I just recently finished ‘Richard Branson – Losing my Virginity’, and man is that book awesome. Richard Branson is like my new hero! Full of energy and spirit! Show’s how stuff’s done and how to take a stand where it’s important, and the way he addresses the social issues.. Brilliant!
Now I m on Nelson Mandela, his name popped up a couple of times in Richard’s book, and sounded interesting. I’ve read about him before, about his struggles in South Africa, and how he pushed himself to do the right things. So it was time I properly read about him.
The reviews on this book are awesome as well. Here’s a few:
Irresistible…. One of the few political autobiographies that’s also a page turner
Chris Goodrich – Los Angeles Times Books Review
Riveting…. Both a brilliant description of a diabolical system and a testament to the power of the spirit to transcend it.
Michael R. Winston – Washington Post Book World
The Nelson Mandela who emerges from the Long walk to freedom is considerably more human than the icon of legend…. The narrative is enlivened by the intimate detail and introspection.
Bill Keller – New York Times Books Review.
