Book Review – The Wisdom Of Jozi Shore


by Anton Taylor (Macmillan) ISBN 978177010361 0

Anton Taylor, International Man of Movember, SA’s Van Wilder, the co-creator of YouTube phenomenon Jozi Shore, counts Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny K as his role models, Ed Hardy and the News Café manager as fashion icons. And, yes, he is on steroids —thanks for asking.

Not to be outdone by the Kardashians, One Direction, Loui Fish and other inconsequential celebrities, he’s written a book celebrating his own awesomeness. The chapter on spirituality is the shortest—the one on bodybuilding the longest. Ripped abs are the only altar his boys bow down to. His perfect bint, he admits, is three chunders away from anorexia.

In his new book, Taylor reveals his hilarious insider take on his alter-ego as a Jo-Bugger, takes a swipe at Cape Town’s pretentious hipsters and bares more than just his biceps to Mandy Weiner in an exclusive foreword. It’s the perfect gag gift for your boet-in-law or gym-obsessed nephew.
