Every life has the power to change the world.

Ndaba Mandela was raised by his grandfather, Nelson Mandela. It is easy to forget that legendary figures like Mandela were first and foremost human beings, flawed and unique, but in Ndaba’s account we have a rare and personal insight into the man behind the myth.

In 11 Life Lessons, Ndaba shares with us his memories – charming, intimate and sometimes surprising – to illuminate Mandela’s much-loved principles for how to become the people we want to be.

Always call out injustice – even when we see it in ourselves

Freedom must be given as much as it is taken

Strive to do what is right rather than to prove you are right

Anger has its place, even in a kind heart

Inspired by Mandela’s remarkable stories, 11 Life Lessons from Nelson Mandela offers a profound and rewarding pathway to changing your world.
