Content was just as I expected-well stated, honest and forthright. The whole book was made even better by the fact it was read by the author! Thank you, Mr. Poitier!
This is one of the most moving stories that I have ever listened to. Poitier's character is what I would want in a husband or a son. If you are raising a boy, read this book. If you are finding a spouse, read this book. If you want a clear definition of what a good man is, read this book. If you are an educator, as I am, read this book and mention it to your students.
Mr. Poitier is someone I've always admired. This incredible story, his story, is beautifully written and read by the author. It's a wonderful "listen".
Yeah, it sounds cheesy, but this is a real epic book taking you on a journey in a man's life from being poor to a star. This is a fantastic book, definitely worth getting.
Honest and wise with a touch of humor, Poiter's memoir is engaging. I wanted to know more about Poiter the person aside from his career. Born in the 70's, Poiter's story motivates me check out his work to better understand his insights. Overall I would recommend it.
if you're a disney portier fan this might be a great listening. if you're not, it's just plain boring. i stopped listening after the first hour, it just wasn't interesting.
