I have always felt he was a great man and someone to be admired, but this view was based on a very limited amount of information I was aware of. In reading these thoughts of Ghandi it highlighted his thinking and brings you a better understanding of the man.

I have always enjoyed the Attenborough film but this book gives real background into the man that walks off the boat 5 minutes into the film and how he was forged in the crucible of South Africa at the start of the 20th Century. It gives both an understanding of why he was so revered and also his own thinking. He is the first to be honest and admit his own weaknesses - something I would suspect is missing from the recent autobigraphies of leading politicians.

He believed in one thing above all else - Unity. Shame more do not follow his path.

Two things struck me about this autobiography: Firstly, another review starts "In his own words..." but to me it was much more than that. You can almost hear M K Gandhi's voice speaking to you as you read and even imagine that you are sitting by him, cross-legged on the ground in the shade of a tree, as he describes this episode or that to you.
Secondly, I was struck most strongly not by his ever more restricive diet, nor his adherence to non-violent means of achieving his goals, but his unending commitment to public service as a way of life.
The courage required to follow the path he chose leaves me in awe of the great man.

Not an easy read due to frequent use of Indian terms (for people's titles, events, etc). Interesting, though - easy to forget the racial situation in South Africa as it affected Indians rather than natives, and enlightening how conservative Indian culture was (still is?). Gandhi himself comes across as more than a little strict as regards his expectations of his family and employees - I really felt sorry for his poor long-suffering wife trying to keep up with his frequent fads.

Good to know the journey Ghandi took to become the man he was. Difficult when he refers to the Indian hoi poloi of the time, as they are not so well known. His inner turmoil and struggles to be the best person he could be is inspiring.

Although there are some minor grammatical errors the message and journey of Gandhi's pursuit of truth is inspiring and poignant. I would recommend this to anyone because the message conveyed can be transferred to anyone from any creed, religion or culture. This book makes me want to improve myself as a person and give more to society. Gandhi lead a life of selfless servitude to the oppressed and carried himself with dignity and humility like no other. A truly inspiring individual! A must read in my opinion.

Not so much an autobiography, more a philosophy of life! An account of Gandhi's attempts to live his life to his very exacting principles, complete with his failures. If only more of us could be so honest in our abilities or lack of them! Nearly finished reading this book and it's making me do some thinking. Give it a try!

This is a book, written by Gandhi himself, about how he came to believe in the issues for which he fought. Covering his growing up in India, his training in law in England,his fighting for justice for Indians in South Africa, and his growing non-violent involvement in the struggle for India's independence. Perhaps the key characteristics that comes through are his honesty and integrity. A remarkable book about a remarkable man!
