This book is great. Just like woman want equal rights in the world, fathers want that same right when it involves raising thier children or being able to spend time with thier children. This book shows that fathers are willing and ready to raise thier children.

Excellent book!!! D.Wade is a good example of what a father should be. Sometimes people feel men in the industry are so busy with their careers they simply supply the children with material things instead of love. D. Wade shows how he makes fatherhood a priority and loving his children is what he does best. keep of the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!! D Wade's #1 Fan!

This book is an amazing book. The fight that it took for DWade to get his kids and want the best for him is incredible. people often don't realize that men have a strong love for their kids just as women do. Most men today are either leaving the homes and abandoning children or don't show them love that these kids today need. With Wade, he wants to make sure that his kids are loved in every way possible and don't feel abandoned by him. He was able to manage school with his first son, Zaire and made it to the NBA and has been successful ever since. This book is a prime example of how being in a world where all there is, is just media, fans and fame and money, still be able to make time for your kids and not just make time, but make quality time and really be apart of their lives and being a good role model to them and just being a good father overall. People in this world will fight for whatever they believe is right. In this book, Wade shows how he fought and continued to fight and not give up until you feel what you have fought for has worked in your favor. If you keep the faith and believe, then good things will happen. In this amazing book, Wade shows how he kept his faith and received blessings like winning the NBA finals by beating the Thunder 4-1 series. This book is very impactful and dissects into the fact that D-Wade is a basketball player second, and a father first.

This is a heartfelt biography as well as a testament of strength and perserverance during a time of struggle. Dwyane has overcome the negative aspects of "baby mama drama" and can now be the father to his boys and be happy. His family support was clearly demonstrated in this book. Many thanks for a great read.

I thought this book was good and had a good message because as a young kid his family was very poor. Now he helps kids that were like him. I found it interesting to learn of all the adversity he had to overcome in order to reach incredible achievements

I love how he went from the bad streets of Chicago to the bright lights of Miami. He also did a wonderful job describing the custody battle. Very great book. He is a good role model.

To read about DW is insightful and a great opportunity to read the words of a champion. DW led the Heat to the NBA championship, as he carried the team on his shoulders, star quality. From where I sit he is a a great human being!

Well written autobiography about a star who came up the hard way. Shows the warmth and caring of a popular player who is a "real" person as well as a hero. I'm an older woman who enjoys watching the Heat play and enjoyed the book!
