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
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.

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 had high expectations for this book, having loved all his iconic movies, I wanted to know more about the man himself. At the start, I loved it. I couldn't put it down and devoured 100 pages in the first sitting. He described his childhood and being a gymnast/dancer perfectly.

But then it changed. When we got to the movie parts, I know this sounds awful, but I just didn't believe him about many things. He re-wrote the 'Dirty Dancing' script? He just knew that Whoopi Goldberg was perfect for that part in Ghost, and surprise, surprise, she got it? It just didn't add up. Then he'd quote things people had said, when he wasn't even there. How can he have known?

In this book, I wanted him to speak to me. To get to know the real Patrick Swayze. But, I don't think I did. I got to know the Patrick, he wanted me to. I know many of you will disagree. He'll always be an amazing actor, who I'll remember, but I doubt I'll remember this book.

This book lived up to all expectation.I do not normally like autobiographys but this was simple, to the point and from the heart.The courage that this couple have shown over the years and the total belief that they would go far is well documented down to earth and admirable.

Athough Patrick's illness must have been devastating for them to discover the book does not linger on this, it talks of a life filled with dreams, touched by reality and highlights not only the good times but also the troubled ones.

I have always loved Patrick Swayze but this clearly defined what I have always belived, he was just a Texan guy who did good.

I would recommend anyone to buy this book and take away from it lessons that we can all learn from.

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.
