When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall - think of it, always.

In 1999, this book was designated as one of the 100 Most Important Spiritual Books of the Twentieth Century by HarperCollins Publishers.

A holy man to Hindus, a hero to Muslims, and a criminal to the British, Mohandas K. Gandhi was an inspiring figure of the 20th century, a man whose quest to live in accord with God's highest truth led him to initiate massive campaigns against racism, violence, and colonialism.

From his youthful rebellion against vegetarianism, to his successful law practice in South Africa, his struggle with his own sexual excesses, and his leadership of the movement to free India from British rule, Gandhi describes the story of his life as a series of spiritual experiments and explains how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and inspired countless other nonviolent struggles.

    " I thought I would enjoy this a lot more than I did. It was a bit too repetitive for me. There were some wonderful quotable quotes, and Gandhi led a very impressive life, but I was disturbed a bit with what I felt was missing. While he wrote endlessly of his diet and why he did or did not eat x,y, and z, he wrote precious little of his wife and children. He seems to have spent much of his marriage separated from them while pursuing education and a career. I was also a little exasperated with the Brahmacharya vow and his constant harping on it, though I find his observance of Brahmacharya impressive. What I did love were his teachings of tolerance and organized resistance, civil disobedience, etc. I enjoyed in particular his stories of practicing law. Whatever your background, there is a lot to learn from Gandhi's perspectives and way of life. Definitely worth a read, but my word, I'm glad it's over. I found it rather long-winded...perhaps because I felt like he was trying to indoctrinate me. "

    " I learned that Gandhi was pretty neurotic, especially about sex and food. Also that he got married when he was thirteen. "

    " I enjoyed this book. I was worried it would be tedious, but he does a wonderful job of summarizing and keeping the reader interested. It was easy to read and the chapters are all fairly short(less than 5 pages.) He also gives other books to read if your are interested more in what happened. My favorite part of the book is that all the proceeds go to his foundation. This book made me want to simplify, keep my house clean and really enjoy life and help other people. "
