On February 16, 2012, Forbes magazine reported that New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin had a bigger footprint on the Internet than Barack Obama. So how did this unassuming, modest 23-year-old Harvard grad rise from obscurity to sports iconicism? How did he put a struggling NBA team on his back and give them the kind of hope they had not felt in years? How did he become a hero to millions worldwide in a matter of days? In the first-ever ebook examination of Jeremy Lin's brief, magical career, novelist and sportswriter Alan Goldsher (ESPN Magazine, NBA.com) invites you to join the Linsanity and meet Jeremy Lin, the first Chinese-American to play in the NBA, the inspiring young man who made the phrase "Linning Time" part of the sports lexicon, and the man bringing pure joy back to professional basketball.
Excellent overview of Lin
This book was written in 3 days but it reads like any other good book that may have taken three years to research. I highly recommend this book, not only for basketball fans, but also for anyone who just enjoys a good underdog story. Even if Lin doesn't rise to the occassion and win a championship, "Linsanity" will remind the reader that it's his story that is so engaging and lasting. Well done!
