About The Book

Behind many of today's top athletes are exemplary parents who inspired and motivated them to succeed. This DVD and book collection captures behind-the-scenes stories, moments, and memories about remarkable male and female sports stars of today-and their equally remarkable dads.

With the help of their fathers, the athletes featured in Heroes, Legends . . . Dads have made those wildest dreams reality. Containing video and audio clips interspersed with fascinating first-hand stories, each of these eight profiles captures the close-knit bond between father and child.

* Ned and Dale Jarrett

* Bobby and Barry Bonds

* Doug and Jennie Finch

* Joel and Oscar De La Hoya

* Archie and Peyton Manning

* Bill and Luke Walton

* Ken and Ken Griffey Jr.
