Publisher's Summary

The riveting memoirs of the outstanding moral and political leader of our time, Long Walk to Freedom brilliantly recreates the drama of the experiences that helped shape Nelson Mandela's destiny. From his beginning in the Transkei to his being taken to Robben Island, this is the remarkable story of how a man rose so far, only to be sentenced to life imprisonment. Emotive and compelling, this is the story of an epic life.
This audiobook includes a foreword written and read by Kofi Annan, Nelson Mandela's Presidential Oath of Office, an afterword from Sharon Gelman, and an interview with Long Walk to Freedom collaborator Richard Stengel.


What the Critics Say

"Burns with the luminosity of faith in the invincible nature of human hope and dignity...Unforgettable" (Andre Brink)

Inspirational, inspirational, inspirational.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything about Nelson Mandela makes you want to be a better person.

What does Michael Boatman and Kofi Annan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I am also under the impression that Nelson Mandela spoke with Boatman's voice, that's how impressive this was.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both, all the time.

Any additional comments?

A disservice to a superb book

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration was absolutely appalling. A terrible almost condecending attempt at a South African accent.
