Description"Unabashedly uplifting." THE CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER Set in a world torn apart, where man enslaves his fellow man and freedom remains elusive, THE POWER OF ONE is the moving story of one young man's search for the love that binds friends, the passion that binds lovers, and the realization that it takes only one to change the world. A weak and friendless boy growing up in South Africa during World War II, Peekay turns to two older men, one black and one white, to show him how to find the courage to dream, to succeed, to triumph over a world when all seems lost, and to inspire him to summon up the most irrersistible force of all: the Power of One.

Reviews for The Power of One
Guess we should have known
I wrote to Book Depository several times because I noticed the exact same title was offered at varying prices. Not just this book but many others. I asked what the difference was. I asked if it was perhaps cheaper quality, or abridged version. The answer always came back that they didn't know. They didn't have the books in front of them as they were a warehouse. So I guess we must remember that You Get What You Pay For. I'm still a huge fan of Book Depository but will not buy the cheapest versions again as they are not the same. I agree that it would be nice to now if it is abridged. by Marilyn Fonte
ABRIDGED VERSION! WATCH OUT!
Like the above reviewer, I would like to caution everyone that this is the abridged version.
It is printed on the cover that is the "young readers' condensed version". However, like most, I did not think to enlarge the image to see what's written beneath.
Incredibly frustrating. Now ordering the unabridged version.
BookDepository should consider stating very clearly in the title that this is an abridged version of the book. by Wong Pei Yee

NOTE: this is an abridged version. I purchased accidently as it isn't labled well. Buy the more expensive unabridged book. by stuart evans
