Written by the co-author of international bestseller Long Walk to Freedom, Mandela's Way presents fifteen powerful lessons on life and leadership based on the life and work of Nelson Mandela, whose fight against apartheid in South Africa has become an enduring example of resistance against injustice and oppression. A recipient of the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, Mandela is a man who truly changed the course of world history and is arguably the most inspirational figure of the past century.The result of many hours of discussion between the author Richard Stengel and Mandela, Mandela's Way features a series of essential lessons, such as 'Nothing is black and white' and 'Courage is not the absence of fear - it's inspiring others to move beyond it'. Stengel spent two years with Mandela working on his bestselling autobiography Long Walk to Freedom, and through that process became a close friend.Written with the blessing of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, to which the author will donate a percentage of his royalties, Mandela's Way is an inspirational book of wisdom that will encourage people of all ages to look within themselves to improve their lives, to reconsider the things they take for granted, and to think about the legacy they leave behind.
