The book was very easy to read and unlike many other autobiographies that I've read this one was a real page turner. J. Morales, Bx, NY

I admit I was a fan, and his signature songs some of my favorites. But the background of an era I was too young to appreciate is so impressive and so moving, it should make this book a "must have" on everyone's shelf. Oh it's fun to read the little asides of his association with well known people, but that this octogenarian is still here to give us a lesson in social justice is precious. Please appreciate this man and his life while we still have him around. This should be a best seller for content and history. Oh and yes...he's still a heartthrob who is as comfortable with the Muppets as he is with Steven Colbert. Google it !

Had no idea Mr. Belefonte was so politically active - his contributions to our society go beyond a beautiful voice and face - he has a beautiful spirit.

An excellent walk down the path that led to the Harry Belafonte everyone loves but know very little about. A very compelling and interesting read..

What is love? When your hope is gone. What is love? When your faith has run out. What is love? When you have already given up. (CHORUS) Love is what gets us by. If we just understand. We know it won't be, won't be like the stories, but thats how it should be, baby. But we can't change life. OPINION OF THE SONG SO FAR AT RES THREE

Hi commnt at res two if you like my short song and i might write more................................................................................. I think the words in my head. But something else comes instead. I tried to hard to forgive you. But it is hard to. I hated all those days. We just ran out of ways. Because of those nights. We had a lot of fights. I just couldnt make it right. REFRAIN: Why can't I keep you? I know you feel it too. I love the sound of your voice. But i don't have a chocie. But i love you.

(I am twelve years old now and i wrote this song when i was eleven. I just found it and thought i should get peoples opinion on it. Please give me ur honest opinion on what u think of this song at the second result.if u dont like it please tell me and if u want to u can say y u dont like it i wont b offended. Im not going to worry about the grammer becuase i have to go soon and i want o get this done before hand. Thanks for reading!) <br> <br> I look at myself and feel like no one cares. Nobody would even know if i leave. So why do i stay? My friends keep telling me it will get better. They say there is a plan for me. They say rememer these words and you will go far! <br> (Chorus) Look at the bright side and say things will be fine. Say goodbye to the bad and say hello to the good. Look at the bright side and say things will be fine. I promise you. We promise you things will b fine. <br> Another night going to bed crying. Another night with another fight i cant seem to end. Why cant they just understand? Why wont they understand? I call up my friend to get someone i trust. I explained what happened and told her why i was cryin'. She said. So you forgot what i said. <br> (chorus) Look at the bright side and say things will be fine. Say goodbye to the bad and say hello to the good. Look at the bright side and say things will b fine. I promise you. We promise u things will be fine. <br> I said thanks for the help. It really means a lot. That next day i started to think. I decided to start brand new. The world may push me down but it cant keep me from getting right back up. (Chorus) and i will look at the bright side and say things will b fine. Say goodbye to the past and say hello to the good. I will look at the bright side and say things will be fine. They promised me.. i promise you things will b fine. ( please put comments in the next result. Thanks so much for reading this!)
