Description

Told through Ndaba Mandela?s years of being raised by his grandfather Nelson Mandela, this book offers a rare and intimate insight into man behind the myth. Ndaba narrates his coming-of-age story within the framework of his grandfather?s advice, understanding Mandela?s much-loved proverbs as guidelines on how to become the people we want to be- Always choose compassion over contempt Assumptions make us look profoundly foolish Shouting the loudest has never made anyone right Anger has its place, even in a kind heart In many ways, Ndaba has spent a lifetime reconciling the legend of Nelson Mandela with the man who was his grandfather, and interpreting these life-lessons as he, in turn, began to build a family. Here, Ndaba shares with us the memories he has of his grandfather - charming, real and sometimes surprising, they are lessons we can all learn from.
