    Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world.

    History says: "Surprisingly honest autobiography."
    "a unique book , story of a great man of our time"

    What did you love best about Long Walk to Freedom?

    It is a true story,that after nearly three decades of imprisonment,abuse, and,mental torture ,a person can forgive, go forward and the country follow the lead.The answer to hatred is forgivness.It saved South Africa from civil war,an example to other states


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It is much more than a book.It transmit an attitude of forgivness.As a frequent visitor to South Africaiit deals in part with living history,peoples names in the book are often place names now


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be part of reading lists at schools to further understanding of different cultures and demonstates the overcoming of revenge and hatred is the way out of what can be a vicious cycle of cuture violence.It stimulates thought that had Gandhi lived the Indian continent might have been different now
