    Love the title: “I’ll be damned”, I always chuckle when he says that on the show. That part of the title I can see EB coming up with. Now the second part of the title “…led me to America’s daytime drama…” that sounds like some CBS PR person wanted that in there. LOL! Sounds like a good read.

    He attacks all his twitter people who disagree he attacks his co stars he throws chairs at directors ! Etc etc Yow he is a real peach ugh


    Tomas Torquemada replied

    OMG! He’s the only person to ever do this, right?

    It’s fine that you don’t like him. But it’s always better to focus on the folks you like rather than the ones who irritate you.

    I think the character he portrays is played out. I usually find there’s no suspense to the characters actions or mustache twirling. So I fast forward to the characters who do engage me.

    I agree. And I, too, chucked at the title. So Eric.

    I hope that he’ll be narrating the audiobook. As of now, on, the narrator is only listed as “To Be Announced.” Eric Braeden’s life story in his own words will be great, but in his own voice will be even better.

  4. k/kay says:

    Love to see if he tells us his reasoning behind knocking someone’s teeth out??!


  5. Maureen Rieder says:

    I love the title too!! I can hear him saying that, for sure! It’s awesome!


    Maureen Rieder replied

    I usually don’t end up reading very much, but I have great respect for Eric Braeden on so many levels, and I am quite excited that he has taken time to write and share his story. I know it will be a fascinating read and I can’t wait!

    I love Eric Braeden and can’t wait to read his memoir.


  7. Patrick says:

    I don’t give a damn

    I’ll be damned… is he that smarmy that he rises above the name dropping of his “wiki” resume

    he’s a soap opera actor… the bottom of the barrel… darned tootin he’s less

    so he bellows and acts out

    he’s character is bigger than he is… so he’ll prop for longevity

    I don’t give a ratsw ass that he’s been titanic

    he’s sunk to new lows


  8. mark says:

    LMAO I love that title!


  9. Timmm says:

    I hope he does a book tour! He and Anthony Geary are two soap icons on the daytime Mount Rushmore!


    nancy dillingham replied

    Now when is Tony G. going to publish the book he has said he is working on????? Your guess is as good as mine. And who wants to read it? Mmmmmm. Maybe I do and Genie? LOL!


    Timmm replied

    I hope the letter he left Laura addressed to “Angel” is published since we never knew if she opened it!
