Publisher Description

"Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand history – and then go out and change it." –President Barack Obama  
Nelson Mandela was one of the great moral and political leaders of his time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. After his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela was at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa's antiapartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is still revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality.

Long Walk to Freedom is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history's greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela told the extraordinary story of his life -- an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph. 
The book that inspired the major motion picture Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Personality

This is the most incredible story of recent history. As this great man states at the end of this book- "perhaps the deepest parts of oppression bring out the characteristics to overcome..." the story told in this book and the people described is nothing short of the story of the founding fathers of the United States. These people are personalities, people who through the the most inconceivable circumstances, motivated by an unexplainable passion for equality and change, have actually really prevailed and created the most valuable item known to humanity...a free thinking and living piece of land for its citizens in which to properly reside.

P.S -- I do believe there were once Tigers in Africa ;)
