5.0 out of 5 stars "AN ENDEARING, HEARTFELT MEMOIR OF TRIUMPH, SUCCESS, AND FATHERHOOD!", September 4, 2012
This review is from: A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball (Hardcover)
Dwyane Wade, a guard for the Miami Heat, an eight-time All-Star, a Champ in Basketball and a legend in the NBA delivers a touching memoir of his life and achievements in his career and his personal life. He begins his story about life off the basketball court, where he seeks his most cherished goal, to be a good father to his two sons, and tells about his challenges as a single dad. In 2011, Dwyane was awarded full custody of Zaire and Zion and from that moment in court until today, he portrays life as a father with all the lessons he learned as his life changed instantly, and the lives of his sons. The author's relationship with his children helped to shape his life, his dreams, and his prayers were answered. The promises he made to himself about being the best father he could be is what encouraged him to reach for the stars in his love for Basketball as he climbed the golden ladder to success. His achievements throughout his career were incredible, along with his motivation and spirit to help win a Gold Medal for the U.S. in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, also named the Finals 'MVP.' A remarkable story that tugs at the heart. Captivating, inspiring, and enjoyable. Highly Recommended to all those who enjoy inspirational and motivating stories, stories for sports lovers, and stories about parenting!

He got custody in 2011, and writes the book in 2012? All the wisdom garnered over a years time? LOL.
