Oh, look… Another one of those books about rules. Joy.Except that this one may be the defining factor that separates your dream from the reality it could be. Many of us have succeeded at being an entrepreneur. Many, many more have failed.Which side of that would you rather be onSure, entrepreneurship is often about breaking the rules. But there are also a number of them that you should follow if you want to survive long enough to see what happens when you do. A business should be more than just a venture – it should be an adventure! The difference between a successful journey, and a wasted one, is knowing when to do what. That is what this book is about. Not science, but experience. The rules of hustle.

Nothing in life is certain, except death and taxes – or so the expression goes. And over the past two decades South African criminals and tax dodgers have come to realise this truth the hard way.Tax sleuth Johann van Loggerenberg was at the centre of many of SARS’ high-profile cases during his time there. As far as SARS is concerned all forms of income are subjected to tax,even if by ill-gotten means. Whether you are a drug dealer from Durban, one of the hit men who shot Brett Kebble or soccer boss Irvin Khoza, you have to pay your dues!Van Loggerenberg relates the riveting inside stories of the investigations into businessmen like Dave King, Billy Rautenbach, Barry Tannenbaum and his ponzi scheme, and others. Over the years he got to know all the scams and dirty tricks in the book and he explains these in plain language.In these investigations the tax authority worked closely with the police, the NPA and the Directorate of Special Operations. However, after a few years SARS became the victim of its own success. In telling the stories of how tax evaders were caught, Van Loggerenberg also shows how the power struggle between different state departments and the phenomenon of state capture in recent years started crippling SARS.
