His experiments are not just with Truth but also with community service, simple living, dietary restrictions, self healing and standing up for rights.
A very simple but also a very account of all of the above.
Not to be swayed by the thoughts and righteousness of the "Father of the Nation", there are, however, many aspects where you would not agree with him and may find some inconsistencies in his approach. To name a few, his behaviour with his wife at times when she was forced into those aspects of community service which she, being a human, had all the rights to deny. Also, the failure of the father and a teacher to impart proper education to his own children despite the fact that he had all the means to provide for the same and the fact that he himself had studied to the highest levels possible in his field with proper degrees.
Overall, a good account of the life of a simple but powerful man.
I was especially interested in his evolving understanding of satyagraha and his increasingly strict vegetarianism. His ascetism increased in direct proportion to his growing political power.
The autobiography ends in 1920, right around the time Gandhi became an international figure. The major historical events leading up to Independence are outside the scope of the book, but it's fascinating to watch Gandhi become Gandhi during the first half of his life.
