Book Review of "An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth" by Mahatma Gandhi

Review by Michael Laughrin,

I have just finished reading Mahatma Gandhi's "An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth." Of the 10,000 books I have read, Gandhi's autobiography is, quite simply, the most uplifting book I have ever read (excluding scriptures and 'holy' books).

What impressed me the most was Gandhi's extreme clear-mindedness. He was a master of prioritizing; he almost always did the most important task first. Although he took exception with a few specific applications of "The Law," he was devoted to the general principles of British law. Gandhi was non-judgmental. He understood the other side and continued to see the opposition as people.

Always on the path of self-improvement, Gandhi was committed to principle. He virtually always "walked his talk." His personal discipline and integrity were matched only by his desire to serve and his commitment to non-violence and to Truth itself.

The inner development of Mahatma Gandhi's life is wonderfully educational. The book clearly shows what one man can accomplish through will -- coupled with integrity.

The royalties from the sale of this book are donated to the Navajivan Trust, a charity founded by Gandhi for perpetuating his work.
