Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is Gandhi's autobiography covering his life from early childhood to approximately 1921. In Gandhi's own words: "I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography. But I shall not mind, if every page of it speaks only of my experiments . . . I should certainly like to narrate my experiments in the spiritual field which are known only to myself, and from which I have derived such power as I posses for working in the political field . . . If I had only to discuss academic principles. I should clearly not attempt an autobiography. But my purpose being to give an account of various practical applications of these principles, I have given the chapters I propose to write the title of The Story of My Experiments with Truth. These will of course include experiments with non-violence, celibacy and other principles of conduct believed to be distinct from truth."

Biographie de l'auteur

Mahatma Gandhi, or Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, was born at Porbandar in Gujarat, on October 2, 1869. His father was the Dewan of the Porbandar State.

Early Life and Career: He married Kasturba when he was only thirteen. He was very truthful from his boyhood days. He went to England to be a barrister. He did not do well as a lawyer. In South Africa he began a movement against the British rulers. In India too he led the freedom movement and at last won independence in 1947.

Non-violence and Gandhism: Gandhiji believed in non-violence and love. He was against untouchability and all sorts of injustice in society. He lived a saintly life and suffered a lot to see truth triumph. His heart bled for the poor and the oppressed. He said that all men were equal. He wanted them all to live in peace. He dreamed of a Ram Rajya in which everybody would live in peace. He was against the modern civilization. Instead, he wanted his countrymen to live in the villages.

Freedom Struggle in India: After spending 21 years in South Africa, Gandhiji returned to India in 1915. While fighting against the British rule in India, he always maintained his principles of truthfulness, peace and non-violence. In 1942, he launched the ‘Quit India Movement’ to drive the British out of the country and gave the famous slogan of ‘do or die’ to his countrymen. Though, the movement didn’t prove to be an immediate success, the British had to grant independence to our country in 1947.

Death and Memory: This great son of India was shot dead on January 30, 1948. But he will live forever in our heart for what he has done for India.

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.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Double columns of text on each page 22 janvier 2016
Par Ms. Gabriela R. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is not a review of the book, which is a classic. It is a review of this edition, which has been put out on Amazon's self-publishing format CreateSpace. The thing that one does not know when purchasing this book is that each page consists of a double column of text. (See photo.) Maybe some people like this, but I don't. The lines of type are too long to be newspaper style but too short to be the length of a line of type in a normal book. I don't really like reading a book like this, thus the low rating. ps I also think it is deceptive of the publisher to not show any of these pages in the "Look Inside" sample that Amazon provides. pps The translator is not named. Seems unprofessional.

A few typos aside, I do not regret for a single minute taking the time to slowly read this book, and think about it. The chapters are very short and numerous, and it is easy to read a little bit at a time. Gandhi has an easy and friendly way of speaking to the reader, and I found myself admiring the memory he displayed, as well as the moral principles he strove to uphold. He is also able to inject a very light touch of humor into the description of some very difficult situations. Before reading this book, I would not have guessed that he had tried to commit suicide as a young man (by taking poisonous seeds), and I was thankful for the frankness with which he expresses his trials and flaws. He called his delving into many aspects of life an "experiment", and he succeeded in making a positive difference on so many lives.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This should be required reading 24 juillet 2016

I have been wanting to read about Gandhi for some time and I noticed this on the Kindle list and started reading it.
He has written this in an easily read form and it is mostly as if he is talking to the reader.
He covers his life as he saw it and provides the reader with insight as to what moved him to his life of serving.
I never knew that he got his start in serving in South Africa.
I think this should be required reading for students as it is a wonderful book and not slanted by anyone other than Gandhi himself.
I highly recommend it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Who is to blame for the format? 3 décembre 2016
Par Judith Petres Balogh - Publié sur

The man, his character, his belief and philosophy, his life and achievements are spectacular. The book on the other hand, is terrible. Nota bene: I am writing about the Kindle version only and object to the translation and careless presentation and not to the content of the book.
There are several reasons for the shortcomings.
First, probably due to the special kind of English spoken in India, there are too many words and terms which although not incorrect, yet used in ways most readers living in the New World find unusual, if not incomprehensible.
A second problem is the abundance of gravely misspelled words. Some of them are amusing as when he feels rewarded having so many devoted FIENDS supporting him (or perhaps he really meant that???) others are merely irritating. Several times I found myself hunting the dictionary for a word I never heard before, only to find that it was a common English word misspelled so creatively it could no longer be recognized.
A third objection is the lack of footnotes. The text is packed with terms used in India and very likely clear enough to locals, but not to westerners. The Kindle dictionary was also clueless for about half of the terms, although halfway through, there was some lame attempt to give translations and the English term was given in parentheses, but it came too late and was not nearly adequate. This mystery also covers the dozens and dozens of names mentioned, but I wager to say that 99% of readers (save perhaps the British) are not familiar who they are.
Did I finish reading the book? Of course I did, because it was too good to miss. But it was a very frustrating experience, because what am I to do with such sentences: “Even for itself we may not so certain things.” The trouble is not that I lifted the example out of the context; the trouble is that it makes no sense. And an even greater problem is that this example is not a lone instance, but such as this appears far too often, preventing troublefree reading. By all means read it,but buy the hardback or paperback version.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great man, but a difficult book to read 21 mai 2016
Par Doug D. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First, I would like to say how much I admire Gandhi. I think he was one of the greatest men of the 20th Century.

But, this book was just plain hard to read. The style was more like reading legislation than reading a life story. That probably makes sense, given Gandhi's educational training. This style might work for a short, thoughtful treatise on a specific topic. But, 500+ pages in this style was just too much.

I finally did get through the book. I would like to say that it was worth it, to get to know Gandhi better. And, that might be true if this book was the only way to get to know Gandhi, but it's not. There are many other sources to learn about him. I think it would be better to chose one of the others.
