Editorial Reviews

'The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling but in rising every time we fall'- Nelson Mandela

Celebrated as an international hero upon his release from prison in 1990, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela is one of the 20th century's towering leaders. Mandela rose from poverty, against overwhelming odds, to become president of the richest, most culturally diverse country in Africa. He endured more than 27 years in jail for trying to overthrow a white police state, becoming the world's most famous political prisoner. In 1994, he led vote-less black South Africans from the racist apartheid period into a democratic era. He is an educated man, a lawyer, a democrat, a shrewd observer of human behavior, a disciplined politician who led a military uprising against an inhuman system, a best-selling and wealthy author, and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Mandela personifies struggle. He continues to speak out against global injustice with the extraordinary vigour and resilience of a man who spent nearly three decades of his life behind bars. He has sacrificed his private and family life for his people, and remains South Africa's best known and most beloved hero. But there is much myth around Mandela. His real story is, in many ways, more compelling than the romantic myth.

Featuring interviews with Nobel Prize Winners Nadine Gordimer and F.W. De Klerk; Robben Island co-prisoners Ahmed Kathrada, Mac Maharaj and Tokyo Sexwale; Mandela biographers Alister Sparks, Anthony Sampson and Charlene Smith; and Mandela's friends and family, THE LIFE AND TIMES OF NELSON MANDELA reveals a story unknown to the world beyond his inner circle. Mandela talks of his love of children, how apartheid affected him, facing the death sentence, how he survived prison, won over his enemies, and overcame prejudice. He also speaks about the pain of his marriage to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, with whom he had two daughters. In an interview, Winnie talks about her first meeting with Mandela, the last time they were home together, and how she survived torture and scandal

I have every book and video on Madiba so this was just another added to my knowledge base. I found it most informative and would recommend it to anyone with a desire for authentically based information.
