About the Author
Patrick Swayze was a three-time Golden Globe-nominated actor best known for his leading-man roles in two of the most beloved pictures of all time: “Ghost” and“Dirty Dancing.” Along with these high grossing, history-making films, many of his other movies have achieved a cult following, and his television series, “The Beast,” was a critical success. Also a singer/songwriter, dancer, and stage actor, Swayze grew up in Houston, Texas. He passed away in September 2009.
Lisa Niemi wrote, directed and produced the film “One Last Dance” in 2004. She has held many film, television, and Broadway roles and also wrote, directed and starred in the play “Without a Word” with her husband, garnering six Drama Critics Awards. Before turning to directing and acting, Niemi began her professional life as a dancer. Lisa resides on a ranch outside Los Angeles.

How anyone can think of giving this a negative review, I can't comprehend.
I had always liked the films that I had seen of Patrick's and was very sad at his passing. I had no idea of his personal journey .
I am very grateful for Patrick and indeed Lisa for sharing their " Love Story " with us.
Feel all the richer for it.
Remember the last words he spoke in Ghost and hope that he did indeed get to take all the love with him.
Yes this wonderful man somehow packed ten lifetimes into his short lifetime. A beautiful man with a great big heart, sincere, honest and respected by more people than he could ever know. 'Buy this dvd and a big box of tissues, it will break our heart but it is something to treasure. 'Thanks for everything' Mr Patrick Swayze. God bless your sweet soul
It's a revelation with no holds barred
The book is fast paced and you can't help thinking it's an attempt to capture his life and achievements without dwelling too long on any particular period in his life. I knew little about Swayze outside a few of his key films. Like women everywhere I fell in love with his character in Dirty Dancing but I had no idea of what he'd done before or after. Each time his body let him down after injury and more injury, Swayze picked himself up and started again. From football, to gymnastics, to ballet and eventually to acting, he was a survivor and a man willing to start over and give everything his best.
Although both Patrick and Lisa are credited with writing this, it's very much Patrick's story. I believe Lisa has a book coming out early in 2012 that tells about life after Patrick - I for one will want to get a copy. I assume the book has been ghost written but it's very well done. I enjoyed this far more than I expected for a book which could so easily have been about a death instead of a fantastic life.
