'...the story of the bizarre, humorous, tragic and convoluted events which Richard Attenborough experienced in the years that followed.  He writes in detail about his meetings and friendships with such major political figures as Earl Mountbatten of Burma, Pandit Nehru and Indira Gandhi and about his on-off negotiations with film moguls, international distributors and maharajas in numerous endeavours to raise the necessary finance.
Richard Attenborough then describes the realisation of his dream through the actual making of the film Gandhi, logistically, politically and financially the most complex production ever mounted.  The book is illustrated throughout with archive material, black and white photographs shot during the making of the film and full-colour stills which tell the story of Gandhi.'
