In 1999, this book was designated as one of the "100 Most Important Spiritual Books of the Twentieth Century" by HarperCollins Publishers.
A holy man to Hindus, a hero to Muslims, and a criminal to the British, Mohandas K. Gandhi was an inspiring figure of the 20th century, a man whose quest to live in accord with God’s highest truth led him to initiate massive campaigns against racism, violence, and colonialism.
From his youthful rebellion against vegetarianism, to his successful law practice in South Africa, his struggle with his own sexual excesses, and his leadership of the movement to free India from British rule, Gandhi describes the story of his life as a series of spiritual “experiments” and explains how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and inspired countless other nonviolent struggles.

Someone who is looking for a much more indepth understanding of Ghandhi's life, and who has a better understanding of Indian government and history.
narrator was awesome!
I got the audiobook and really had to foght to finish it. My favorite books are one's that tell about others success, but did not find this book interesting at all. I do feel like Gandhi's story is important and admit I missed a fair bit from drifting in and out of attention as it struggled to grab my focus. The massive Indian names also confused me as I had no idea who anyone was haha.
I am Indian. I have read his original Gujarati autobiography. I have also read its official translation by Mahadev Desai. This audio book refreshed my reading. If you worship truth, you may like this.
A bold description. It shows how a common man arise to great humenly possible level.
