MEDIA REVIEWS
I hope the world will support her vision of hope -- Nelson Mandela
From one of Africa's most positive and far-sighted thinkers comes a wonderful book combining an elegant critique of Africa's troubled past with a rallying cry for how Africans can use culture, nature and self-belief to reverse their continent's decline. The Challenge for Africa is a milestone in African writing that both educates and inspires -- Tim Butcher
Penetrating. . . a 21st century manifesto for Africans, drawing on her own experience as a worldly Kenyan, street-fighting activists, member of parliament and, from 2003-2006, government minister. Her analysis is thorough. She reaches into African history, culture, psychology, contemporary politics and fragile ecosystems * Financial Times *
Like a Nelson Mandela or a Mahatma Gandhi, Maathai stands way above most mortals * The Guardian *
Wangari Maathai is a prophet for our time -- Alexandra Fuller
