Hall of Famer and international playboy Dennis Rodman can now add “children’s author” to his already vast resume.
The 51-year-old who was once heralded as the most tenacious defender in basketball has written a book called Dennis the Wild Bull.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Rodman teamed up with esteemed author and screenwriter Dustin Warburton for the book, which is set for release in September.
Dennis the Wild Bull is Dennis’ fifth book, but his first book geared towards children. His first four books were biographical.
Dennis, who played for 14 seasons in the NBA says he wrote the book in hopes of spreading a positive message to his own children and children all over the world.
Dennis recently met his own father, who had been estranged for hoops star’s entire life, when he played an exhibition basketball game in the Philippines earlier this year.
The book serves as a sign of hope for the five-time NBA Champion who has made headlines numerous times over the past few years, for his quasi-suicidal Hall of Fame acceptance speech and his inability to keep up with child support payments.
Dennis says he will do a tour to promote Dennis the Wild Bull with stops in London, Germany Australia, Canada and the US, later this year.
