This manual provides valuable tools such as the Life Framework, techniques for organizing your material, a reading list, memory prodders, and the writing hints that have been deemed worthy of special mention by the students. Hilda states: “My interest in working with the Life History stems from many years of professional involvement with the older people. Clearly the Life History helped them recall their abilities in surmounting great difficulties, providing a strong foundation for getting on with life with renewed vigor and enthusiasm. A completed Life History gives the writer grand rewards: an enthusiasm for getting on with life, a document for living for the next generations, and for your family and friends, an opportunity to know who you are.”

My Life in the New South Africa is written by the youth themselves, and gives a unique insight into the thoughts and concerns of South Africans under the age of 30. In 1996 the Quality of Life Monitoring Unit at the University of Natal held a letter-writing contest, and this book is a digest of the responses they received. Young people from across the nation wrote in-shack dwellers and suburban scholars, boarding school pupils and prison inmates. The diversity and distinctiveness of the rainbow nation's youth are represented here. This is their message to their fellow South Africans.
