The Story of My Experiments with Truth is the Autobiography of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, covering his life from early childhood through to 1920. It was initiated at the insistence of Swami Anand and other close co-workers of Gandhi, for him to explain the background of his public campaigns. In 1999, the book was designated as one of the 100 Most important Spiritual Books of the 20th Century by Harper Collins publishes. Gandhiji wrote in his Autobiography that the three most important modern influences in his life were Leo Tolstoy's The Kingdom of God Is Within You, John Ruskin's Unto This Last and the poet Shrimad Rajchandra (Raychandbhai). In the last chapter, he notes, My life from this point onward has been so public that there is hardly anything about it that people do not know... The only English translation of The Story of My Experiments with Truth was done by Gandhi's friend and assistant Mahadev Desai.
