Description

In the six decades since he took to the stage and screen, Kirk Douglas has starred in eighty-three films, nine plays, written seven books, and made a remarkable commitment to humanitarian causes world-wide. Now in My Stroke of Luck, his vivid and very personal reflection upon his extraordinary life, Kirk Douglas finally completes his story by offering a candid and heartfelt memoir of where it all went right.

Written in his own words, Kirk offers tender vignettes of his childhood, family, and the seminal event that changed his life for the better. Kirk offers the lessons that saved him and helped him to heal; he also shares warm memories of some of the most famous figures of our time -- including Burt Lancaster, Michael J. Fox and Gary Cooper.

Filled with personal insights and read by Kirk Douglas and his son Michael, My Stroke of Luck is an audio sure to inspire all who hear it.
