It's crazy to think that most of this book was written in secret whilst Mandela was serving his prison sentence in Robben Island.
* I do slightly agree with some of the negative reviews that in Mandela's earlier life with regards to the Violence, he was part of isn't talked about in this book. Mandela never said he was without fault or perfect in every way. So this didn't discourage me from reading this book.
* So that can't really take away from the work that was done along with the struggles, the hope & change that he bought to many people's lives.
* Maybe his later accomplishments were redemption, for previous wrongs..
* A must read for anyone looking for something to show that anything is possible.
A very educational, interesting & inspirational read. That even though this is a large book at 554 Pages without the index and 558 with index was well worth my time spent reading it.
The hardback version has a map of South Africa Printed on the Front & Back of the book too, which is a lovely touch.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book, much better to read the auto-biography i think.
Haile Selassie said in his speech at the UN on 6th October 1963: ''That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; That until the colour of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained; And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed; Until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and good-will; Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes of all men, as they are in the eyes of Heaven; Until that day, the African continent will not know peace. We Africans will fight, if necessary, and we know that we shall win, as we are confident in the victory of good over evil''
Long LIVE Madiba, LONG LIVE!
