But Nelson Mandela was not always elderly or benign. In Young Mandela, David James Smith takes us deep into the heart of racist South Africa to paint a portrait of the Mandela that many have forgotten: the committed revolutionary who left his family behind to live on the run, adopting false names, and organizing the first strikes to overthrow the apartheid state. Young Mandela lifts the curtain on an icon’s first steps to greatness.

Some good details
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would suggest Long Walk first because it is Mandela's story, but then this if they are still curious because it includes some other points of view, especially the first marriage.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would have described more context about South Africa
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
I always find Audible books a little slow and wish there was a feature for 1.1 speed, not just 1.5.
What else would you have wanted to know about David James Smith’s life?
Any additional comments?
I would love an audible biography of Desmond Tutu.
