His right arm was blown off and he lost the sight of one eye. This intimate and moving account of his recovery records the gradual recuperation of his broken body, his complex interaction with health professionals, the importance of touch and sensuality, and his triumphant reentry into the world. It also captures the spirit of a remarkable man: his enormous optimism, his commitment to social justice, and his joyous wonder at the life that surrounds him.

In a new epilogue, Sachs gives a gripping insiders view of the major public events of the last decade--the election of Nelson Mandela, the formation of the Constitutional Court and Sachss appointment as judge, and his own role with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
