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.
"Burns with the luminosity of faith in the invincible nature of human hope and dignity...Unforgettable" (Andre Brink)
"Enthralling...Mandela emulates the few great political leaders such as Lincoln and Gandhi, who go beyond mere consensus and move out ahead of their followers to break new ground" (Donald Woods in the Sunday Times)

Inspirational, inspirational, inspirational.
Everything about Nelson Mandela makes you want to be a better person.
I am also under the impression that Nelson Mandela spoke with Boatman's voice, that's how impressive this was.
Both, all the time.
A disservice to a superb book
The narration was absolutely appalling. A terrible almost condecending attempt at a South African accent.
