More About the Author

Nelson Mandela was born in Transkei, South Africa, on 18 July 1918. He joined the African National Congress in 1944 and was engaged in resistance against the ruling National Party's apartheid policies after 1948 before being arrested in August 1962. In November 1962 he was sentenced to five years in prison and started serving his sentence at Robben Island Prison in 1963 before being returned to Pretoria, where he was to later stand in the Rivonia Trial. From 1964 to 1982, he was again incarcerated at Robben Island Prison and then later moved to Pollsmoor Prison, during which his reputation as a potent symbol of resistance to the anti-apartheid movement grew steadily.

Released from prison in 1990, Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was inaugurated as the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994. He is the author of the international bestsellers Long Walk to Freedom and Conversations with Myself.

The book is about a man, simply putting his opinions and experiences of life in such an intimate and heartfelt manner that it makes no simple man of Mandela, whom I have come to admire more and believe that the character in him is more than the legend that many speak of. I know of no man in this era who would have been more self sacrificing, so humble and so sincere in his course...yet so human.

This is a must read for all readers. To provoke our thinking and understanding of prejudices that we have towards people who are different in physic and behavior from what we perceive to be the norm.

This book is a must-read if you want to know the struggles of Africa, the plight of the mixed races finding themselves under domination. To get to know the man Mandela, through this book, teaches me so much about tenacity, commitment, determination and absolute integrity. Read it!

This book was so very inspiring.

It details the hardships Mandela endured and sacrifices he made to end the apartheid in South Africa. I was amazed at the oppression that actually existed for black Africans during this time. And the unbelievable sacrifices Mandela made in order to better the future for his people.

Until you read a first hand account of these national tragedies you can only imagine how hard things were during those times. And it's often harder than you imagined.

The book begins at the time he was born and his early life gives you a glimpse into tribal customs and beliefs. Just this information alone makes it an excellent read. The personal and public sacrifices Mandela made in the name of freedom from racial oppression, and the toll it took on him, are amazing. A definite must read for anyone that enjoys good autobiographies!

I was born and raised in South Africa and lived through the apartheid era in a household that did not voice negative views about our Black people so I was not exposed to its nasty side. I am ashamed that I did not see the other guy's misfortune and I can't think of a better person than Nelson Mandela to have brought this home to me. The book is a wonderful tribute to how one can be above the bad things of life and how he rose above the oppressive governments we had there who held the system in place with severe punishment for anyone who dared to "buck the system". This book is truly the best autobiography I have read. You cannot help but admire the man for his wisdom and lack of revengeful actions. I could not put the book down. I want everyone to read and benefit from this man's experience and his outlook on life. It is so uplifting.

This is quite long but most interesting and it fills in many gaps in my knowledge of what happened in South Africa during the time apartide was the way the country was being run. Nelson is a man of principle and convictions and really is an amazing person who did not become bitter despite the way he was mistreated. We saw the face that the South African Government presented to the rest of the world but he exposes the reality of living within the unjust and brutal system that is now only a memory for most who experienced it.
