1. Nelson Mandela Learned Early That if You Have Advanced Stage TB, It Is a Bad Idea to Smoke a Pipe

2. He May Have Inherited His Stubbornness from His Father

3. He Went to the Oxford of Uhuru

4. He Had Two Daughters, Both Called Makaziwe

5. War and Peace was his favorite book

6. Some Stories Suggest He Secretly Loved Jail

7. Long Walk to Freedom Was Ghost-Written
