Notes: Includes index.
Accompanying DVD-ROM contains " ... the original text from which the text of the English edition of the book is drawn, from which in turn the German edition has been drawn; ... a number of short stories, anecdotes speeches and articles that can stand alone that are included on the DVD but not in the book for reasons of length and wanting to maintain a story line. Many of the stories are accompanied by pictures and photographs. The German edition lacks some of the detail of the full version in English; notably names of people and descriptions of places. Since I have also done many video interviews, about two hours of audio-visual material has been included because that is another way of telling some of the stories of my life. Additional biographies have been included courtesy of my comrade Archie Sibeko."--DVD-ROM.
