Derrick Rose achieved an improbable childhood dream: being selected first overall in the NBA draft by his hometown Chicago Bulls.

The point guard was a phenom, winning the Rookie of the Year award and electrifying fans around the world.

In 2011, he became the youngest MVP in league history.

Rarely had a bond between a player and fans been so strong, as the city wrapped its arms around the homegrown hero.

Six years and four knee surgeries later, his career was seemingly on the brink of collapse.

But Rose never believed his struggles on and off the court were anything other than temporary setbacks.

I'll Show You is an honest, intimate conversation with one of the world's most popular athletes, a star whose on-court brilliance is matched only by his aversion to the spotlight.

Rose opens himself up in a document that is as unflinching—and at times as uncomfortable—as a personal diary.

Detailing his childhood spent in one of his city's most dangerous neighborhoods; his relationships with both opponents and teammates; the pain and controversies surrounding his career-altering injuries; his complicated relationship to fame and fortune; and his rise, fall, and reemergence as the player LeBron James says is "still a superhero," I'll Show You is one of the most candid and surprising autobiographies of a modern-day superstar ever written.
