More About The Time of My Life by Patrick Swayze; Lisa Niemi
 
 
 
Overview
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.

In the wake of his death after a long battle with stage four pancreatic cancer, Swayze's memoir offer new information on his heroic fight as well as his legendary career in Hollywood. Along with his wife, Lisa, Swayze recounts his childhood and his first acting experiences as well as his romantic life and personal battles. The writing is as raw, intense, and honest as it gets, and hearing Swayze's voice once more is deeply moving. His delivery is as professional as his attitude, as passionate as his personality. While there is no shortage of emotion, listeners will find this to be less dirge than a celebration of Swayze's life and achievements. An Atria hardcover. (Oct.)
