"There is no man I admire more than Nelson Mandela. Rick Sten-gel's wise and moving book captures the Nelson Mandela I have been privileged to know. But reading "Mandela's Way "gave me new insights and inspiration. I am confident it will give the same gifts to others. I was inspired anew, and I know others will be too."--President Bill Clinton
"This delightfully inspiring book is a philosophical guide to how we can aspire to achieve Mandela's grace and how we can draw upon his great-ness as a model for the comportment of our lives each day."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Harvard University
"Nelson Mandela has lived every word of his teaching, whatever the cost. His abiding lesson is about forgiveness. "Mandela's Way "takes us into the inner life of one of the most of important heroes of the century. There are lessons here that could radically change the way you live your life."--Deepak Chopra, author of "The Ultimate Happiness Prescription"
""Mandela's Way "is a timely and welcome reminder of this great man's political genius, personal integrity, and peerless instinct for survival and triumph. Every world leader should keep "Mandela's Way "within easy reach."--Tom Brokaw
"Here is the wisdom of the world's greatest moral leader brilliantly distilled by a wonderful writer. From the time they spent working closely together on Mandela's memoirs, Rick Stengel draws fifteen big life lessons plus hundreds of smaller insights, while also giving us an intimate and astonishingly honest look at this inspiring human being."--Walter Isaacson, author of "Steve Jobs "and "Einstein"
""Mandela's Way" is an electrically exciting, direct, and vivid way of making greatness tangible, human and complex. Richard Stengel has honed all the elegance and lucidity of thirty years of brilliant cultural and political writing into a book to illuminate, to inspire--and to endure."--Pico Iyer, author of "The Open Road" and "The Lady and the Monk"
