Review: Gandhi: A Memoir

User Review  - Sheila - Goodreads

William Shirer's memoir about the year he spend with Gandhi in India. Not the best book I've read by Shirer, but good nevertheless. I am not sure Gandhi's ideas were quite as good as Shirer believed, but it was good enough that now I have to read Gandhi's biography. Read full review

About the author (1979)

William L. Shirer has had a distinguished career as foreign correspondent, news commentator, and historian of the contemporary world. He reported from Berlin for the Universal News Service and for CBS on the rise of the Nazis and he covered their all as a war correspondent. Out of these reports grew his best-sellers "Berlin Diary" and "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," which has sold more copies for the Book-of-the-Month Club than any other book in the club's history.

Shirer is the author of many other best-selling books, including "The Collapse of the Third Republic" and an autobiography, "Twentieth Century Journey: A Memoir of a Life and the Times," composed of three volumes -- "The Start: 1904-1930, The Nightmare Years: 1930-1940," and "A Native's Return: 1945-1988." He is at work on a new book about the last two weeks of Tolstoy's life.
