He sings in the shower. His grandmother laugs with his jokes and he can perfectly fry an egg.

Welcome to normal life, the All-Star power forward from Los Angeles Lakers, Pau Gasol.

In this one-of-a-kind, bilingual, behind the scenes book, award-winning photographer Lori Shepler chronicles Pau’s life on and off the court. Through 16 chapters and more than 200 color photographs, Pau gives readers plenty of reasons to see what makes him such a beloved sports figure around the world. Join Pau on his journey and discover what makes him so well-liked off the court. Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant write in the book’s forewords that Pau is not only a gifted athlete; he is a treasured friend, a good brother, and a respected Renaissance man. And in his own words-both English and Spanish-Pau reveals details about his private life, including moments with his family, his values, his philanthropy, his love of music, and much more.

He is Pau Gasol. Welcome to his life.
