Summary
Beloved NBA player, poet, youth advocate, and devoted dad Etan Thomas speaks from his heart on what matters most in his life: being there for his children. As a participant in President Obama's Fatherhood Initiative, Etan has reached out to young men (often young fathers) in the juvenile detention system and in local communities. He knows firsthand the difference having a father in your life can make. Now he brings together a chorus of voices--athletes and coaches, performers, politicians and leaders of faith--to weigh in on the importance of being a father today. Isaiah Washington, Howard Dean, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Taye Diggs, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Tony Hawk, Al Sharpton, Chuck D, and many more share what they've learned from being a father, having a father, or in some cases not having a father around. By taking an active role as fathers, men not only find their own lives more joyful and fulfilling--they pass on to the next generation a legacy of love, wisdom, responsibility, and strength.--From publisher description
