"It’s also about the travel journeys I have taken, the environment, the history, the people, the language, the food — all those things." DAYS also got its own chapter."The good thing is, I never left with a bitter taste. There is no blame game because there was more great than there wasn’t in that experience," he says.

"Thaao Penghlis enjoyed tea for two with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and fitted Robert Redford for a suit—suggesting that the then­–matinee idol shed a few pounds—before landing career-defining roles on General Hospital and Days of Our Lives. He pursued a career as an actor to fund his unyielding desire for spiritual and exotic travel and became one of daytime television’s most enduring characters on Days of Our Lives. His memoir weaves his deep Greek and Australian heritage with Hollywood escapades and captivating journeys to places few visit."

Thaao has delighted soap audiences with his portrayal of the dashingly good Tony DiMera and the evil Andre DiMera on Days Of Our Lives and the even more evil Victor Cassidine on General Hospital where he currently has appeared as Dr. Ulbrecht's former lover. He has traveled the world and kept his many fans apprised of these trips on Twitter. Always a fan favorite his book will be widely accepted and read.

Days Of Our Lives can be seen weekdays on NBC at 1 p.m.
