Two-time NBA Champion Lamar Odom will conduct a book tour for his memoir Darkness to Light, which will cover everything from his basketball career to his marriage to Khloe Kardashian and 2015 drug overdose.

While book tour events have not yet been announced, Odom said in an email, “I will be touring across the country to meet fans and do book signings. Stay tuned for dates.”Odom promised that the book, his first, will offer those who’ve followed his basketball career through the present, as well as watched him on the E! 2011-2012 reality TV show Khloe and Lamar, something new. “Darkness to Light will definitely surprise readers because it’s the first time I actually am opening about my entire story,” Odom told me. “Parts of my life that I never had a chance to talk about. My goal is to inspire readers through my trials and tribulations.”
In August 2018, Odom, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers from 2004-2011, told comedian Kevin Hart on Hart’s web series Cold as Balls,“All my doctors that see me say I’m a walking miracle. I had 12 strokes and six heart attacks when I was in a coma. Every day, I’m alive. It’s much better than the alternative.”

BenBella Books publisher Glenn Yeffeth said:
“Lamar is a man who overcame incredible obstacles to become a basketball star, but his demons never left him. Darkness to Light is a story of a man who struggled with both incredible gifts and tremendous burdens. I hope that his journey into the light is an inspiration to his many fans.” The publisher’s official description of the book reads, in part: “In these pages, he recounts the highs and lows of fame and his struggle with his demons as he takes the treacherous path of self-discovery to redemption. From the pain of his unraveled marriage to Khloe Kardashian, to the harmful vices he used to cope, and a low point that made him rethink everything about his life, this is Lamar as you have never before seen him.”
I’m hoping Lamar reveals all of the Kardashian’s secrets, but you know he’s not prepared to deal with that aftermath.
Hopefully just enough to get them pissed.
