Publisher's Summary

When Susan Lucci and All My Children were introduced to the world in 1971, American television changed forever. Susan's character, the beautiful, spirited, and mercurial Erica Kane, was an original. But while millions have enjoyed getting to know Erica's many sides, the woman who plays her has remained a mystery.

In her long-awaited memoir, this very private entertainment icon pulls back the curtain to reveal her own story. Warm, candid, and inviting, All My Life chronicles Susan's journey from her childhood to playing Erica Kane and from finding true love to living that "Cinderella moment" when she finally won her Emmy.

As charming, down-to-earth, and compelling as the woman whose story it tells, All My Life reminds us of the power of dreams and how we can all find the courage and tenacity to make them come true.

    "Susan Lucci- the woman that never had a bad day"

    I am truly disappointed in Susan Lucci and this poor excuse of an autobiography. Susan Lucci is the narrator of course- but the narration has a gushy, over-emotive tone that is really annoying. If you believe this book, she has never had a bad experience in her life- why, I bet she doesn't even go to the bathroom like us regular folks. Clearly a whitewash story and more like a fairy tale than an autobiography. Shame on you, Susan. The people that are your fans are going to be sorely disappointed.

    "Very Entertaining!"

    Susan Lucci's memoir is a very enjoyable listen!

    I must admit--I am a fan from way back in the beginning years of All My Children, so I certainly knew bits and pieces of her story. But what a well-written and beautifully read book--I was truly surprised! She seems to be a lovely lady with a beautiful family, and I will always remember this memoir fondly and wish her well.

    "Cinderella??"

    I have been an AMC fan since the show started when I was 15, and have always admired Erica Cain. I couldn't wait to hear about Susan's life, but have been disappointed in the book. I don't think I can hear one more gushy story of how wonderful her life has been. Perfect husband, perfect children, perfect parents, perfect career. Makes me want to be sick...

    "Soapy soap opera of Susan Lucci"

    Worst memoir ever, very disappointing… I like All My Children and have watched it for years, and I was expecting to hear about some insights of the show: stories behind the scenes, some history of it, because Susan Lucci is a veteran of the show. I wasn’t looking for gossips or dirty laundry, but I was not expecting it to be that boring, cheesy, soapy, and non confrontational. Everyone is great, except maybe “poor” Carrie Ann Inaba . SL is not only a bad actress, and a bad dancer, but she is a bad writer as well – this is my impression after finishing the listening of this book. Plus, I was very annoyed by how SL is jumping constantly from 70ties and 80ties to now times and back; whole book like this, constant flashbacks, no chronological order in it at all, no rules, no logic, very difficult to keep track of events, and very uninteresting events. It is like family members after long time apart during family reunion would talk about everything and anything at same time. So weird, I am wondering if she used any editorial help during writing of this book, so unprofessional it seems. On top of it, she managed to advertise Youthful Essence microdermabrasion and Malibu pilates chair she is a spoke person for .. Gosh, give me a break!
