At the age of twenty-one, Eric Anderson had everything—athleticism, exuberance, good looks, loving friends and family members. One evening, a simple lapse in judgement and a tragic accident turned his world completed upside down. His body, once a vessel for limitless opportunity, was reduced to an inescapable prison as he tried to adjust to his new life with a major disability.

Deeply depressed and unprepared mentally to grasp the physical and emotional trials he faces, Eric turned to drugs, alcohol, and excessive partying. Over the next decade, Eric’s life spiraled out of control as he attempted to assimilate back into a world perpetually haunted by memories of a perfect life he can’t let go of.

Overcome with grief, sorrow, and hopelessness, Eric decided that suicide was his only remaining option. When he clicked on a random internet link, however, he found the light at the end of the tunnel that seemed elusive for so many years.

“Don’t Stop Dancing: My Story of Tragedy, Loss, Addiction, and Darkness, and the Discovery That Healed My Soul” will take readers of every age and demographic on a heart-wrenching, emotional rollercoaster of a ride as Eric’s mind, body, and spirit are completed transformed, thanks to the music he immerses himself in.

Whether you’re looking for a truly compelling story or inspiration to live every moment to its fullest, Eric’s comeback will show readers why we should never take anything for granted, and will remind us of the unlimited potential that exists within us all.
