I bought this book a few years ago as I am so fascinated by the life of Gandhi. I think he was a great hero, actually so much more than that. Anyway, I enjoy quote books, and this is one of the most inspiring and thought-provoking examples I have encountered in a long while. And, it contains two bonuses: a forward from Desmond Tutu and a brief, but comprehensive biography of Gandhi's life. One of my favorite Gandhi quotes from this book is "Religions are different roads converging to the same po...more
This is a small gift book that my husband got from a friend for his birthday last week. I cannot put it down and have been carrying it with me. The layout really speaks to me, I want to mark it up with word journaling and art journaling. Just what I have needed during the holiday season. I'm also ordering it for gifts and ordering the rest of the series.

Has the story started at the right place?

I must say I wasn't expecting much depth to be in the first few sentences of the book but it does start of very well it describes his life and how he began his journey, how his beliefs grew into something inspirational. How his words inspired others to do well and how others decided to rebel on his beliefs on nonviolence actions and how his words infuriated others. People believed that without violence a point couldn't be said across and taken in a seriou...more
"...Gandhi was assassinated at his morning prayer meeting. The man who preached tolerance and nonviolence died instantly from three bullet wounds." Wonderfully insightful and tragically beautiful.
Wow so much to learn from this man who helped to shape a common revolution of commoners who ended up helping to bring down an entire system....and he did suffer alot, but he was able to make sure that the common people and others would be welcomed into his's fascinating to read his story.

To Gandhi, these were not just words but a way of living and enhancing humanity. If we were all able to take even one ideal and live it, the world would change immediately, and immeasurably for the better and for everyone.
I'm sure this isn't the be all and end all on Ghandi's life, yet you can get a sense of how he was able to motivate so many people to change in a positive way.
