Publisher Description

In a career spanning more than thirty years, Patrick Swayze has made a name for himself on the stage, the screen, and television. Known for his versatility, passion and fearlessness, he's become one of our most beloved actors.

But in February 2008, Patrick announced he had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. Always a fighter, he refused to let the disease bring him to his knees, and his bravery has inspired both his legion of fans and cancer patients everywhere. Yet this memoir, written with wisdom and heart, recounts much more than his bout with cancer. In vivid detail, Patrick describes his Texas upbringing, his personal struggles, his rise to fame with North and South, his commercial breakthroughs in Dirty Dancing and Ghost, and the soul mate who's stood by his side through it all: his wife, writer and director Lisa Niemi.

A behind-the-scenes look at a Hollywood life and a remarkable love, this memoir is both entertainment and inspiration. Patrick and Lisa's marriage is a journey of two lives intertwined and lived as one--throughout their years in Hollywood and at home on their working ranch outside Los Angeles, and culminating in the hope and wisdom they've imparted to all who know them. This book will open the door for families, individuals, and husbands and wives to grow, bond and discover entirely new levels of love and sharing, proving that life shouldn't be lived as a series of endings, but rather as the beginning of greater strength and love.

The Time of My Life - a wonderful read

I absolutely loved this book. It’s a beautiful story of the ups and downs of Patrick Swayze’s amazing life. Patrick lays it all bare, being honest about vulnerable moments. Some of the best advice I’ve ever been given is within this book. Truly inspiring.

Love this book

This book not only is one of the most touching , heart wrenching books I’ve picked up in a long time, it’s something I can really find joy in and inspiration. I immediately started reading as soon as I bought it. I couldn’t stop reading about Patrick’s journey. And everything he wrote had such a sense of meaning that really changed the way I see things. I couldn’t help but feel a sense of justice reading this book because as Patrick said, he lived 10 lives in 1, and as I finished reading this book, I noticed he really did, he lived his life to the fullest.
