I've been listening to a couple of titles a month since December 2007 and this is the most moving audiobook of them all. I decided to listen after watching the film 'Invictus'. That's a great film, but this is so much more.
This book provides real insight into the people involved in the creation of the modern South Africa, as it's based on personal interviews with them, including Mandela.
I realise South Africa isn't perfect and there are many challenges for it to overcome, but this book, at moments, really filled me with joy. As I look at the conflicts in the world today, it provides real hope that if South Africans can tackle the problems of apartheid, without a bloody civil war, then it's possible other countries can also find resolution and peace.
As for Mandela, as John Carlin points out, he's not a saint. But, it is his behaviour as a human being, who treats all people with respect, which I found so inspiring.
Hats off to Saul Reichlin for his impressive narration and characterisation of the voices.
