Review:

"The best biography of Gandhi... I was enthralled from the first page...it changed my life" Sir Richard Attenborough "A monumental yet intimate biography, a vivid portrait of the man, the statesman and the saint" The Times "An important work" London Review of Books "Generous and conscientious... You feel Gandhi would have liked it that way" New York Herald Tribune "Equally successful in presenting the world figure with a cure for the world's woes and the plain little man with the kind look and smile" The Times
