In this autobiography, also titled The Story of My Experiments with Truth, Mohandas K. Gandhi recounts his life from childhood up until 1921, noting that "my life from this point onward has been so public that there is hardly anything about it that people do not know." HarperCollins chose this work as one of the "100 Most Important Spiritual Books of the 20th Century." The pursuit of truth was a guiding principle for Gandhi. He states that it "is not my purpose to attempt a real autobiography. I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography." He also notes that this "will of course include experiments with non-violence, celibacy and other principles of conduct believed to be distinct from truth."

Mahatma Gandhis Autobiographie wurde von Gandhi in den zwanziger Jahren in Form wöchentlicher Beiträge zu seiner Gujarati-Zeitschrift "Navajivan" niedergeschrieben, dann von seinem Sekretär Mahadev Desai ins Englische übersetzt und nach Durchsicht und Billigung Gandhis in Buchform veröffentlicht. Sie ist ein einzigartiges Dokument seiner Wahrheitssuche und der Nachwelt gegenüber ein lebendiger Protest gegen die Verflüchtigung des Mahatma-Bildes zur Legende, denn sie schildert mit einer Offenheit, die gleich weit entfernt ist von eitler Selbststilisierung wie von koketter Selbstentlarvung, die Entwicklung dieser ebenso bedeutenden wie eigenartigen Persönlichkeit, bei der der Mensch deshalb nicht vom Politiker zu trennen ist, weil beide gleichermassen im religiösen Grunde wurzeln. Zeitlich bis an die Schwelle von Gandhis Wirksamkeit als Befreier Indiens im grossen Stil führend, legt sie alle jenen Elemente seines Geistes und Charakters, die ihn zu seiner welthistorischen Rolle befähigten, mit einer Rückhaltlosigkeit dar, die sein Denken und Handeln von den Fundamenten her verstehen lehrt. Der Leser nimmt teil an Gandhis Jugenderlebnissen, seiner Begegnung mit der englischen Welt, seinen ihn ins politische Leben hineinziehenden Erfahrungen in Südafrika und seinem Hineinwachsen in das Freiheitsstreben Indiens, dem er dann die moralische Basis und die geistige Richtung geben sollte.

Four or five years ago, at the instance of some of my nearest co-workers, I agreed to write my autobiography. I made the start, but scarcely had I turned over the first sheet when riots broke out in Bombay and the work remained at a standstill. it is not my purpose to attempt a real autobiography. I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography. But I shall not mind, if every page of it speaks only of my experiments. I believe, or at any rate flatter myself with the belief, that a connected account of all these experiments will not be without benefit to the reader.
