11 Life Lessons from Nelson Mandala

11 Life Lessons from Nelson Mandala

Author: Ndaba Mandala

We all have the power to change our story. Told through Ndaba Mandela’s years of being raised by his grandfather Nelson Mandela, this book offers a rare and intimate insight into man behind the myth. Ndaba narrates his coming-of-age story within the framework of his grandfather’s advice, understanding Mandela’s much-loved proverbs as guidelines on how to become the people we want to be: Always choose compassion over contempt. Assumptions make us look profoundly foolish. Shouting the loudest has never made anyone right. Anger has its place, even in a kind heart. In many ways, Ndaba has spent a lifetime reconciling the legend of Nelson Mandela with the man who was his grandfather, and interpreting these life-lessons as he, in turn, began to build a family. Here, Ndaba shares with us the memories he has of his grandfather – charming, real and sometimes surprising, they are lessons we can all learn from.
