    1. This is a GREAT autobiography. I didn't know a lot about Sheldon, other than the fact that he was the creator/producer of the tv sitcom "I Dream of Jennie."Sheldon had an indomitable spirit: everytime he got knocked down, he got back up. And he got knocked down a lot. And rather than becoming cynical, he regarded negative experiences as learning opportunities, and kept moving forward. He worked with a lot of the greats: Cary Grant, Shirley Temple, Fred Astaire, Judy GarlandYou will have a hard t [...]

    2. Para os admiradores de Sidney Sheldon!Gostei muito. É uma autobiografia, escrita com a mesma mestria com que escreveu todos os seus romances. Prende desde a primeira frase! Leva-nos a conhecer os seus sucessos e fracassos, os seus medos, as suas inseguranças, os seus problemas emocionais, mas acima de tudo faz-nos ter vontade de virar a página seguinte e a "nunca fechar o livro demasiado cedo", a nunca desistir de continuar a escrever o romance que é a vida! Felizmente, para nós leitores, S [...]

    3. Added 2/22/10: Sydney Sheldon (1917-2007)I recently listened to an audio version of the following autobiography: The Other Side of Me by Sidney Sheldon (first published in 1995). He tells about how he got his start as a screenplay writer in Hollywood after many ups and downs. Eventually, he won an Oscar for writing "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" which was chosen as the Best Original Screenplay of 1947. He also won a shared award for the writing of "Easter Parade" in 1949. After going into TV [...]

    4. It was a thrill to read this book, considering Sidney Sheldon s novels have been a favourite of mine for decades. What a brilliant, fecund writer! As we learn from this work in the first part of his life he brought entertainment to countless people by being the man behind some great movies, and television series'. He grew up in relative poverty, the fact eg that his family would remorselessly squeeze out any vestiges of toothpaste from the tube resonates with an African like myself. He loved the [...]

    6. I really loved reading this book. I know Sidney Sheldon was an excellent story teller of Thriller and Suspense. But I never has the faintest idea that he had won Oscar award for best writer. I have read a few novels of him and all were great thrillers. I am a big fan of SS but once when i realised his life saga, the admiration really went up.Grown up in a struggling family, Sidney was in a loss of Hope and Happiness. Everyone in his family forced to work to meet their daily needs. He was despera [...]

    7. Sheldon writes his memoir as an intense and emotional rollercoaster as only he can with battling bipolar disorder nearly his entire life. From his suicide attempt at age 17 in 1934 to the publication of his first book in 1969, Sheldon has worked hard for his accomplishments.His prolific writing career reads like a grocery list of productions spanning film, theatre, television and books. O'Malley guides listeners through the author's adventures in Hollywood and Broadway with a lively and animated [...]

    8. *Trigger Warning: suicide ideation*"But I'd hate to see you close the book too soon and miss all the excitement that could happen to you on the next page--the page you're going to write."I don't often go for the people behind the camera/microphone when it comes to memoirs, but I couldn't resist Sidney Sheldon's when I read he discusses being bipolar. And the book opens with his father talking him out of a suicide attempt, and the conversation they shared hit me so damn hard. I clung to Sheldon's [...]

    9. What did I expect? This is an autobiography, so it isn't as interesting as his usual fictional books.The interesting thing about this however is that one can't STOP reading it also. I loved how he told the story of his uncle who was broke and had to 'steal' his work from him which won (lol!). It also gives one the sights and scenes of long ago when people like Cary Grant were big and a good insight on how Hollywood really IS. Sheldon teaches us that you have to have determination coupled with gu [...]

    10. It was the title that caught my eye. A clever play with words, it is indicative both of arguably his best novel, The Other Side Of Midnight, and the story of the private Sheldon.You have to hand it to the guy. He's had a career as a usher, bar-boy, druggist, bell-boy, hollywood, broadway, playwright, screenplay, nibbled at direction and production before finally becoming what he is now.In short, this is an account of Sheldon's life and is an interesting read. This is not the regular self-promoti [...]

    11. Frankly, I was kind of bored in the middle. He focused too much on Hollywood and not much on the novels but I guess that's what it is all about 'The other side of me'. Still, its great to know so much about him. The book is really slow compared to his novels but let's not compare autobiography with fictional books.

    12. رائع سيدني شيلدون وهو يتحدث عن الجريمة، رائع وهو يغوص في أعماق الروح الإنسانية، رائع وهو يحفر عقولنا ويزرع فيها الكثير من الدهشة، رائع وهو يمارس ألعاب الخفة في خيالنا، رائع وهو يتحدث عن الأمراض النفسية ثم يسخرها بطريقة روائية ابتكارية لتتنامى في عقولنا بطريقة إلهامية هكذا [...]

