October 21, 2010 –Nelson Mandela’s newest book, Conversations with Myself, has received a great deal of coverage in the international press since its launch on October 12, 2010.
Media giants including the BBC, The Guardian and the The Daily Mail have reviewed and written about the book, which seeks to provide insight into the man behind the icon.
Conversations with Myself, which was released worldwide in 22 editions and 20 languages, takes the reader on an intimate journey through the life of Mr Mandela, from the time the politician in him was born, through the 27 years he spent in prison for the liberation of his country, to his inspiring role on the world stage.
The book contains extracts from letters written in the darkest hours of his years in prison, as well as from an unfinished follow-up to his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom.
The unique archive of Mr Mandela’s thoughts was compiled by the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
