Format: Hardcover
The autobiography of Patrick Swayze which he did not have a chance to see allows the reader to have a glimpse of his impressively successful life. Although written in the final months of his life when he was fighting losing battle with cancer the book does not concentrate on the final illness, offering instead an honest overview of his life.
Swayze and his wife (and co-author) take the reader on a journey through the actor's life, sharing memories of what was good and bad in it. You'll probably be surprised to find how many troubles Swayze had to go through to achieve his success. The story of his life certainly has an inspirational value because till the very end he remained a fighter, ready to face both the external world and his own weaknesses - the effects of a serious injury while shooting "Letters from a Killer" or a plane crash but also his alcoholism.
"The Time of My Life" offers good reading - if you remember Swayze from "Ghost" or "Dirty Dancing", this is your chance to get to know him a little better.

Format: Hardcover
I pre-ordered this book having spotted its imminent release on the day of Patrick Swayze's untimely death from pancreatic cancer. I devoured it in one sitting, as it's a well written story of a man who despite his own (admitted) faults loved his wife and was passionate about everything he did. The foreward paticularly was very poignant to read as he spoke so positively about beating the cancer, and I'm sure this will be updated for the paperback version.

Patrick Swayze was a fantastic dancer, actor, singer, husband and cowboy and I'm certain his memory will live on in his films. Dirty Dancing, Ghost and Point Break were 3 of my favourites, and the book has now inspired me to find a few others that I'd not yet seen.

For anyone who wants to get to know the real man behind THAT body (!) and a real love story, then read this book. You will not be disappointed.

Format: Hardcover
One of the best books I have read in a long time. I could not put it down and read it in a day. He was an absolutely beautiful human being with an immense amount of talent, strength, will power, passion and love for his wife, it is so heart warming but also very sad at the sometime. You really feel for his wife Lisa in such a sad time of loss for a man she clearly loved very much even when things were difficult.
I loved all of his films and will now be looking out for other films that he mentioned in their book.

This is a must buy.

i have seen most of patrick's movies, my favourite being North & South, this was the first book i have read thou, it was the best read ever, it starts right at the begining of his teenage years and goes through everything he and his wife Lisa done and the hard ships they faced while they built their lifes together, their home everything. The love he shared with lisa was so strong and so lovely...... karina (fife)

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Sian Louise VINE VOICE on 13 Oct. 2009
Format: Hardcover
This was a very emotional read, more so since he died only a month ago.
It was a very honest account of his life and was a little hard in places, especially on reading on his lack of confidence and how he felt about himself, how he wasnt good enough etc.
His love for his wife was wonderful to read about, to know how deeply he cared for. She is/was a lucky woman to have someone who loved her so deeply and he was also for having her.
I don't know what else I can say apart from what everyone else has written, but this book will remain a keeper for me as I have been a fan of his for most of my life an will continue loving and watching his films for years to come. My thoughts are with his family and I hope his wife Lisa will be ok in time to come.
If you love this actor and his films, I definately recommend this book, you won't be disappointed.

Format: Hardcover
'The Time Of My Life' is simply written, but with passion. Patrick's passion for life, dance, horses, acting and most of all, Lisa, his wife of 34 years shine through the whole of this book.
From his early days as a ballet dancer, bullied by the others boys at school, through time spent with his cowboy father and onto his long and successful acting career and love affair with Lisa - the book is entertaining and honest.
