From a starting point as a relatively short high-school athlete fighting to landing a college scholarship to being named a two-time MVP of the NBA—it’s been an incredible journey for professional basketball player Steve Nash. And now readers have an inside ticket for the entire trip! In this new authorized biography, fans young and old will learn about everything from Nash’s early years in Victoria, British Columbia, where he forged his now-legendary work ethic and hoop skills, to his current superstar turn with the Phoenix Suns. The boy who in junior high school confidently told his mother he would one day play in the NBA has done that and so much more. This is the story of how he has beaten overwhelming odds to become not only a top-flight athlete—but also a widely admired human being.
