I watched Y&R way back in the 80s and 90s so I am familiar with mr Braeden but hearing his life story had me speechless. The fact that he narrates makes it so much more - hearing the emotion and laughter straight from him that you wouldn't have from someone just reading it to you. Have huge respect for the man! Thanks for sharing your story.

What made the experience of listening to I'll Be Damned the most enjoyable?
I loved hearing the author tell the story in his own voice and words. About halfway through the book, I began to realized that "I'll be damned" must be one of his oft used phrases and can be used in many different circumstances meaning different things (much as the word "fine"). I did watch Y&R back in the mid-80's for a year or so but wasn't really a fan. I did think that Eric Braeden might have an interesting story. I was right, he's a fascinating man's man.
What does Eric Braeden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His own laconic style of speaking and his gentle laughter at certain passages was genuine.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There was a moment that brought tears to my eyes. I could tell this was an important moment in Eric Braeden's life as well.
I feel as though this voice has been in my life for most of my life. I am amazed at the person who is behind the character of Victor Newman.
What an amazing person you are Hans. Your achievements are simply incredible. A great family man, appreciative of your adopted country and fiercely proud of your heritage. I am currently touring through Germany and Austria so it was very real to me. We were just in Wurzburg where the guide explained how sad they were at what happened to the Jews that decided to stay, after they were warned to escape, as t.he all perished. There are several memorials dedicated to them.
I am so glad you wrote your story. Thank you. See you next week as Victor when I return to South Australia.
