Main description
New York, Sydney, Tokyo - wheelchair

Paul van Dyk is one of the most famous DJs in the world. He has fans on every continent. Almost every weekend he plays in the hottest clubs - until he falls into a hole one meter deep on a stage. It quickly became clear to the doctors: Paul van Dyk will remain a nursing case in a wheelchair. Without any memory of his previous life. Without music. But it turns out differently.

As a musician and producer, Paul van Dyk occupies top positions in the charts around the world, has been nominated for a Grammy and has twice been named World's No.1 DJ. He leads a life that most people only know from lifestyle magazines. It's normal for him. He is full of optimism and joie de vivre. Until February 27, 2016. One step, one fall several meters down. Diagnosis: two fractures in the spine, bruises and a traumatic brain injury. And the beginning of another life that forces him to learn everything all over again.
In his book Paul van Dyk processes the moment of falling and the time after waking up from the coma. But above all, it shows how important optimism, motivation and especially love are to find your way back to life in an almost hopeless situation.


Paul van Dyk, born in 1971 in Eisenhüttenstadt as Matthias Paul, is a DJ, music producer and radio presenter. He has received many awards, has been awarded the Order of Merit of the State of Berlin and is one of the most successful DJs in the world.
