I have never written a review but I have listened to over 400 books. I have listened to two books by Kirk Douglas. This one was simply WONDERFUL Jason Alexander was perfect. I loved every minute and hated to hear it end.

Mr. Douglas has done a fine job of reflecting and giving some very wise words of wisdom to the rest of us. He comes across as someone you would love to sit down and talk with. He has shown his faults and regrets but does not dwell on them. He appears to be a man of convictions based on research and common sense, not on what might be the popular, 'Hollywood' thing to do. I'm open anytime he would like to have coffee.

What made the experience of listening to Let's Face It the most enjoyable?
I had no idea that Kirk Douglas was such a good writer
What did you like best about this story?
It went beyond a basic chronology of events and was particularly well written with insights and observations of an old man with a legitimate claim to be reflective
What does Jason Alexander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I thought he brought an honesty and integrity to representing Kirk Douglas' words
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Contemplations of someone whose story should be listened to
Any additional comments?
Enjoyed it so much I immediately purchased his autobiography I a Spartacus and am thoroughly enjoying that too

Well, you listen to the narrator not Kirk Douglas himself, but that can be forgiven since he was 90 when this book was written. Overall the work is sentimental - it is a meditation on death and love and loss. Anecdotes of old films and their stars are few, which I would have liked, but it was still good to listen to a remarkable man who tells a very human story.
