Long Walk to Freedom
Nelson Mandela's autobiography from his youth in a small village in the Transkei, to his Presidency of a (relatively) united South Africa, via many years in prison on Robben Island and the mainland.
Very very good. To begin with it seemed a bit slow and disjointed, probably because of all the complex and confusing relationships between the different political groups, but once he got put in prison it was great. And even better when they let him out of course. This was my 200th book in Cambodia, which gives me an average so far of 1.89 books per week (assuming 106 weeks).
