Learning straight from the mentor

by philosophicalengineer on Aug 19, 2010

I love this man and I love this book. I began to read "Mandela's Way" but it's one thing to hear how Mandela is from someone else and it's another to get into the actual mind of Mandela himself. That's not to say that it wasn't a good book but going straight to the source sheds the true wisdom and light (as all things in life). Thank you, Mr. Mandela for your wisdom and your inspiration.

A Master Piece

by Cats on May 30, 2007

By far one of the best books I have read! The book not only provided an introspective view of the racial policies in South Africa, but a glimpse of International and Global policies at it relates to race. Its' quite interesting to note that at that period of time, America, Europe and many of the Western World countries neglected to intervene it put an end to the Apartheid movement when such atrocities (modern day) were being encountered by Blacks. It puts a whole new angle on foreign policies and when/where it becomes convenient /appropriate to intervene in any given country. The book can be used as an excellent resource, a parallelism of what is happening in modern-day Rwanda, Zimbabwe, and Sierra Leone. Quite frankly, when you read the book, it is a sad notation where race relations is concerned in and around the world, we( collectively) play an active role in finding a solution. However, more importantly history constantly repeats itself, simply as a distortion of national pride and self-preservation of ones' ideology. Evidently, for me it served as an inspirational piece, a acknowledgment that our work as a people never ceases. In inspiration, I got great joy to know that despite Mandela's jailed time spent at Robben Island: Tennis, Reading and his thirst for Knowledge for his favorite past-time. Many of us make use of the time spent in freedom, and seldom take advantage of LIFE! His struggle, lifestyle serves as a great learning tool that even in the midst of adversity there is hope, more importantly there is a rainbow in every cloud!
