I saw the movie The Way because of the story. Before that I'm not sure if I had ever watch a complete movie with Martin Sheen or his son Emilio Estevez. I ordered the book because I like bios and relationship stories. This is a story of the father son journey, some biography on both of them and some movie trivia all woven together. Each take a turn narrating their portion of their story. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Makes Martin Sheen and his family so approachable, like you know them intimately.
my first bio book and looking forward to getting to know more amazing people!

An interesting and often moving story from the other side of the film lens and how choices we make bear different perceptions depending upon whether you're the decision maker or abider. It's a story about growing up and maturing - even when you think you're an adult. I loved The Way and understand it even more deeply now that I have heard how and why it was written. Thank you, Emilio and Martin, for sharing your lives with us both on and off screen. Bravo!
This was a very good listen and was made more interesting being told by the people themselves. It really makes you respect what they've accomplished and also makes you think about your own family relationships.
The last two hours of the book really capture the story and heart of the book. It was great the Sheen and Estevez read the book themselves. Overall, a great history of 2 great actors and of a great family.
Yes, I enjoyed most of the pace and story.
I love how authors that read their own books can put emphasis where they intended, and few authors can do that better than Martin Sheen. Emilio Estevez does a fine job as well.
The good parts, yes. It becomes very addictive the further into the book you get. As with many books, this one could have used an editor with no vested interest in the book that could have pointed out areas that are belabored. All in all a good book.

The narrators, accomplished and famous film professionals, give an open, honest and revealing insight into their work histories as individuals and as father and son. I enjoyed this entire book...all the way through...far more than I imagined I would. Like all good books, I was sorry when the ride was over.
I enjoyed the content of the book, and the delivery as well. In theory, a duel memoir could pose problems, but I truly enjoyed hearing from the men themselves the story of their lives.
I m sure this book and their movie, that i haven't seen, were great projects for them. While I ended with a lot of respect for Emilio, esp as I didnt know the breadth of his work, I didnt know Martin was such a jerk. and, i dont teally mean jerk, perhaps artogant oddball. i found myself wanting to fast forward thru his sections. sometimes its not good to know more about celebrities!
A moving, inspiring story of the relationship between a father and a son. A deeply personal and honest story. I loved every moment of the story, not only in Martin and Emilio's own words but in their own voice. As they tell of the journey of their relationship, trials, struggles and personal battles you will be challenged to take a look at your own life and relationships.
