Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9–These biographies are detailed but flawed. The chronologically arranged chapters cover major events in the men's lives, such as Growing up in Gujarat (Gandhi) and Acts of Defiance (Mandela). Numerous interesting photos and illustrations are included. Unfortunately, both books contain errors, such as incomplete Web site addresses in the Works Cited sections and incorrect quotes. Pretoria, where Gandhi lived for a year, is omitted from the map of South Africa, and the reason given for Mandela's separation from his first wife is not the same as that given in his autobiography. For books on Gandhi, stick with John B. Severance's Gandhi: Great Soul (Clarion, 1997). Most titles on Mandela for this audience aren't any better than this one.–Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

This biography of Nelson Mandela was my 13-year old daughter's introduction to the world of Apartheid. She found the book, and its depiction of Mandela's sacrifices and extraordinary acheivements, inspirational.

Great book. I like the way the vocabulary is introduced and explained in boxes on the pages. It makes it easier for the kids. My daughter appreciates that very much.

Had no idea of really who he was, gave me a brief overview but got me interested in who he is and made me want to read more about him

Very informative book. Such a complex man. Good to see his story told for this younger generation. We must never forget his fight for freedom.
