Former NBA superstar and Austin resident, Chris Bosh, announced on Tuesday that he is releasing his first book, "Letters to a Young Athlete" in June.
In his debut book to be released June 1, Bosh takes his experiences with basketball, illness and life, in general, to reflect on the lessons and experiences that defined his career in the NBA and his overall personal growth."The health issues I faced, that changes you—shifts your perspective on what truly matters and teaches you to count your blessings when you can," Bosh said in an interview with Austin Monthly. "With the promise of a better year ahead of us, we just have to put in the work and find those things that inspire us."
BIG NEWS 🚨🚨🚨 I’m so excited & proud to share my new book! Letters to a Young Athlete is filled with the things that… https://t.co/lyotSkwSw8— Chris Bosh (@Chris Bosh)1612303668.0
Bosh moved to Austin in 2018 with his wife and five children after a blood clot in his lungs ended his NBA career two years prior with Miami Heat. Since moving to Austin, he has started his own record label, Daddy Jack Records and released four songs under the label in 2020.
"Letters to a Young Athlete" isn't Bosh's first foray into writing. In June 2020, he started a newsletter, "The Last Chip" where he spilled stories from the Big Three's (consisting of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Bosh himself playing with Miami Heat) last championship season. The newsletter was only supposed to run for 10 weeks, however, Bosh has branched into new angles with "The Last Chip" and continued to release newsletters regularly.
According to a description on the "Letters to a Young Athlete" pre-order site, Bosh didn't write this just for sports fans.
"This is not a book for athletes per se," the description reads. "It is for anyone with a hunger to do the inner work to be better, to identify the mental constructs that get in the way of an honest pursuit of excellence, whatever the field."
Bosh's memoir is available for pre-sale on his site. And after pre-ordering, you can show proof to receive an exclusive video from Bosh himself.

Vaccine week 13: Travis County to receive more than 75K doses of vaccine thanks to Johnson & Johnson bump
Eighty-seven providers in Travis County will receive a total of 75,540 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the week of March 8 as part of the 13th weekly allocation, a nearly 62% increase compared to last week's. The significant increase is largely due to inclusion of the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which received an emergency use authorization from the FDA last weekend.
The bulk will go to hub providers Austin Public Health and UT Health Austin, the clinical wing of Dell Medical School, as well as to Seton Medical Center, which will receive the largest share of this week's shipment. These three providers will either receive doses from Moderna or Pfizer.
