Read in January, 2002

1/3 lecture, 1/3 commentary, 1/3 history told in a fresh, airy writing style. Amazing insight and reflection from the truly original 70 yr old actor. Sidney does not put it all on the line... but he puts enough out there to describe this memoir as honest, emotional storytelling. He preaches of family values; upbringing, poverty, black prejudices, integrity and the film industry. I need to see his films again while his writing is still fresh. (02)

I know he recently published a second memoir and I'd like to hear an honest review of his most recent effort. Dave
