    You can't miss with this as a Days fan!

    I'm a longtime Days Of Our Lives fan and found this book fascinating. The first part of the book is primarily about the Corday family. I had no idea of the hardship and heartache they've experienced and triumphed over. Betty Corday's rules provided in the book an apply and provide inspiration for anyone in their day to day life.

    The story of Days presented is fun to read. Ken Corday disusses all the main characters and the story of the growth and starting over cycle the show has been through over the decades. It was quite eye-opening to someone that isn't at all involved in the business of telelvision.

    Ken Corday writes well and the book flows easily. Obviously, people interested in soap operas and Days in particular will find it the most enjoyable. But, anyone interested in television, family owned businesses or a family's story of survival would enjoy it.

    Great book for Days fans

    Ken does a great job in telling his family's story and the history of Days. I was unaware of all of the pressures of keeping this show alive. The book highlights how dedicated Ken and the Days cast and crew are. I am a busy mom with a 13 month old infant and I managed to read the book in 2 days. I just couldn't put it down. If you love Days, you will love this book!

    Days of our lives

    This is the best book i ever read. I'm a big Days fan. I've been watch Days since 1981.
    I enjoy reading about Ken Corday family how his dad started the show. Its the best soap opera out their. I just wish they would put Days of our Lives on Dvd so we could see how the show started in 1965.

    I wouild highly recommend this book for people who faithfully watch this show.

    I have watched Days of our Lives since 1965 and have never been aware of the history behind it. It gives me a greater appreciation for the Corday family. I have sometimes wondered why a lot of seemingly negative things came about on the show but now I have a better understanding. Ken Corday's account of his life has given me a great sense of respect for him.

    Nice but missing a lot!

    I was a little disappointed I though there would be more information (reading) to this book. The pictures were great.
