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.
