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.

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.
Legal Thrillers, crime, fiction. humor and a bit of management sprinkled with some self improvement. All through Audible.
This biography ends when the real Gandhi begins. So this book is about the slow progression of the discovery of Gandhi by Gandhi. Experiments with food, law, absenteeism,fasting....and freedom. But may be one has to just get it out of the bucket list since it is about a great man!
A bold description. It shows how a common man arise to great humenly possible level.
High for content, low for performance.
He mispronounces every 4th word. No idea what he's saying.
Only one character mattered - Mohandas K. Gandhi
I would have selected another narrator. Not because of his skill which was excellent, his ability to read Indian names made it at times difficult to understand. An individual who was from India may have made the listening more enjoyable.
Wonderful book - enjoyed it very very much.
This is the best autobiography I have ever read. I hope a person of like this would born in Syria, Iraq or Palestine/Israel who could really bring in radical change in the mind sets of people. I know it is only a dream.
Gandhi because of his simplicity and love for truth.
Same "My experiments with Truth"
Wonderful book. I couldn't do any thing until I completely listed to this book.
