The Time of my Life

A memoir by Patrick Swayze & Lisa Niemi

Description: An entertaining and inspiring behind-the-scenes look at a Hollywood life and a remarkable love, told in the words of beloved actor Patrick Swayze and his wife, Lisa Niemi, shortly before he passed away. In a career spanning more than thirty years, Patrick Swayze made a name for himself on the stage and screen with his versatility, passion, and fearlessness. Always a fighter, Patrick refused to let the diagnosis of stage IV pancreatic cancer in February 2008 defeat him. Patrick and Lisa’s bravery inspired legions of fans, cancer patients, and their loved ones, yet this memoir, written with wisdom and heart, recounts so much more. Revealed in vivid detail is Patrick’s Texas upbringing, his personal struggles, his rise to fame, and how his soul mate Lisa stood by his side through it all.

I have been strangely into biographies and memoirs lately. There’s something about seeing the success and struggles and failures and lives of people you admire or have looked up to during your life. Patrick Swayze was a huge part of my childhood. Growing up, Dirty Dancing was my favourite movie. I admired the heck out of all the dancers in that movie. So I really enjoyed the opportunity to read about his life story. I really liked the way this book was written, it was fun and sad, exciting and so interesting! If you are or ever have been a fan of his I highly recommend you read it! So good!

I rate this book
