“In this moving and triumphant memoir, Wade shares his inspiring thoughts about fathers and sons, writing poignantly about the gratifying responsibilities of being a single dad to his two sons, Zaire and Zion, while recounting his own growing up years and his memorable rise to the top echelon of professional basketball.”
The book begins just as Wade’s “fatherhood journey” starts in March 2011 with the news that after a bitter custody battle, he has been awarded sole custody of his sons in a virtually unprecedented Chicago court decision.
