Known internationally and across generations for playing the indomitable Spartacus, topping international bestseller lists, and building parks and schools in troubled communities, Kirk Douglas is a legend in his own time and serves as an inspiration to us all.

Now, in My Stroke of Luck, Kirk Douglas finally completes his story by offering a candid and heartfelt memoir of where it all went right. Writing in his own words, Douglas offers tender vignettes in tribute to the childhood that shaped him, the wife and devoted family who supported him, and the life-changing event that helped him to appreciate the gifts given to him over his eighty-three years. Touching and funny, inspiring and uplifting, Kirk Douglas traces how his greatest setback became a source of strength and renewal -- leading him to find the eighth decade of his life the most fulfilling yet.

About the Author:

In addition, his company, Bryna, has produced such classics as Spartacus, Douglas has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award given by the President, as well as numerous other awards and honors.

The father of four sons, and grandfather of five, he lives with his wife, Anne, in Beverly Hills.

From AudioFile:

Kirk Douglas offers up a well-written and optimistic look at life following a serious stroke. Douglas, still young at heart, reflects on his amazing life, many accomplishments, famous friends, and his relationship with God, his family, and the world at large. Celebrity aside, Douglas has a plethora of great insights and advice for anyone struggling with hardship, regardless of age. Kirk Douglas's speech impediment following his stroke forces the listener to pay close attention in order to understand his words, but listening becomes much easier when Michael Douglas reads his father's words. The younger Douglas does a stellar job capturing his father's wit and sense of timing. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
