It is embarrassing to me that I have not finished this, but it needed t be returned to the library and I was not making any head way I think the most interesting thing about the book is the commentary at the beginning of each speech, giving perspective and an insight that just reading the speeches out of context would not provide.That being said, I think A Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela himself, while really long isinsightful This book was unique because it was a compilation of Nelson Mandela s own words within some historical context It was a great way to learn the character and growth of such an influential leader I definitely recommend this quick read book.
