"From humble beginnings in Little Rock to multiple NBA championships, Derek Fisher's career has seen highs and lows. Through it all, he's demonstrated strong faith in the face of adversity, commitment to team goals over individual recognition, and above all else, devotion to his family. His story shows that what truly matters aren't the achievements or accolades, but the values that carry you through them. It's a message we can all take to heart." -- President Bill Clinton
"Don't be blinded by the four NBA championship rings. Derek Fisher's thirteen-year journey through professional basketball is as much about what shaped him as a man and the choices he's made in his life as it is about game-winning shots and sharing a backcourt with Kobe Bryant." -- Michael Wilbon
"This is the heart of Derek Fisher. I'm glad that he's decided to share more of his life and the lessons that he's learned along the way. I hope you enjoy getting to know him as much as I have. The league, and the world at large, could use more people like Derek Fisher in it." -- From the Foreword by Earvin "Magic" Johnson
