Product description

Review

Here is an autobiography more captivating than fiction and more stimulating than romantic adventure. It is the most revealing study of the human soul that I have ever read.
The Christian Century
An absorbing book that stands alone in frankness and plain honesty...Its place among the classics of autobiography cannot be in doubt.
The New Statesman
An amazingly frank self-revelation of the greatest and humblest modern man.
The Annals
It is...only by reading the whole long and detailed day-by-day record that readers can sense the magic of Gandhi s being and discover him fully.
Saturday Review
(Gandhi s) autobiography remains invaluable for its account of the shaping of a new path to collective resistance to injustice.
From the foreword by Sissela Bok"

About the Author

Mohandas K Gandhi was born in 1869 to Hindu parents. He studied law in London and was admitted to the Inner Temple in 1891. He worked to improve the rights of immigrant Indians in South Africa, returning to India in 1915 to take up the struggle for independence from Britain. Gandhi never wavered in his belief in non-violent protest and Independence, in 1947, was not a military victory but a triumph of human will. In January 1948 Gandhi assassinated as he walked to take evening prayers.

Gandhi turns out to be much deeper than I expected after reading this book. It covers a vast array of subjects, all dealt with with the most amazing modesty, as Gandhi literally experiments his way through subjects like dietetics, religion, equality and non-violent protest towards his success in the later years that made him world-famous. Buy it now, and learn from it.

Not quite what I expected. A lot of info which has given me lots to think about. My opinion of Gandhi kept changing as I went from chapter to chapter. I think it deserves another reading.

It is very interesting to read what the leaders of the past think about the world they lived in. Did the world learn any lesson?
