I really enjoyed this book. Mr Mandela is such an incredible man who has done so much for South Africa. The only thing that spoiled it for me a little bit was Danny Glover's strong American accent where he completely mispronounces some places, names and words. It made it hard to follow at times. As an actor I would have thought he could have gotten some help with that. Someone could have written words phonetically so that it would be easier to understand, for instance where certain things happened or who he was referring to. It is still a great book that I would recommend to anyone.
