Just read the book "My Stroke of Luck" by Kirk Douglas and must say that I had to find a kleenex.
It is wonderful and I have so much respect for this man as an actor, husband, father, friend and "child of God". What a very kind, loving, brave man. I am happy that I picked up this small little book at my locan library. Had no idea that he is such a "Little Hero" and I am proud of him--and I am no one in particular--just another "child of God" and I appreciate him. How proud he must be of his lovely wife and fine sons and his life. My best wishs to them all.

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to Kirk and to let him know that during this weekend we are watching here in Israel all his movies on T.V.

I'm, at present, reading this book. I could hardly sit down here to write a comment except that I want to find more copies to share with friends. It makes me laugh, makes me cry, and bust my buttons with pride at the wonder of Kirk as a person. I know a number of others who have had strokes or other life-threatening physical problems for which this book is an inimitable inspiration. Must sign off, and go seek out more copies for my friends. Thanks Kirk.

I think what Kirk went through, including the experience of REAL Depression makes him the Great emphatic and understand person that he is. He is genuine.
After you read this book, you get to like him even more.
