Very interesting read. Lelyveld does a good job of humanizing Gandhi instead of the mindless hero-worship of other biographies. Talks about his triumphs as well as his not so stellar human moments. Also describes some of the acts and ideas espoused by Gandhi that were just plain bizarre. Good read.
