Nelson Mandela’s book Conversations With Myself is an unprecedented and official portrait of one of the great leaders of our time, with a foreword by President Barack Obama. This enhanced edition of Conversations with Myself contains exclusive archive material from the Nelson Mandela Foundation, including audio recordings that allow you to hear selected conversations as they were spoken. Conversations With Myself is a moving collection of letters, diary entries and other writing that provides a rare chance to see the other side of Nelson Mandela’s life, in his own voice: direct, clear, private. An international bestseller, Conversations With Myself is an intensely personal book that complements his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom. In his foreword to Nelson Mandela’s book, President Barack Obama writes: 'Conversations With Myself does the world an extraordinary service in giving us [a] picture of Mandela the man.' Conversations With Myself gives readers insight to the darkest hours of Nelson Mandela’s twenty-seven years of imprisonment and his troubled dreams in his cell on Robben Island. It contains the draft of an unfinished sequel to Long Walk to Freedom, notes from Madiba’s famous speeches, and even doodles made during meetings. There are photos from his life, journals written while on the run during the anti-apartheid struggles of the early 1960s, and conversations with friends in almost 70 hours of recorded interviews. An intimate journey from the first stirrings of his political conscience to his galvanizing role on the world stage, Conversations With Myself is an extraordinary glimpse of the man behind one of the world's most beloved public figures. 'More revealing of the man than his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom – and in many respects more moving as well' F.W. De Klerk 'A book that breaks the heart and then makes it sing' Andrew Rawnsley, Observer Books of the Year ‘Intensely moving, raw and unmediated, told in real time with all the changes in perspective that brings, over the years, mixing the prosaic with the momentous. Health concerns, dreams, political initiatives spill out together, to provide the fullest picture yet of Mandela.’ Peter Godwin, Observer

Als Nelson Mandela im Dezember 2013 starb, weinte nicht allein Südafrika. Die ganze Welt trauerte um den Mann, der seine ganze Kraft eingesetzt hatte, um eine stabile Demokratie aufzubauen. Über die Jahre bis zum Beginn seiner Präsidentschaft legte Mandela in seiner viel beachteten Autobiografie Zeugnis ab. Der Traum von einer neuen Gesellschaft war da noch lange nicht verwirklicht. Seinen Wunsch, auch über die entscheidenden Folgejahre zu schreiben, konnte Mandela sich jedoch nur teilweise erfüllen. Erst jetzt öffnet sich dank seiner Witwe und der Mandela Foundation der Zugang zu seinen außergewöhnlichen Präsidentschaftsjahren, ein unverstellter Einblick in Mandelas Wesen: seine bemerkenswerte Führungsstärke in der Wendezeit, seinen Pragmatismus, seine unverrückbaren Überzeugungen, sein unbeirrtes Streben nach dem Möglichen, seine persönlichen Kämpfe, seine Werte, Schwächen, Ängste und Triumphe, seine Enttäuschungen.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

In this unusual and transformative book, Rache Darwin tells of her personal therapeutic journey through a difficult patch in the road to achieving self-enlightenment. The story is told in a series of meditations, which take the form of conversations between her child-self, adult-self and higher self or “Teacher,” illustrating a process that can be used by anyone to discover the healing, comfort and guidance that lie within each of us, as close as our heartbeat. These conversations occurred over a time span of 14 months in the midst of many solitary contemplative sessions, which opened Rache to receive instructive communications from these other "selves." The process, more than the particulars, demonstrates that we all possess a distinct, individual guiding voice and points the way to contact that innate wisdom and blaze our own path to self-understanding and mastery.

A couple of months after my mother died, I became aware that I needed something to help me cope with her passing. One day, I was inspired to write a story each day, using a word prompt from a "Photo-a-Day" Facebook group. Some days, it would be the last thing I did, and often as I started to write, I would have no idea what would eventuate. On other days, there would be two or three articles inspired by the one word. Many stories were written over that year, and this book contains 100 of them. Selecting the right stories for this first volume of Conversations with Myself took a lot of prayer and shuffling, but I hope they will encourage, challenge, and give you something to smile about occasionally, just as they did for me while I was writing them.

If these collected reviews and other writings have themes they probably have to do with the author's evolving discovery over the years of what poetry is, for him, and his struggle to articulate his thoughts about the poetry he likes and the poetry he doesn't. For Martin Stannard, reviewing has always been a process where he finds out what he thinks and questions himself. During this process what started out as gut reaction becomes sentences with words in them, ready to face readers and their questions.

Conversations With Myself: Focused Distractions is the second release in a set works that relays the inner dialog of one person. All the confusions, obsessions, perversions and anger mixed in with desire, esteem, joy and love. There is no logic to an unresting mind and so each entry is just a moment caught from the dialog within. Dealing with distant memories that arise, present events as they unfold or the foggy perception of what the future holds, Sane Madness is much like plugging a speaker into one's ear and letting the brain speak without the filter of self censorship.

Conversations with Myself is my way of explaining the world around me. It is a celebration of emotions that we all go through at one time or another. It is a declaration that gives voice to happiness, sadness, victories and jubilations. It addresses what works, what doesn't work and where do you go from here. Conversations with Myself dissects life and universal themes. As some wise person once stated: "We are more alike than we are different" I have divided this into six "Conversations". They are Life, God, Relationships, Family, Celebrities, and Myself. I hope as you read these conversations that they touch your heart, make you smile; but most of all start your own conversations with yourself.

Someone once told me that my words have a voice, and that whatever I decided to do with my writings, I must never lose that voice in those words written on paper. From the Walls Inside: Recorded Conversations with Myself, is a compilation of personal testimonies that I have written in the form of poetry, short stories and essays. It is a book of expression--an expression of hurt and pain, leading towards healing and deliverance. It speaks from woman to woman; however, it speaks volumes for many who have been victimized by the haunting secrets of their past. Growing up in a home that was infested with generation curse upon generation curse was a difficult thing for me as a child to comprehend, to communicate and/or to outmaneuver; there were no specific guidelines on how to effectively make known the many hurts and pains that were festering within me. It was only when I became an adult that I was able to write about the pain from the suffering inside. Many times I stared into the mirror and talked to myself (slowly picked myself apart), when I saw a wounded little girl bound, fighting to scream out the voice that was hiding within-the voice that was silenced by everyone else's silence. I began to record those conversations (with the guidance of the Lord) to understand that while I was in the midst of my pain, there was a much greater purpose for my life. Christ has blessed my life with the gift of writing; He has entrusted me with this gift; He has given me the responsibility to help set others free through the power of the written word.
