Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Should be read by every person alive.” Boston Globe
“One of the most extraordinary political tales of the twentieth century and well worth the investment for anyone truly interested in the genesis of greatness.” Financial Times (London)
“Narrator Michael Boatman has a gentle but insistent voice that suggests a certain grace and is well suited for the memoir of this worldwide symbol of persistence and justice…Mandela is lionized still as the unflinching opponent of the apartheid government in South Africa…This is his story, told in his way, and we must take notice. Boatman’s authentic pronunciation of South African tribes and other words also lends great credibility to his reading. He narrates at an unhurried pace and lingers on certain words throughout the book in order to let us inhale Mandela’s meanings.” AudioFile
