He has been one of the brightest stars in Hollywood, a hard-charging actor whose intensity on the screen has been mirrored in his personal life. In Let's Face It, Douglas contemplates what life is all about, writing about current events and looking back at his childhood and his storied, glamorous, and colorful life and career in Hollywood. He writes frankly for the first time about the tragic death of his son Eric from a drug overdose and tells what it was like to recover from several near-death episodes, including a helicopter crash, a stroke, and a cardiac event. He also offers strong opinions on everything from racism and Hurricane Katrina to the war in Iraq and the situation in Israel.

A must-read for every Kirk Douglas fan, this engrossing memoir provides an indelible self-portrait of a great star while sharing the wit and wisdom accumulated over a lifetime.
