Publisher's Summary

An interview with Sidney Poitier about his new book, Life Beyond Measure.

Sidney Poitier is one of the most revered actors in the history of Hollywood. He has overcome enormous obstacles in extraordinary times and is a role model for many Americans because of his convictions, bravery, and grace. Poitier reflects on his amazing life in Life Beyond Measure, offering inspirational advice and personal stories in the form of extended letters to his great-granddaughter.

Writing for all who admire his example and who search for wisdom only a man of great experience can offer, this American icon shares his thoughts on love, faith, courage, and the future.

    "By any "measure"--- a good man"

    Always wanted to learn more about Mr. Poitier. The spirit he exhibited. The choices he made. The self-image and example he set. Mr. Poitier represented much more to me, in my yourh, than 'just' an actor.
