In Fatherhood, beloved NBA player, poet, children's advocate, and devoted dad Etan Thomas speaks from his heart on what matters most in his life: being there for his children. As a leading 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 every day can make.

Now he brings together a chorus of voices to weigh in on the importance of being a father in our nation today and to share what they've learned from being a father, having a father, or in some cases not having a father around.
