This book's one purpose is to promote the author's philosophy of objectivism, which clearly resonates with some people in this day and age, but in my mind is an extreme point of view. Would recommend you understand this philosophy before you buy the book. Wikipedia has a good article.
This book is like a series of greeting cards, all with the same message - "Don't be a mediocre rule follower, be an artist, be extraordinary." There's very little evidence to support the idea that one can simply decide to be extraordinary and pull it off. No biographical stories. Nothing. Just greeting card platitudes.
I agree with the other reviewer. I'm only about an hour into this book and think I'm done. The reader's accent is very thick. I have to turn the audio up pretty loud and listen closely to get understand what he's saying. The book appears to be a hodgepodge of Mandela's writings with no discernable theme or structure. A real disappointment.
