4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Read
The first time I went to the US in the 80s I was shocked at the attitude I saw towards African Americans. This book throws this situation wide open with the story of how Sammy D was treated . As a star in Vegas he was not able to walk through the front door of the casino he was appearing in . Could not buy a drink or place a bet. What a world!!!! A good read

3.0 out of 5 stars slow
I love SDJr but this is a very slow read. You couldn't possibly remember all the words and conversations and it doesn't really come away from the racist angle which I agree with but wanted more than just that and I am sure his life was more than that.

I hadn't realised that Sammy Davis Jr had to put up with so much racism in his life.
The book brought home some real issues that continue today. A must read for everyone.

still reading this book. Loved Sammy and only read his early life so far.
What he went through in the army all those years ago was terrible but it made him stronger, he was a lovely talented human being.
Looking forward to reading the rest.

To chopped, to much name dropping, quite difficult to follow , but stayed with it to the end. On the whole not as good as expected.

I would recommend this to anyone that is a fan of the Rat Pack or just Sammy, brilliant story telling his early and how hard it was for a black performer in America befor the way. Thought provoking and very emotional the things this wonderful man suffered.
