rabck from MyssCyn; Patrick did a lot that I had no idea about. He played football, almost made the Olympic team until a knee injury forced him to stop, and was a ballet dancer. I don't agree with his downplaying injuries, and thereby making things worse, nor his self destructive drinking. But, he did provide a good glimpse into his life and the different things he and Lisa did. ( )

I love Patrick Swayze. I would watch dirty dancing over and over again as a kid. I think the book portrays that Patrick had a good life and was happy in his final years. ( )

I love Patrick Swayze and listening to his book, his words, his voice brought it all alive. I laughed, cringed and cried. Excellent telling of his hard road to fame. ( )

Patrick Swayze & Lisa Niemi have managed to review their lives at a very critical stage. This autobiograpgy has given me a wider perspective on how talented they both were as well as how rare and special of a love they both were blessed with. ( )
