P.292 "In January 2008, movie star Patrick Swayze was given the worst news of his life. What he hoped was just a stomach ache was actually stage four pancreatic cancer, a diagnosis that is fatal within a year for 79% of the people to whom it is given. Remarkably, Patrick is not just alive a year later but continuing his treatment, and responding well.

But this book isn't just the story of Patrick's fight against cancer. In the public eye from the early 1980s, this is the story of a remarkable life and career. Intended as a low budget, straight-to-video production, Dirty Dancingbecame a cult hit and remains one of the most enduring films of the 80s. Ghost cemented Patrick as a hugely bankable star, in a role that has had a considerable cultural impact. Most recently Patrick has returned to the public's adoring arms in TV's The Beast. This book will chronicle Patrick's personal life as well -- including his treatment for alcoholism following the death of his father and sister's sudden death.

What has remained a constant in Patrick's life is his marriage and Patrick and Lisa's love story is inspiring, honest, heartfelt and transcends the typical celebrity marriage. This is a book that anyone who has faced cancer or a terminal illness can turn to: Lisa and Patrick have shown the world that cancer isn't just a diagnosis given to one individual, but a disease that can bring a household together or pull a family apart.

Bold, honest and inspiring, Patrick Swayze's memoir is the story of a remarkable man's life and career and of his refusal to give in."

This is an absolute must. Truly amazing read. Loved it.

Oooopssss...thought I really fancy reading that as I like any kind of autobiography and just clicked through to buy the book and got a message saying I'd already bought it in October 2016...needless to say it is in HUGE stack of unread books I have on my Kindle but didn't realise the stack had got so big that I'd started forgetting buying books...on the plus side they don't take up much space compared to the piles of "hard copy" books I already have in various places around the house...you really do know you should stop buying them when the only available place you have left to store them is the loft...lol....

Or the stairs..

Or the stairs..


Unfortunately I live in a Bungalow otherwise I'd have definitely utilised the stairs as book storage space and would describe it as a staggered bookcase with seating beside each shelf

Only have 3 steps up to the front door and as those are outside I fear any books placed on them would get ruined
