The Other Side of Me

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Author of over a dozen bestsellers, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, and creator of some of television's greatest hits, Sheldon has seen and done it all, and now in this candid memoir, he shares his story for the first time.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 31, 2005 – 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 tone that engages listeners. Some of his vocal caricatures for secondary characters seems questionable, instilling them with comical or bland voices that disrupt the story rather than enhance it. When 88-year-old Sheldon reads the Afterword, his voice lacks O'Malley's energy. As a bonus feature, Sheldon is also interviewed about his life and the writing of this book. Though he repeats some anecdotes from his book, listeners will still enjoy the additional words from the author.

My best writter

will be difficult to overcome the death of one of the most interesting writers in every story apacionados fun and captivating. his books are a delight full of international intrigue and stories cleverly created for the enjoyment of those who read all his works and particularly as Mr sheldon think there will be nobody! So terrible vacuum that has left those who loved their works! God have the glory and thanks for providing so much entertainment


Mr. Sheldon is a writer whose stories can transport his readers to another place and time of his own creation. I have gladly and anxiously awaited any thing he has chosen to share with me. His autobiography was enlightening and inspiring. What he was able to persevere through to become the man his family adored, his friends respected, and his fans adored is testament to his strength of character and determination. Thank you Sidney.

Sidney Sheldon

This guy changed my life with his books. I was 13 when I first read memories of midnight, and from that book on I became a avid reader, which has really benefited me throughout life. Thanks to the great Sidney Sheldon. A class A writer that I will forever remember and cherish.
