    • I love your review of Invictus!! Morgan Freeman was outstanding in his portrayal. I have the book “Playing The Enemy: Nelson Mandela And The Game That Made A Nation” by John Carlin, but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. It is on the top of my “to read” list, but alas, my list keeps on growing and growing and growing…
