Editorial Reviews site. A good deal of this autobiography was written secretly while Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years on Robben Island by South Africa's apartheid regime. Among the book's interesting revelations is Mandela's ambivalence toward his lifetime of devotion to public works. It cost him two marriages and kept him distant from a family life he might otherwise have cherished. Long Walk to Freedom also discloses a strong and generous spirit that refused to be broken under the most trying circumstances--a spirit in which just about everybody can find something to admire.
Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and the first democratically elected president of South Africa, Mandela began his autobiography during the course of his 27 years in prison.

I can't fully express in words what this books means to me. I put off reading it for years. Mandela was released from prison in my college years and so I knew who he was, and what he accomplished on a very surface level. I always knew I wanted to know his life';s story on a deeper level. The writing is forceful, and beautiful and honest.
I received inspiration, education and amazement from reading this book. Again, I can't truly do this autobiography justice in a review.
If you have EVER had any inclination or interest in reading this? Trust me! It is better than you thought it could be. Let me end by saying that the best way I can describe this book is that after reading it, it made me determined to be a better person! Hardcover Verified download. This was incredible!
This book shed so much insight on Mandela's thoughts and his reasonable outlook throughout his life that I gained an enormous respect for him and his cause. I've been really in the dark about racial prejudice- maybe because I wanted to stay ignorant to something I cannot understand nor fathom. We have come so far in triumph against these injustices of humanity, though if not enough of us are paying attention then we are doomed to repeat history.
This is one of the top most inspirational books of all time. Powerful in forgiveness and progressive!
The school system needs to throw out the boring, pointless books of the past and introduce ones of more depth- thought provoking. If children of today were taught to reason as Mandela did in this book, can one imagine what powerful leaders we would have tomorrow? A must read! I am a white South Aftican who grew up in the apartheid era of South Africa.
As with most of the white peers of my age I didn't know what apartheid really meant. I had also never heard the name Mandela until I went to university in A student came up to me carrying a petition in his hand and asked me to sign it.
It was to free Nelson Mandela. This student told me a little about the history behind Mandela's imprisonment. I was young, obviously impressionable, but most of all I was outraged!
I signed the petition and went home. When my relatively liberal parents heard what I had done they were very upset, and worried, as at that time any type of support for the ANC, and of course Mandela, was illegal.
Growing up in the 60's in a country which was rife with the propoganda that the government wanted us to hear, and believe,I didn't know much about how the majority of my country lived, nor how badly they were treated. Many years later, when I worked in the medical field, I was very privileged to get the opportunity to personally meet the president. I took my hardcover edition of "The Long Walk to Freedom" with me and asked him to autograph it, which he did with extreme grace.
Years later I read the very same book from cover to cover which he had signed. The book is long, and at that stage in my life I couldn't take it all in. Now that Mandela has passed I decided to get the kindle version, as I didn't want to risk ruining my precious signed edition.
