    Kirk Douglas is a born storyteller, and in this engrossing memoir, he offers wonderful tales, favorite jokes, and hard-won insights. As he explores the mixed blessings of growing older, he looks back at his youth and his glamorous life in Hollywood. He tells delightful stories of the making of such films as Spartacus and includes anecdotes about such friends as Frank Sinatra, Lauren Bacall, Ronald Reagan, Fred Astaire, John Wayne, and Johnny Cash.

    Overall

    I have listened to so many books on tape but have never had the desire to write a review before listening to "Let's Face It". I absolutely loved it. It was inspiring, educational and enjoyable. His story telling is fantastic and Jason Alexander narrates it so well. Kirk Douglas' account of his past, his relationship with his parents, his wife and children was instrumental in developing the Kirk that he is today. His life experiences are enriching, not just for himself but for the readers. It seems he learned so much in the past 90 years and has a great desire to make a true difference in this world, not as an actor, but as a human being who is concerned about his fellow man and the future generation.

    It's the summer of 1939. Two Jewish sisters from Vienna—12-year-old Stephie Steiner and 8-year-old Nellie—are sent to Sweden to escape the Nazis. They expect to stay there six months, until their parents can flee to Amsterdam; then all four will go to America. But as the world war intensifies, the girls remain, each with her own host family, on a rugged island off the western coast of Sweden.

    DM says: "Compelling writing, engagingly read."
