Pros:Fantastic writing

Cons:Hard to follow at times

The Bottom Line: Buy this book... you will not be sorry.


Before Invictus the movie, there was Play The Enemy the novel where soon after Nelson Mandela got out of prison he entered South Africa's first non warlord controlled election and won. He was put in control of a country that was still torn apart from decades of valance, war, corruption and starvation.
Nelson Mandela had an odd plan to help bring his beloved country back together, it was through rugby. The national team is the Springboks, not only did Nelson Mandela have an ambitious plan but he planned to do it while they prepared to host the 1995 world cup. With every win they got the country grow stronger and more unified, and the wins became numerous...
This is a story of love and passion, true and daring of the human conduction to overcome impossible odds.

The novelist is John Carlin and he is a writer for EL Paris, the leading Spanish newspaper.   

I have not read many works before that made me feel inspired to be more then what I am...this is by far the greatest. This heart warming peace of writing will not only make you feel lucky that you are who you are, but will make you want to be a better person!   

Nelson Mandela is not only consider a great strategist but a great human being which is beautifully portrait in this writing.
