Publisher's Summary

The candid, hilarious, and inspiring memoir of the iconic star of Beauty and the Beast, the Hellboy movies, and Sons of Anarchy.
A classically trained actor who cut his teeth in the East Village's off-Broadway scene, Ron Perlman - a Golden Globe winner with starring roles in the Hellboy, Drive, Pacific Rim, and Sons of Anarchy - has traveled an offbeat path to showbiz success. His story involves rising from New York's tough Washington Heights neighborhood, enduring incredible hardships, and ignoring the naysayers who taunted him for his distinctive looks. It's a tale that demonstrates the power of persistence.
With a filmography of nearly 200 credits working alongside countless stars during his 40-year career, Perlman knows the ins and outs of filmmaking. In Easy Street (the Hard Way), he shares his inspiring story for the next generation of performers.

Outstandingly Magnificent

Would you consider the audio edition of Easy Street (the Hard Way) to be better than the print version?

Ron Perlman's voice, sincerity, humor, humbleness and details. Are very genuinely full of heart.

What other book might you compare Easy Street (the Hard Way) to and why?

Easy street is in a class of its own.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes it did. It made complete sense.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The book is full of movingly deep stories. It was a roller coaster ride for me, I willl listen to this forever. Like the frank Sinatra, Sean Connery and Sammy Davis jr. stories. This book truly takes me into a new dimension in my imagination and life.

Any additional comments?

I love Ron Perlman. He is a true inspiration. Please keep up the outstanding work Mr. Perlman.

Ron Perlman is an amazing man

Excellent book and reading! His gruff, foul mouthed exterior hides the soft, intelligent interior of Ron Perlman. It's funny to hear such truths about human existence peppered with MF's. His thoughts about SOA made me a little sad. His final thoughts in chapter 25 about the current state of the world had me saying "Amen, brother." We no longer have heroes (that are worth looking up to), we don't have standards. Ron Perlman is a stand up guy, with a true heart, and real American values. Even if you don't know who he is, you should read this book. He's definitely a unique individual that is one of those people that makes you a better person just for knowing.
