Praise

” This wonderful book describes Mandela’s methodical, improbable and brilliant campaign to reconcile resentful blacks and fearful whites around a sporting event, a game of rugby.”
The New York Times Book Review

” If you have any doubts about the political genius of Nelson Mandela, read John Carlin’s engrossing book . . . [A] feel-good slice of history.”
USA Today
