Denzel Washington5 May 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
I was disappointed in this book. I thought it was going to be his life story instead it was about his career. If I was a new Denzel fan it would have spoiled all his movies for me.It wasn't too bad, I enjoyed it, it was well written.
Good Book6 June 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
A very humanistic story about a movie star who come across like a real person. Every movie mentioned in the book let your see the hard work and thought that went into the decision to act the role of character.
This book is as appealing as its subject26 March 2000 - Published on Amazon.com
I admire Denzel Washington very much as an actor, so I decided to read this book. After I have finished reading it, I was not disappointed with him as a man. This book is an accurate, though modest, description of Washington's life up-to-date (1994-1996). It tells about his childhood, youth, and his family background. Then, the author goes into tracing Washington's life according to the films, he has been making at the time. This book does not have a lot of good pictures and it is not about a "Hollywood Hunk", "the most handsome man", etc. Instead, it talks about a real man, who is very good at acting as well as at living his life of a Hollywood star. If you like Washigton as an actor and as a personality (granted, he is also an undisputedly and exremely charming man), then you should read this book and see how he became what he is now.

WHY DO WRITERS DO THIS??11 July 2009 - Published on Amazon.com
This is an okay book in terms of the man's life (most info is culled from other sources) but when it comes to Denzel Washington's career the author commits an unpardonable sin. He writes way too much about each individual film the actor's made up to the time of the book's publication and then gives away the ending to each and every one of them!
