Editorial Reviews

Review

A stirring collection of quotes from the Nobel Peace Prize winner. The quotes are inspirational and moving, regardless of any prior knowledge. The full script of Mandela's Nobel acceptance speech from 1993 rounds out this brief yet important look into the mind of a man determined to break apartheid regardless of the personal cost. (Kirkus)

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 for many years before being arrested in August 1962. Mandela was incarcerated for more than twenty-seven years, 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 bestseller Long Walk to Freedom.

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.

I never paid too much attention to Mr. Mandela before he died. After reading the book I am glad to be aware there are people in the world who can overcome so much and turn out to be even better. Wish there were more like him in the world and with this book we can aspire to his level.

I ofter wonder what makes a person so insightful. Nelson Mandela had a lot of time to think in prison, so I imagine that his thoughts were sometimes futuristic. The man will be an icon for many, many years to come.

What's better than to hear Nelson Mandela's own words and thoughts. I think this should be included in US Studies in our school system.
