Former president Nelson Mandela’s seminal thoughts and pearls of wisdom have been captured in an authorised book of quotations called Nelson Mandela by Himself. The book was launched on June 27 at the foundation in Houghtonh, Johannesburg.

It’s Mandela’s third book since his best-selling autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom and his memoir, Conversations with Myself. Former Rivonia Trialist and Robben Islander, Kathy Kathrada, says Mandela has said something valuable on every possible topic during his long life.

From the liberation of being imprisoned to the sex education of his children.
