Mandela’s Way is a distillation of countless hours of conversation between Richard Stengel and Nelson Mandela into what Stengel sees as 15 core truths of Mandela’s life. Each truth is expanded upon and brought to life with examples of its application in Mandela’s own life. CSJS will provide copies of the book the first week of fall quarter. To participate, please respond by Sept. 17 and indicate if you will need a copy of the book by e-mailing Pamela Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
