SUMMARY Playing the Enemy Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation 107 John Carlin ✓ 7 SUMMARY SUMMARY ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ John Carlin Engage a new South Africa as they prepared to host the 1995 World Cup The string of wins that followed not only defied the odds but capped Mandela's miraculous effort to bring South Africans together again in a hard won enduring bon. Good if flawed account of Mandela s struggle to unify South Africa The author did a good job in showing how tenuous the country was during Mandela s term as president and Mandelas role in stabilizing a very dangerous period in history However there are just too many flaws in this book to thoroughly enjoy it First there is the formal and stiff writing style of the author It tends to be unfocused in describing the events Secondly while The author sincerely admires Mandela and there is much to be admired the adulation tends to be a bit heavy Third The Rugby part of the book doesn t really become important until the last uarter This is probably good since I know nothing about Rugby however I found it inspiring to read about how Mandela worked with his past enemies to unify a country In the scheme of things even this Rugby game seeedm to be a bit exaggerated in its importance This is a good example of the movie being better than the book
