Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Sweeney, who won a fan-voted "America's Favorite Villain" Emmy for her 10-year portrayal of Sami on Days of Our Lives, has written up the details of her life for her fans. The 27-year-old begins, dissertation-like, by outlining the contents. Her story is cheerful and bland, covering her beginnings at age four as a commercial actress, her audition for Days, her social life in an L.A. suburbs high school, her bout with dieting in thinness-obsessed Hollywood, her courtship and marriage with her policeman husband (including a long description of finding the perfect wedding dress) and, always, her appreciation for her fans. The book is padded with several chapter-long descriptions of convoluted Days plots (which she advises readers to skip if they've seen the episodes in question), as well as the details of her worm-eating guest appearance on Fear Factor. Although Sweeney emphasizes several times that she is no expert, she doesn't hesitate to give advice about love, dieting, exercise, planning a wedding and how to succeed as an actress. And for young girls, her advice, although certainly not unique, isn't bad: it's more important to be healthy and happy than to look like a model; a few close relationships are better than being popular; don't rush sex; and "You don't need to be perfect to have a successful life. You just need to be yourself." Who could argue with that? 16-page photo insert not seen by PW.

From the Publisher

Michael Logan - TV Guide

It's damn nervy of Alison Sweeney to write her autobiography at age 27, but we're glad she did. This is one young star who actually has something to say. Sweeney, who plays Sami on Days of Our Lives, just hit bookstores with All The Days of My Life (So Far)(Kensington Books), a sweet, dishy memoir cum self-esteem guide with a strong message for her fans: Be yourself. Since hitting Days as a chubby teen, Sweeney has never fit the mold of soap "perfection" - nor has she tried to - yet she's risen above her chopstick-thin surgically enhanced peers to become a major success. She does life her way, and wants to help her readers do the same. And that - in this era of The Swan and Extreme Makeover - is a very cool thing to put out there.

Format: Paperback
I've been a fan of Alison's character, Sami Brady, on Days of Our Lives since 1993... so when I received this book as a gift, I knew it would be nothing short of amazing.

People either love or despise her (Sami) and this book talks candidly about Alison's personal and professional life, as well as behind-the-scenes insider tell-all secrets. Alison talks openly about her life, her loves, passions, her struggle with weight in the acting industry, and her supportive family throughout her childhood acting. She talks about her real-life relationships with her co-workers, some attended her prom, some attended her wedding, etc. There are even pictures of other cast members with her with real-life wedding pictures as well as magazine covers

I gotta say though, as a die-hard fan of Sami, I was NOT disappointed. This book told me everything I always secretly wanted to know about Sami's life. Alison was very detailed in explaining the reasoning behind Sami's behaviors.

One of my favorite parts of the books was hearing how an old woman actually hit Alison on the street with a purse because she hated Sami so much and said, "Give the baby back!"

This is such a good and helpful book. I bought it for my teenage daughter who is feeling a little picked on and insecure in school recently, and I swear she hasn't put it down. I had to stop her in between chapters to ask if it was good, and all she could say was "wow, I didn't think a star like her would feel the same way as me!" Thanks Ali, for sharing your life and helping others.

Any fan of Days of Our Lives would love to read this book. It is filled behind the scenes fun facts as Alison tells her story of how she was a Days of Our Lives fan one day and on the show the next. She goes in detail about her struggle with her weight and gives tips for others on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. There are pictures from points of interest in her life and behind the scenes photos from Days. This book is very well written and easy to read. I really enjoyed it and I think others will too!

I just finished this awesome book and took away from it some very valuable life lessons. Ali is mature way beyond her years and her true sense of self comes shining through in this book. I had only really known her through her role as Sami, and I can tell that she shares with me an intrigue toward a character that you love to hate. I just hope that Ali will do a follow-up book down the road so we can get her outlook on motherhood, post-pregnancy weight, etc.

I got this book and finished it all in the same weekend! If you like Hollywood stories, tales of teenage angst and an all around fun, fast read with some morals and lessons thrown in, this book is for you! Ali tells the story of her life growing up on Days of Our Lives, funny memories about shooting episodes and the trials and tribulations that made her who she is today. She talks about high-school, dating, meeting and marrying her husband and much more. Trust me, this is a great read.

Go buy this book!!! I loved all the stories Alison shares about Days of our Lives, and the behind-the-scenes stuff. She also talks a lot about losing weight, and how hard it is in Hollywood. I think this book is so great!

When I found out about his book, I went to the library and checked it, and I was not dissapointed! I loved this book! I am a big fan of Days of Our Lives, especially Sami, and I love Ali's work, she is an excellent actress and is extremely talented! The book was really directed at people my age, and it was very interesting to me, I could'nt put it down... and then I read it again! I just think that this is a really good book for anyone who loves Days of Our Lives, because Alison really gives an up close look into what it's really like to be in Salem!

Watching Ali play Sami on "Days" I always wondered what she would be like in real life...this book says it all! She is nothing like her character except in her strength of personality and will, as a matter of fact she seems like a really nice, normal person who has gone through what so many of us have! People being mean, trying to be popular and fit in, there's something for everyone to relate to. Plus, you get all the dirt on what goes on behind the scenes at "Days"! This is a great book for fans and for teens dealing with insecurities and growing up.
