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 worth it 26 mai 2016
Par Frank - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great man, but a difficult book to read 21 mai 2016
Par Doug D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Mahatma in the making 16 août 2011
Par Souvik Mitra - Publié sur Amazon.com

Firstly, I'd like to note that it is difficult, for me at least, to opine on a topic like Gandhi's life. My experience has been that there is hardly anyone of any consequence who does not hold an opinion regarding Gandhi. I'd also note that such opinion usually tends to be not very favorable, among my generation, & part of the reason I read this book was indeed to express a more informed point of view when ever the occasion presented itself.

This book starts with Gandhi's birth & ends somewhere around the end of the first world war. The language, in the second decade of the twenty first century, seems a little archaic. I cannot seem to recollect if this work was penned by Gandhi much like a diary written regularly or he wrote it down all together at a certain time. If it is the latter, then Gandhi definitely possessed a very remarkable memory. Of mirth & humor, there is very little.

By & large, there are some traits that consistently emerge. Conviction definitely stands out. Needless to say, there are many principles that Gandhi espoused that have stood the test of time - non-violence, satyagraha, non-cooperation etc - however, certain others really appear awfully obstinate - like refusal to take medicines regardless of the criticality of the disease, emphasizing building character in children at the cost of regular grammar & arithmetic, his fascination with the spinning wheel etc.

However, the most outstanding trait in all of this is Gandhi's scrupulous honesty. And it is from this that his great courage emerges. I'll also say that such courage & conviction was also aided by sharp skills to negotiate - it is interesting to me that in spite of some of his convictions noted above, Gandhi never came across as naive - & an uncompromising attitude towards taking no for an answer.

In essence, I'd definitely say that I know more about Gandhi, & learnt to admire him as a leader of men, & an apostle of truth. The polemic surrounding his impact on the Indian freedom struggle, however, remains unanswered by this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A bit long-winded but he was still an inspirational figure 12 juillet 2013
Par CJ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Gandhi's story was a bit long-winded, and he talked so self-righteously about himself at times to the point of annoying-ness...some things he talked about (i.e. his diet) I found quite irrelevant. It was interesting to read that he was married at a very young age - I never knew that, and the complexities of that marriage made him seem more real. There were points where I almost felt he looked down on black South Africans, like it was wrong for white South-Africans to treat Indians poorly, but a totally different story all together with how they treated Black people (i.e. one night he was taking a walk down a South African road and was berated by a white man. One of Gandhi's white friends caught this and got mad at the white man for berating Gandhi. Gandhi said something to the effect of 'Oh forgive him, he just thought I was a black man') - this is paraphrased, but you get the just of it.

Still, his determination and fight for Indians to be treated equally was inspirational. His peaceful protests are what eventually inspired Martin Luther King and, to a point, Nelson Mandela, fight for the rights of blacks in America (King) and South Africa (Mandela). So for that, and for refusing to accept the racist status quo for his people, Gandhi was an inspiration.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 NOT for everyone 27 février 2014

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have a great respect for Gandhi and I read this book to get a clearer understanding of the man. I reject the pedestal he has been placed upon, a fate no one deserves. Here are his words and thoughts, foreign in many ways to those of the west and unfamiliar with of man of his time and place. Readers who cannot understand his era or upbringing will likely be disappointed or confused by his account. Those with insight, compassion and the wisdom to know that Gandhi was indeed only human, will be able to enjoy this book completely.
Due to the publisher's marketing is is called an autobiography, which it was never intended to be and does not include his later years when he was a considerable political force. Still there is much here and plenty of opportunities to meet the real Gandhi with all his glitter and grime. I feel I know him so much better now and am amused and surprised of the many attitudes/beliefs we share. It is unlikely that if I were a contemporary I could have called him friend, but it is especially satisfying to be able to identify more closely with what made this good man tick. A great read, but not a breezy read and not for those who do not want to see anything but a courageous white knight figure. He was so much more than that stereotypical caricature.
