walk to freedom

Since this blog is about reading and there’s no man who fought more bravely and with bigger courage and determination that Mandela, let me recommend this book:

In a way, it is related to body modification as so many modified people say that we can’t be judged by the color of our skin (even if it’s red, blue, orange or insert-your-pick-here). The main difference, however, is that – when it comes to your race and skin pigmentation – you’ve never had a choice  while with tattos it’s *almost always* about free will. Mandela fought for the better world with no prejudice, stereotypes or limits imposed on you by the way you look and where you come from and there’s a big lesson to learn from him.

The book is a real beast (751 pages of text plus pictures and Index) but it’s worth reading and some thinking.
