Présentation de l'éditeur

The first edition of Gandhiji's Autobiography was published in two volumes, Vol. I in 1927 and Vol. II in 1929. The original in Gujarati which was priced at Re. 1/- has run through five editions, nearly 50,000 copies having been sold. The price of the English translation (only issued in library edition) was prohibitive for the Indian reader, and a cheap edition has long been needed. It is now being issued in one volume. The translation, as it appeared serially in Young India, had, it may be noted, the benefit of Gandhiji's revision. It has now undergone careful revision, and from the point of view of language, it has had the benefit of careful revision by a revered friend, who, among many other things, has the reputation of being an eminent English scholar. Before undertaking the task, he made it a condition that his name should on no account be given out. I accept the condition. It is needless to say it heightens my sense of gratitude to him. Chapters XXIX-XLIII of Part V were translated by my friend and colleague Pyarelal during my absence in Bardoli at the time of the Bardoli Agrarian Inquiry by the Broomfield Committee in 1928-29. Mahadev Desai, 1940. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Je recommande fortement ce livre, un témoignage superbe de Gandhi sur sa vie, ses idées, ses combats.
Le format kindle est en très bonne qualité, bien meilleure que des versions gratuites que l'on peut trouver sur internet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great work by Great Man 21 décembre 1998
Par A. Vinayak - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book should not be read for literary purposes. It will come as an disppointment for people who expect poetry or prose in their readings. My idea was to learn more about Gandhi and I was very satified as this book nearly accomplished that for me. This book is as simple to read as the man himself. Gandhi tells us most sincerely and honestly that he would not have been what he became, if it was not for certain events that changed his life. Even in his writings Gandhi reflects his modesty and simplicity. He does not fall short of acknowledging his weaknesses and his wrongs. Great philosphy right out of the mind of the great philospher!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pure Gold! 6 mai 2000
Par Bill Butler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Well, we all follow "the experts" (although at 48, I am beginning to learn). We all follow the authorities. What would happen if one just kept a totally blank mind toward everything and learned from just plain LIVING. Gandhi makes it clear at the beginning of the book that this is the only way to gain truth. Not to be strongly influenced by others. His agreements and fondness of other theologians really only comes after his experiments. They have to agree with him first. As you begin to read this book, you are on a jouney. It's like being a Martian or being from another planet simply because Gandhi will simply not take anything as truth unless he has experimented with it himself. He was very much the spiritual scientist. This book is also very easy reading. The chapters are short enough to stop and come back to as well. And it is journey which Gandhi makes clear that anybody can follow. You can't really follow this man's experiments. He wants you to do your own experiments. So this book is really quite an adventure. Gandhi's politics, as he makes clear in this book, really stem from his experiments in truth. You can begin yourself. Wake up, tell your wife she is fat, and see what happens! Gandhi came to the conclusion of always practicing "ahimsa". He would practice it over and over again to see if it worked. And he came to the conclusion that it did. As he once said, "Ahimsa is heaven". Ahimsa means non-violence in thought, word, and deed. One can still defend oneself while loving one's enemy. He saw "satya", or truth as synonymous with non-violance. This man stole at one point, eat meat, was far from celibacy. Buy and read this fabulous scientific inquiry into "How to Live". Then start experimenting for yourself. Good luck on your journey. And please be careful! Gandhi nearly killed himself SMOKING!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Extraordinary Book Written by an Extraordinary Man 1 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have always admired Mr. Gandhi, but really knew very little about him. This book tells of his early life, something most biographies skip choosing to focus on his life in India.
Great historical detail of colonial India, living in England and South Africa. A must read for anyone interested in Mr. Gandhi or that period of history.
The book has also influenced greatly the way I view life. A very spiritually uplifting book, even for non-Hindus.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Horrendous Kindle edition 6 novembre 2011

Want to read this book, but the Kindle edition for sale here is plain awful and clearly was not edited or proofread. It is rife with misspellings, formatting errors, and random line breaks in the middle of sentences. Oh well -- I should have checked out the sample first, but for 0.99 cents it seemed like a no-brainer. I suppose if you really want a cheap version, it could suffice, but I will either be looking for a hard-copy or getting it somewhere else.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of those books that can profoundly affect you 5 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have had misgivings about Gandhi, his thoughts, and his actions. I believe, after I have read this book, that unfortunately, I had a very superficial knowledge about this great person. I still do not agree with many of his policies, do not see him as absolutely infallible, and certainly do not wish to deify him. However, these views have been instilled in me by Gandhi himself as he points out in this marvellous book, that he does not think that he is always correct. He mentions, time and again, that what he says and does, is only his opinion. But he sincerely practices what he preaches, and shares his ideas with all of us in the hope of making the world better. His humility, straight-forwardness, and love of truth touches us all. A truly great man and a very inspiring book.
