This week's Exclusive Books feature on The Redi Tlhabi Show presented Books of World History (Part 2) to help you choose what to put on your reading list.

Redi and her book feature co-host, Jenny Crwys-Williams, asked Professor Bill Nasson, a history lecturer at Stellenbosch University, to give one history book that every South African should read, and he chose two - with good reason.

He recommended Letters To Lily by Alan MacFarlane

... and The Summit: The Biggest Battle of the Second World War - fought behind closed doors by Ed Conway.
