About the Author:

Mohandas Gandhi was born in Western India in 1869. After studying law in London and living in South Africa for many years, he returned to India in 1915, where he spent the rest of his life campaigning for India's independence and promoting his fundamental principles of truth and non-violence. He died in 1948.

From AudioFile:

To his credit, Bill Wallace reads this book with no attempt at an accent. To do so easily could devolve into parody. So he plays it straight. Nonetheless, for the first several minutes of listening one has to get used to not hearing an Indian accent. The book covers Gandhi's life from youthful rebellion to his law practice in South Africa and his leadership of the movement to free India from British rule. Gandhi explains how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance. His life propels the work, so Wallace does not try to artificially embellish it with vocal bombast. Yet he reads with emotion as befits the writing. He pronounces Indian words and locations clearly and with facility. R.C.G. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
