Revealing life story told with verve and apparent honesty. Mr. Douglas' account of his early years was especially engaging; the Hollywood years not so much. One comes away with a feeling of admiration and respect for the author.

"The Ragman's Son" is one of the best autobiographies that I have read. This book tells the reader how Kirk Douglas's father sold rags in Amsterdam,NY to make a meager living and support his Family. Beside being one of our all-time great actor's Kirk also broke rules during the filming of "Spartacus" and furthered the careers of actor's thanks to his courage and "sticking his neck out"! KIrk Douglas is now 98 years young and I hope that he surpasses 100! I highly recommend reading this book to all Kirk Douglas fans and also lovers of the 'ol Hollywood!
