Nelson Mandela was always the subject of public interest. Once he retired from public life, that interest intensified, resulting in the proliferation of false claims and rumours in the media and elsewhere regarding his health, his medical treatment, and, in particular, about events during the months leading up to his death. This book sets the record straight about Mandela's last years. Written by the head of his medical team, the military doctor who witnessed first-hand what the former president was experiencing, it documents the complex medical challenges, the disputes between family members and staff, the constant scrutiny from the press, and the actions and responses of Mandela himself. Written with respect and with the support of family members, this book completes the story of Nelson Mandela. It reveals a man who showed immense courage, not only when he fought for the freedom of millions of people, but until the very end of his own life.
