About the Author
From the athor: Why write another book on Dirty Dancing? With the amazing milestone of Dirty Dancing turning twenty-five years old in August 2012 and people not getting enough of the movie, it seemed like there was more to tell about Dirty Dancing. And I discovered that I was right.
While writing the book, I once again was struck by the depth of connection people have with Dirty Dancing and Patrick Swayze. Dirty Dancing will continue to touch people's hearts for all of time. Patrick Swayze will "live on" through his brilliant performance in this iconic film.
I give my gratitude to all of the people who made Dirty Dancing happen. I give my gratitude to Patrick Swayze for giving us such a wonderful legacy of work and his extraordinary spirit which continues to provide such inspiration.
