Long Walk to Freedom - Nelson Mandela's Autobiography

Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa's antiapartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality.

LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history's greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela tells the extraordinary story of his life--an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph

    Alright, tis time for me to fess up... By the time we meet this friday, I will only be half way through the book :P

    But I know Rachel Ny has finished. So if you've also finished the book, at least you'll have one other person who'll know what you are talking about.

    In any case, I'm excited to see you guys and talk about the magnificent journey this human being has gone through.

    Hey nerds!

    I hope you are enjoying the book so far. It's touching and inspiring. And actually, I also often find it funny (from stories of getting in trouble running away from home to that whole circumcision ordeal.. ouch!!)

    Anyway, I just want to say I'm looking forward to meeting all of you.

    The meet up is a month away. So get the book and get started if you haven't already. And don't worry if you don't finish it by the time we meet. Trust me, you won't be the only one. And it will still be enjoyable to chat about it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
