Product Description

Review

"If we are to accomplish anything in this world, it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievements of others. Richard Stengel is one of those people who readily grasps this idea ... He has shown remarkable insight into the many complex leadership challenges still facing the world today and all the individuals in it. Everyone can learn from it." (Nelson Mandela)

"A beautiful book - even better than Long Walk to Freedom - and even more inspiring" (Sir Richard Branson)

"There is no man I admire more than Nelson Mandela. Rick Stengel's wise and moving book captures the Nelson Mandela I have been privileged to know. But reading Mandela's Way gave me new insights and inspiration. I am confident it will give the same gifts to others. I was inspired anew, and I know that others will be too." (Bill Clinton)

"Nelson Mandela has walked a long road and Richard Stengel's artful distillation of the lessons learned along the way is a gift. Through anecdotes both heartwarming and heartbreaking, this uplifting, inspiring volume makes Mandela's hard-won wisdom accessible to anyone who wants to play a part in making the world a better place." (Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea)

"This delightfully inspiring book is a philosophical guide to how we can aspire to achieve Mandela's grace and how we can draw upon his greatness as a model for the comportment of our lives each day." (Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Harvard University)

This book is an easier, more gentle read than the tomb that is his biography. I love this book. It tells his story through snapshot experiences and encounters with certain individuals in his life which have changed him and formed his values today. It is very moving.

As a native born South African I read this with great interest. It was truly fascinating and like the autobiography of Nelson Mandela it gave a great insight to this man who became a legend in his own life time. It was a book that causes you to think and imagine how, why and what this great human endured. His legacy was living every day of his life and learning from it as he went on.

I really enjoyed this book for many reasons but I think the obvious one was that the writer was able to convey that although Nelson Mandela is considered a hero amongst other adorations, it reminds us that he is also just a man that had a cause worth fighting for and so many people with causes, it also mentions his many sacrifices that such people has given.

This would be a good book for people who aspire to be leaders in their field. There are some golden nuggets in this honest appraisal of this imperfect man who has had such a huge influence for good in his life.

It was nice to read the personal story of a great man as Mandela. It could have been printed on less paper as the lines are very wide and the margins are very big. Or could have contain more stories from his life.

This book truly captures the man that left prison to lead a nation on the brink of collapse yet he saved the nation and brought it out the other side a much better nation. Really brilliant book on all facets of Nelson Mandela's character after his release. Richard Stengel again wrote a book that is really easy to read yet it talks to so many aspects of understanding the man that was Nelson Mandela.

I'm currently working on a Mandela project and found Stengel's book to be the best introduction to the man and the forces which made him. Stengel spent almost three years in Mandela's company, thus his insights are both profound and have authority. The book itself is an inspiration. I highly recommend it.

First of all i'd like to say this is easy reading but in a nice way without being boring. It is extremely realistic about the events that unfolded that were not always pleasant. It gives an honest view about Nelson Mandela. The author seems to capture the Nelson magic and at times it is really emotional but in an inspiring way. The way he has devised the chapters is great each chapter is based on Mandela's principles. Beautifully written and all I can say is "What a man!"

My favourite quote is "Courage is not the absence of fear" believe me though there are many more great ones.

I would highly recommend this book. Happy reading!
