In this luminous memoir, a true American icon looks back on his celebrated life and career. In his own words, it is an introspective look at what has informed his performances and his life. Exploring the nature of sacrifice and commitment, pride and humility, rage and forgiveness, and the price of artistic integrity, a picture of a man emerges seeking truth, passion and balance in the face of limits - his own and the world's.
A triumph of the spirit, 'The Measure Of A Man' captures the essential Poitier.
