Book Review: Gandhi: A Very Short Introduction

 
     So I've been slacking a bit on the book reviews, (see my last one on money & its government allotment here) but I recently picked this book up and couldn't help but get back in the groove, so to speak. This book is very small and convenient, a short read. This is the first I have read about Gandhi and I found it to be very interesting. The book covers his personal life, beliefs, and actions all in 152 small pages. I rarely read a book twice but this is one I will read again, no doubt. I closed this book with a mind open to new ideas, for example:
  • Gandhi's take on debates/discussions, 
  • His view that all people are good in one way or another and therefore salvageable
  • And the idea that one cannot hurt another without hurting himself.
