There are so many books about Nelson Mandela, but what I like about this one is that it comes at it from the point of view of his family which underlines the huge sacrifice he made but the family did too. Gillian Slovo, in her autobiography, touches on how it felt to be a child of those who fought apartheid, and in that book, she feels Nelson Mandela is one who understood. We get a taste of that here with the birthdays unmarked and school routines disrupted. It is easy with heroes to forget that they come from this wider family picture so I feel this is a useful book to add to ones family or school collection.
