An excellent book which provides facts until unknown to many of a very known man. The controversy has made the book more popular.
Great writing style. Excellent coinage of words. I have read this book in a single sitting and though perplexed in some areas I would recommend this to all. Though at first seem objectionable, the author and his extensive research dwells into the details that, as Indians, we are afraid to look into.
I would recommend this book along with 'My Experiments with Truth' and 'Freedom at Midnight' to any student of Indian political history.
A note of praise for the prompt and safe delivery of the book by Flipkart.
A biased but intellectually stimulating biography of Gandhi.The book is lucidly written and highly readable.The research done by Joseph is thorough and painstaking. The chapters relating to indentured labour, Ambedkar, Sevagram ,Do or Die , partition are highly engaging, and throws some new light on the gandhi principles, experiments and influence.This book changed my perspective. My reverence for Gandhi enhanced.
Lelyveld has delved intensely on those aspects of Gandhi's life which people find most convenient to criticise, and at no point has he taken a tone that can be termed disrespectful towards the Mahatma; on the other hand I found him much closer to the truth. As an outsider he has not failed to give a neutral account of 'the great lesson' which we as Indians mostly are unable to, for we either revere him or not.
Joseph Lelyveld foremost is very readable. What also stands out is a painstakingly constructed of Gandhiji's South Africa stay and how it is a prologue to his engagement with our own freedom struggle. Again, this is not a hagiography and parts of it can offend real and pretentious claimant's to his legacy.
