Review

Praise for Fatherhood


“This inspirational meditation on fatherhood from former Washington Wizards forward Etan Thomas offers a lot to chew on, both as a primer for thoughtful fathers and children and as a particularly trenchant entry in the ongoing conversation on parenthood and race…Any book that brings the words of Howard Dean and Yao Ming between the same covers is noteworthy.…A tricky line to walk—balancing street cred with idealism, anger with acceptance—but for the most part [Thomas] pulls it off with aplomb. Fathers of any skin color would do well to emulate him.”—The Washington Post


“An insightful book.”—Publishers Weekly

"Etan Thomas not only has skills on the basketball court but more importantly with words and ideas."—Spike Lee


"I would like to salute Etan Thomas. He is a warrior, doing mighty work."—Cornel West

“[Thomas is] a defender of fatherhood.”—New York Daily News


“Really, really moving.” —Soledad O’Brien, CNN


“Etan extends his reach beyond the NBA to helping youth and families throughout America.”—FOX News


“This book is beneficial for fathers, mentors, and sons, no matter how well or how poorly they’re performing in those roles.”—The Washington Times


“Etan Thomas displays his skills off the court pulling together an intimate collection of powerful voices who open up on ending the pain of fatherlessness, the pride and power of being a father, and the promise of a new generation of strong dads”—Essence


“This inspirational book is a call to action, sharing and emphasizing the importance of being present as fathers.”—Daytona Beach News-Journal
