Billy Barty remembered Sep 14, 2008
When we got this book, we thought it was a biography, and since we are related to him, we wanted to hear more about his family. It was a collection of remembrances of Billy Barty by famous people who knew him. It was different than we expected, but still interesting.

Within Reach Mar 4, 2003
Knowing how much of an impact Billy Barty had on my life, it was amazing to see how many other peoples lives had experienced the same thing. Billy Barty touched the world in a way that not many are able to. I don't see how anyone could read this book and not find themselves walking away with more than they came with!
When shopping, reach for Within Reach Mar 4, 2003
In an age where celebrity bios seem to focus more on carnal antics rather than acting ability or achievements, "Within Reach" is a breath of fresh air. Filled with anecdotes and reminiscences of the late, great Billy Barty by many of his coworkers and fans, the authors Copeland achieve a touching and enjoyable tribute to a beloved actor and celebrated activist.
Touched and Inspired Feb 25, 2003
A friend of mine recommended this book because I enjoy reading biographies. I was familiar with some of the roles Billy Barty portrayed over his career, but was amazed to learn the full extent of his professional achievements. To achieve so much, and give so much, with all of the challenges he personally faced. Amazing. I loved reading the stories written by all of the famous people he worked with. "Within Reach" was a most enjoyable and inspirational read. A true gem.
