Review:

Mail & Guardian

… simplified version, aimed at the neoliterate, or just those who don’t fancy picking up the huge and heavy original version.

Bookchat

Told in crisp, straightforward style, this is in fact the history of South Africa from 1918 tot today – from Mandela’s point of view. Blunt, but without harshness, here is the life of a truly remarkable man.

Not worth the buy.

The book is an ABRIDGED version, which is 15x thinner than the original book, therefore not a very friendly read, as there are just excerpts from the original book that one has to piece together. Bought it thinking it was the full version.

Very good

I was happy with this purchase

Please read carefully!

This is not the complete autobiography, but rather an abridged version. In my opinion, not worth the R70.
