Mandela's Way - Lessons to Life

We long for heroes but have too few. Nelson Mandela is perhaps the last pure hero on the planet. For nearly three years Time magazine editor Richard Stengel collaborated with Mandela on his autobiography and travelled with him everywhere. Eating with him, watching him campaign, hearing him think out loud, Stengel came to know all the different sides of this complex man. He became a cherished friend and colleague. Now he has distilled countless hours of intimate conversation with Mandela into fifteen essential life lessons. In Mandela’s Way, he recounts the moments in which ‘the grandfather of South Africa’ was tested and shares the wisdom he learned: why we should keep our rivals close, why courage is more than the absence of fear, and why the answer is not always either/or but often ‘both’. Woven into these life lessons are remarkable stories – of Mandela’s childhood as the protege of a tribal king, of his early days as a freedom fighter, of the twenty-seven-year imprisonment that could not break him, and of his new and fulfilling marriage at the age of eighty. This profoundly inspiring book captures the spirit of this extraordinary man – warrior, martyr, husband, statesman, and moral leader – and spurs us to look within ourselves, reconsider the things we take for granted, and contemplate the legacy we’ll leave behind.
