Gandhi: An Autobiography – The Story of My Experiments With Truth

Mohandas K. Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century.

In a new foreword, noted peace expert and teacher Sissela Bok urges us to adopt Gandhi’s “attitude of experimenting, of testing what will and will not bear close scrutiny, what can and cannot be adapted to new circumstances,” in order to bring about change in our own lives and communities.

“Here is an autobiography more captivating than fiction and more stimulating than romantic adventure. It is the most revealing study of the human soul that I have ever read.”
The Christian Century

“An absorbing book that stands alone in frankness and plain honesty…Its place among the classics of autobiography cannot be in doubt.”
The New Statesman

“An amazingly frank self-revelation of the greatest and humblest modern man.”
The Annals

“It is…only by reading the whole long and detailed day-by-day record that readers can sense the magic of Gandhi’s being and discover him fully.”
Saturday Review

“(Gandhi’s) autobiography remains invaluable for its account of the shaping of a new path to collective resistance to injustice.”
—From the foreword by Sissela Bok
