    1. J'ai commandé ce livre en occasion pour un petit prix et étonnamment il est arrivé en bon état et à temps ! Je recommande vraiment ce beau livre !

    2. The latest and probably last book written or at least designed by Nelson Mandela himself. It is a trip back into our past because he is our past. As far as I remember Nelson Mandela was standing there as the "eternal" prisoner of South Africa. We signed petitions, we demonstrated, we read poems demanding his liberation, we took part in exhibitions to express our solidarity. And one day he was free and he has remained, even when he was the President of South Africa, or when we can see him in a fi [...]

    3. Very instructive for our small live.Can also help to enjoy our love.Great messages for hope and forgiveness.Powerful guide for tolerance.

    4. Conversations with Myself by Nelson Mandela is far from a conventional biography. Actually one could make the case its not a biography at all, but rather a collection of writings and interviews that give one an admittedly pretty good view of Nelson Mandela’s mindset both as a fighter for a multi-ethnic South Africa, political prisoner, and towards the end of the book the respected president of South Africa.Fair warning, while there exists a definite attempt to group everything together by cert [...]

    5. This is a truly important book. Mandela is as one would expect, honest and thoroughly admirable in every way. This is deeply significant recent history and a man with real vision and decency, which lord knows we could use a great deal more of today. The only reason I haven't marked this 5 star is because the writing is not terrific. However, what he has to say, his descriptions and explanations of what he and South Africa went through are so vital and true and nuanced, that this is a must rea [...]

    6. This book is beautiful. It was the picture that caught my initial attention over all the other books by or about Mandela. The detail of the close-up picture of a smiling Mandela, with a face full of beauty and wisdom is breathtaking. Of course I'm reading it, but it is definitely of table-top quality. And it is a large book, bigger than I thought. The content, his conversations and words of wisdom so inspiring. I'm glad I bought this book. I've actually bought another one as a gift for a [...]

    7. Purchased this book for a dear friend. So glad to see that President Obama wrote the introduction. She loves the book. On her recommendation, I am purchasing a copy for myself, being that I am a Nelson Mandela fan.

    8. Nelson Mandela's Conversations with Myself takes the reader through the meanders in the life of a man widely acclaimed as the world's longest-serving prisoner. The story of Mandela's twenty-seven-year incarceration on Robben Island, Pollsmoor and Victor Verster prisons has become the creation myth of the Rainbow Nation. In 454 pages, the author retraces his life from humble beginnings to the pinnacle of power in South Africa.Conversations with Myself tells the story of a living legend; it chroni [...]
