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.
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.
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.
its starts right at the beginning of meeting each other upto knowing they are going to lose each other very sad.
patrick swayze is a legend, who loved his wife deeply. god bless him
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.
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.
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.
