He sings in the shower, pumps his own gas. He laughs at all his grandmother’s jokes, and fries a perfectly cooked egg.

Welcome to the normal life of Los Angeles Lakers All-Star center Pau Gasol.

In this one-of-a-kind, behind-the-scenes book, award-winning photographer Lori Shepler chronicles Pau’s life on and off the court, beginning with the 2010 season. Through sixteen chapters and more than 200 vivid color photographs, Pau gives readers plenty of reasons to understand why he is such a beloved sports figure around the world.

Phil Jackson, one of the greatest basketball coaches in NBA history, and Kobe Bryant, one of the greatest basketball players of all time, 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.

All of Pau's proceeds from the sales of his book go to the Gasol Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Pau and Marc Gasol to help children around the world lead healthier and more active lives. 


Vida es el título del nuevo libro de Pau Gasol, una guía de su mundo, más allá del básquet.

Los fans, la familia, la relación con la fama, sus verdaderas amistades, su ciudad natal Barcelona, la vida en América y Kobe son solo algunos de los muchos aspectos a los que nos introduce Pau, con este detallado repaso fotográfico de su mundo.

Con "Vida", conocemos imágenes exclusivas, captadas por Lori Shepler, de sus entrenamientos y de sus pruebas médicas, pero también del Pau de detrás de las cámaras o, mejor dicho, del Pau fuera de la pista: del amigo, del solidario, del chico que pasaba horas en el laboratorio de ciencias y que soñaba con ser de los mejores jugadores de básquet del mundo.

Los prefacios están escritos por sus amigos Kobe Bryant y Juan Carlos Navarro. Phil Jackson escribe el prólogo.

Los ingresos obtenidos con "Vida" irán íntegramente dirigidos a la Fundación Gasol.
