Recently, Bosh sat down with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show about processing his retirement, finding his "why," and finding joy after basketball. Watch HERE.
And read a recent interview with Bosh in the NY Times, where he breaks down his favorite basketball books, his music industry ambitions, and his fantasy dinner party guests.
Inspired by similarly formatted books by Rainer Maria Rilke and Wynton Marsalis and featuring a foreword from Miami Heat President and NBA legend Pat Riley, Letters to a Young Athlete is a memoiristic work that finds Bosh reflecting on life, adversity, commitment and success in a series of letters addressed to his younger self. Letters To A Young Athlete is a personal narrative rich with motivation and guidance - as well as remarkable anecdotes from a legendary playing career - that's perfect for anyone aspiring to greatness in whatever they're passionate about.
Following a Hall of Fame playing career, Bosh has thrown himself into his writing. Alongside Letters to a Young Athlete , he also produces a weekly newsletter The Last Chip and recently authored an op-ed for The Player's Tribune on college athletics. Residing in Austin with his wife and children, he now occupies his time with his rich family life, philanthropic efforts, and musical passions. He's produced tracks for Gucci Mane and heads his own Austin based label, Daddy Jack, which looks to be extremely active in the latter stages of 2021
Chris Bosh's book tour for Letters to a Young Athlete has seen him partner with book stores in Miami, Toronto, Austin, and more with conversations between Bosh and notable figures such as Dwyane Wade, Ryan Holiday, Ray Allen, Genevieve Padalecki, Tia Mowry, and Karla Grey.
