Like many females, I had a crush on Patrick Swayze resulting from the movie "Dirty Dancing". I knew he'd been a dancer but I didn't realize how much dancing he'd done before his movie career. I was ... Read full review

What an amazing story! Mr. Swayze takes us on a journey of his life from growing up to getting pancreatic cancer. It's very interesting the types of careers he did before acting. A lot of behind the ... Read full review

If you can find the audiobook version of this, I highly suggest getting a copy. I grew up watching Swayze on screen, and felt a tug at my heart when I heard of the cancer. His situation really hit ... Read full review

I can say that I read a lot of books, but I don't think I ever said that a book is a life changing. Well, this one is.
It's definitely book that everyone should read. First of all, I am very grateful
for this book as a way to keep memory of Patrick alive forever. Even though, he tragically passed, reading this book you'll feel very close to him, just like he's talking to you in person.
His life was definitely something to cherish and celebrate forever. Patrick left marks on everyone's heart. He was one of the kind. Such an inspiring figure that will never be forgotten. To me, Patrick Swayze will always be the most loving Hollywood star ever, and not just Hollywood star, but a real down to earth, loving, caring, brave, strong, gentle, beautiful and superb human being. This world is worse place without him. He really did something for each of us, and changed many people's lives one way or another.
I can say for sure, that this book made me a better person at least. On the other hand, I have to say that the book is written perfectly, and I enjoyed the style and content more than I ever did.
When I started reading it, I had no idea of what I was getting myself into, and I just wanted to take my chance and try to read it. And now, after just one day I've read more than a half and I look forward to use every free moment to read this masterpiece.
It's definitely must-read.

A little self absorbed but, that is to be expected since he was an actor. I liked his stories about being on the set of North and South as well as Dirty Dancing.
