Comedian Trevor Noah's book, Born A Crime: Stories from a South African childhood received a glowing review from wealthy philanthropist Bill Gates, who hailed Trevor's mother as a hero and sang the comedian's praises.

Trevor could not hide his excitement as he shared the review of his best seller book Born A Crime on his social media.

The review was done by Bill for Time.com and in it he writes how the book, which reflects on Trevor's life, does a great job of cementing Trevor's name as comedian.

"Much of Noah’s story of growing up in South Africa is tragic. Yet in Noah's hands, these moving stories are told in a way that will often leave you laughing. His skill for comedy is clearly inherited from his mother," writes Bill Gates.
