Back cover copy

Dwyane Wade, the eight-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion for the Miami Heat and winner of a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, has miraculously defied the odds throughout his incredible career. But off the court Dwyane has sought his most cherished goal: being a good dad to his sons, Zaire and Zion. Dwyane begins his story in March 2011 with the news that after a long, bitter custody battle, he has been awarded sole custody of his sons. A Father First chronicles the lessons Dwyane has learned as a single dad as well as past events that shaped his dreams, prayers, and promises.

Though divorced, Dwyane's parents showed him that the unconditional love between parents and children is a powerful guiding force. A revealing, personal story of one of America's top athletes, A Father First is also a call to action--from a man who had to fight to be in his children's lives--that will show mothers and fathers how to step up and be parents themselves.
