In his long, impressive career, he has been hailed as America's finest classical stage actor, earning acclaim for his portrayals of Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard III, and King Lear. He has worked alongside and become friends with the giants of American culture, from Joseph Papp to George C. Scott, from James Earl Jones to Oliver Stone.Keach's memoir begins with the riveting account of his arrest in London for cocaine possession. He takes readers through his trial and his time at Reading Jail as he battles his drug addiction and then fights to revive his career. Keach poignantly reveals his acting insecurities and relationship struggles. All in All is full of priceless behind the scenes Hollywood moments and friendships—from his late-night pool and backgammon showdowns with John Huston to his passionate relationship with Judy Collins.

Stacy Keach has lived a very interesting life. In the book All in All: An Actor’s Life On and Off the Stage Keach talks about his career as an actor and his disgrace of being arrested for cocaine. The most interesting part of the book is Keach’s description of trying to rebuild his career after serving jail time.

Stacy Keach is an incredible actor. No one can ever take that away from him. In his memoir All in All he reveals his dark side. The story begins with his arrest for trying to smuggle cocaine onto an airplane. Through his words we come to feel his battle with drug addiction and battle to revive his career after his drug bust and prison time. All in All is a very entertaining book. I definitely recommend it.

No one knows Stacy Keach better than Stacy Keach himself. I like the way he tells his story. He's honest about himself, and tells his story in a direct, no nonsense style that keeps the reader turning pages to learn more about the actor and the man.
