"Gandhi the Man is a compelling and relevant account of the man many consider to be the most important figure of our age. It is perhaps the most accessible work on Gandhi that has yet been published." -- Argus-Courier
"It comes closer to giving some sense of how Gandhi saw his life than any other account I have read. . . . Gandhi mastered his own life took charge of his mind and his body. As a result he knew no fear, only great and undifferentiated love for the rest of creation. And so he was able to powerfully affect that creation." -- Bill McKibben, New York Post
"The illustrations are stunning, the biography vivid. Easwaran places Gandhi within a spiritual as well as historic context." -- Brain/Mind Bulletin
From the Publisher
In 1893, Mohandas Gandhi left India for South Africa at the age of 23 a man whose past was full of failure. Ten years later, called a saint even by those who opposed him, he grew to become the acknowledged leader of 400 million Indians in their struggle for independence. How did it happen? As a young man, Eknath Easwaran visited Gandhi not to observe his political style, he states, but, "because I wanted to know the secret of his power." It is this secret that Easwaran reveals to his readers. 192 pages
