9780060014049: My Stroke of Luck

Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas breaks the barrier yet again with his new book MY STROKE OF LUCK. Within it he shares with readers, for the first time, his experiences and inspirations in a punishing battle to return to life after a stroke. His affliction attracted attention worldwide during the Academy Awards when he accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award to a standing ovation from a tearful Hollywood crowd. It was his first public appearance since the debilitating attack. Even more honest and insightful than his previous book CLIMBING THE MOUNTAIN, Kirk Douglas discusses his anguish at his plight and at the same time, he offers advice, exercises and lessons he learned while in recovery that lifted him from deep depression back to a joyful, loving husband, father and grandfather. He even managed to renew his professional life at the age of 83 as a working actor in the 1999 film Diamonds with Lauren Bacall. His emotional and poignant closing is sure to draw a tear and leave an impression on readers moved by his humorous, memorable, touching and helpful words in what Douglas admits will most likely be his final book.
