    Description

    Yes I Can is the self-portrait of one of the extraordinary men of our time, who became a figure of controversy because he dared to live his life not as a Negro but as a man. "I've got to be a star like another man has to breathe" writes Sammy Davis. "I've got to get so big, so powerful, so famous that the day will come when they'll look at me and see a man, and then somewhere along the way they'll notice he's a Negro."

    Yes I Can “is:...one of the most candid, engrossing and important American autobiographies of our time,” wrote the N.Y. Herald Tribune Book Editor and Critic Maurice Dolbier. "One of the really great autobiographies ever written." Brother Judd, Audible.com.

    Great story boringly read

    What did you like best about Yes I Can? What did you like least?

    The whole background of Sammy's life and over comings, his rise above adversity is a great story of his tenacity and grace in the front line of prejudice. The reading by Burt Boyar spoils a great bio.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Yes I Can?

    His army experience during WW2

    What didn’t you like about Burt Boyar’s performance?

    His boring monologue, basically there is no emphasis of any in all his reading, it's beige while Sammy's life was technicolour.

    Could you see Yes I Can being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    A great movie, I'll leave others to decide on the actors.

    Sammy Davis was the performer of all times. . .

    What did you love best about Yes I Can?

    While Sammy's life appeared glamorous, the book tells a very different story. It reveals the truth behind the broad, make-believe smile and the eyes that spoke louder than the voice.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by Burt Boyar?

    This book should have been narrated by a better voice. . .the one thing I did not like about the book.

    A Story Beautifully Told

    Burt Boyar was emotional, REAL, loving and wonderful. I was moved to tears at times. I loved it. Would read again.

    An amazing biography

    This is one person I knew nothing about, and I'm glad that I listened. It is a well written and fun biography.

    Loved Sammy

    Sammy Davis Jr. was one of my favorite entertainers. I don't think there is any person, living or dead, who could do what Sammy did. singer, dancer, actor, comedian, voice actor -- he was Mr. Entertainment.

    Fascinating story!

    Shocking what Mr. Davis went through in his life! Not only was he a multi talented man, and one of the best singers in the world, but he was kind, polite, highly articulate, and wise. My only beef with this book was that the gentleman that reads Mr. Davis’ story, mumbles all his words together making it difficult to understand him. But this book is full of interesting facts, and celebrity stories. His was quite a life!

    A Fascinating Story About A Fascinating Man

    If you have any interest in a real human story about one of the most fascinating entertainers ever, then this book is it. From his early struggles to his reaching the highest highs, Sammy’s story is a lesson in determination and resilience. His 1st person account of the blatant racism he overcame, to meeting Sinatra, to becoming the hottest ticket everywhere, to the Rat Pack days and marrying a white woman in the 60’s is riveting. I was lucky enough to have seen him perform live at Caesars Palace in VEGAS so this book has extra value to me. Well worth the investment. Such a great American success story. Enjoy.

    Incredible book.. a book for all ages!

    This book is incredible! You won't want to put it down! It transcends time and is really appropriate with everything going on today regarding race and prejudice and how one hero handled it.
