
    Hannelie Minnaar commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    Empowerment between two covers! It inspires me, with every read, to live a life that reflects my deepest values and to fully be the author of my own experience, creativity and most treasured dreams. Hannelie Minnaar. Tshwane University of Technology.

    One of the nicest things about this book is that one almost doesn't have to read it... The story flows at you from the pages at a light, gentle and yet powerful pace. You describe today's "Searching City Cafe Society" to the T! May the many that are still
    searching for happiness and meaning read this book and discover the peaceful surrendering simplicity that is one's destiny - even though it is surrounded by the structured franticness of today's modern existence. Bernu Henning. Ernst & Young.

    I so related to the challenges your protagonists were having to deal with, it was like looking into a magic mirror of possibility." Sheryl Cooke. Old Mutual.
    Thumiso Masoho commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    I recently purchased your book Blackboards, Bubbles & Cappucinos and it has completely turned my world around. I'm halfway through it and feeling quite awkward because its really touching some raw nerves. I'm not sure if this is normal, but I feel
    like reopening some things I'd long buried.. Here I am, self-employed and building a quite successful business, the epitome of what my plan was for freedom and self-expression, and yet I feel like a shell too afraid to really dig deep and take out/explore
    the dreams. Anyway, I just want to thank you for the book, its truly amazing. If I could get all my friends and family to read it I would. I bought the cards and have started a ritual where people in my office pick a card in the morning. Its catching on, and
    is really one of the most exciting parts of my day. .. Once again, great writing, I am giggling all throughout the book, and just finding your world so refreshing (I haven't bought or read a novel in about 5 years!) Well done.
    Jason Le Grange commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    Blackboards, Bubbles and Cappuccinos is a novel, but with a strong inspirational and self-help element. The story revolves around Robin, an executive toying with life in the corporate world, and Michael who has given it all up to follow his dream to run
    a coffee shop with a blackboard to write down inspirational lines. As Robin climbs up the corporate ladder and Michael surrenders to his dream, both have changes in their lives that they were not expecting. Interspersed into the story are Tearle’s pearls of
    wisdom or meditative mantras. Most of them you want to read over and over again, or write down in a special place to access when you are feeling down, undervalued and lost on your path. These inspirational sayings, the wisdom of Michael, mean that the book
    should not be read at face value as that of a novel, but appreciated in small doses before going to bed, or early in the morning. Reading the book this way allows the reader the maximum benefit to the various ideas that Tearle is hoping the reader to leave
    with. Many people, who are trapped in life, especially the corporate life filled with its daily stress, would do well to read this book and learn more about themselves in the process. The inspirational thoughts can be purchased separately as cards. Jason Le
    Grange. SA WRITING.
    Denny Piovesan. commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    Ruth’s book is magnificent. It takes spiritual intelligence and translates it in to everyday language. Words of wisdom are easy to quote, to give people the insight and ability to behave wisely is a gift, Ruth has done this with Blackboards, Bubbles and
    Ann Bennetts commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Blackboards, Bubbles & Cappuccinos and although it is an easy and fun read it provides one with great truths and insights. Ann Bennetts. Engen.
    Natalia Baker commented. 5 out of 5 stars
    I loved it. It was an absolutely delightful love story that moves at a racking pace. But it’s also about finding yourself and finding meaning in your life. A delightful read. Full of humour. Full of irony. (Natalia Baker. SABC 3 TV. Free Spirit.)
