About the Book

Nelson Mandela is one of the few men alive who can say he has genuinely changed the world – how we think about our place in society among other ethnic, political and religious groups and how perseverance, moral conscience and honest dialogue can help us achieve anything. Throughout his long life, he has faced struggles against odds and opposition many of us can only begin to understand, was imprisoned for decades for his beliefs, yet ultimately stood by them and saw them vindicated by a nation.
How to Think Like Mandela teaches us how he accomplished his achievements, his methods, his speeches, the many forms of opposition, both peaceful and non-peaceful, that he employed to reach his ends and why he fought in the way he did. Comprehensive and informative, this is the ideal book for admirers of this great man.
