Those fascinated by the Mahatma will find much to enjoy in this beautifully produced, well-written picto­rial biography. The photogra­phs span Gandhi’s life and include many which have rarely, if ever, been pub­lished. There are also drawings, portraits, cartoons, bazaar posters.

What emerges is a more intimate portrait than that offered by conventional biographies and a more graphic picture of relationships with Gandhi’s family and friends. The family album includes his grandparents and extended family and offers insights into their semi-feudal background as ministers to Gujarati princelings.