    13. As an author myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir. Although I had read several of Sidney Sheldon's books in the eighties, I had no idea that he was also a prolific writer of Broadway musicals, Hollywood screenplays and television series. It was also a surprise to find out that he suffered from bipolar syndrome, which affects many creative people and is a challenge to manage.I particularly enjoyed reading about how Sheldon began his writing career. He certainly didn't start as a storyteller, [...]

    14. but ready or not, life goes on.America had had him in worst of it's time where he had predicaments and owned inadequacies then, that a third world country has today Except not much money. He aspired affluence and some fame too. His family was a turbulent one, Nothing new in West or in other Authors' Biographies.He left his college and involved himself in petty jobs to cover their home expenses alongside he struggled to do something that involves writing. he dabbled with radio station, song writi [...]

    15. no wonder why many of Sidney's lead characters had a " horrible past " and they had to fight in a hard battle of life to gain a properly life. it was Sidney's past had experienced before. his Struggle to earn living was tough, rejection, disappointing, bitterness, he had them once.i found myself was mesmerized by the pages i read about him. he had bipolar and he wasn't confident about himself, but as he said, " never go out when your elevator at the bottom, just hold on over and over again "in c [...]

    16. i've just finished reading this book a few weeks ago, and i learned a lot of things about my favorite author Sidney Sheldon, like he didn't start as a novelist (didn't become famous cos of his novels). he worked odd jobs to support not only his family but his dream as well. that he really was a master-- of almost everything. but human enough to feel depressed at times.I kind of relate to his story, the manic depression part of it (bipolar).overall, this one's a great "ending" for Mr. Sheldon's.

    17. I picked this autobiography up because I've read and enjoyed most of his books. I have to say I was surprised - I had thought Sheldon was just a best-selling author, I hadn't realised he had a ton of Broadway plays, films and TV shows to his name. He had a tough upbringing and suffered from what we would now know to be bipolar disorder. He also had a difficult personal life, marrying three times, losing a baby daughter to spina bifida and then having to return a newly-adopted baby to her origina [...]

    18. Very simple and boring autobiography. It feels like I am reading some notes. like someone just telling what he went through but didn't tell the feelings, depth, how life surprises us, expressionless no enthusiasm less thrill. It could be much better. I just turned the pages to finish this book. Only quote that touched to my heart was " Life is like a novel. It's filled with suspense. You have no idea what is going to happen until you turn the page.

    19. I really loved this autobiography of Sidney Sheldon.I had never read any of SS's work and was wondering where to start from and finally found this. Thought to start from his autobiography itself.I really enjoyed his writing and just got hooked up myself to the book. His biography shows life is not as easy as it is seen by others. And we should never give up. Try and try until you succeed. And yes , "Life is like a Novel. Its filled with suspense. You have no idea what's going to happen until you [...]

    20. Didn't know much about Sidney Sheldon. So was eager to know this great writer, his life, his stories. He worked his way to the top. From nothing he built his career as a playwright, script writer and became a novelist. He had success, failures, ups and downs, but one thing he never lost that is Faith. Having the faith, self belief. A great inspirational book.

    21. "Life is like a novel" This is how Sidney Sheldon summarizes his journey in life. Having decided to take his father's advice of not committing suicide & keep turning pages, Sheldon became able to overcome all the obstacles & achieve success. Regardless of the painful moments he had sometime, the elevator remained up for him! His hard-work, patience & determination were incredible.

    22. I don't know if it possible for me to give a Sidney Sheldon anything less than a 5. I think its quite a big thing what he went through and in more instances I found him quite relatable. its good to know that your favorite god like writer was human beneath all that

    28. (Awesome! and I really like it. 4/5*). Memoar ini diceritakan seperti novel dengan menggunakan sudut pandang orang pertama, si penulis itu sendiri. Penulis menceritakan bagaimana kisah hidupnya, di mana dia hidup di tengah-tengah keluarga yang selalu ribut. Tapi dibalik itu semua kedua orangtuanya amat menyayanginya. Tak hanya dengan kondisi kehidupan orangtuanya yang kurang baik, kondisi keuangan di kehidupannya juga mengalami hal yang sama. Itu juga yang mengharuskannya untuk bekerja di usiany [...]

    29. Sheldon, Sidney. The other side of me, Warner Books, New York, 2005. Hardcover, pages 363. Rating: 9/10 Sometimes, from a distance, we know a person well for many years. We get an opportunity to get closer, learn more and are stunned to know how much we didn’t know about him. The memoir by Sidney Sheldon with an apt name reveals to the readers his incredible life and superhuman achievements. I want you to read this book so much that you should stop at this point and not read anything further i [...]
