A spell-binding autobiography by one of the world’s most admired human rights advocates. This story, told on a grand scale, unfolds from Bizos’ daring rescue of 6 NZ soldiers from the Nazis as a boy in Greece.

He arrives in Johannesburg together with his father, penniless and unable to speak English. He studies law at Wits and becomes an advocate, building a career on defending the downtrodden against apartheid abuses in a hostile justice system. He becomes the defender of Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu and the families of Steve Biko, Chris Hani and the Cradock Four. He mediates in the events around Winnie Mandela and even defends Morgan Tsvangirai in Zimbabwe.

These cases are related as gripping courtroom dramas, augmented by the drama behind the scenes.

His whole remarkable, courageous and beneficial life told by himself in astonishing detail, involving hundreds of colourful characters and anecdotes.
