This book describes the life of remarkable NBA player and human being Jeremy Lin who beat remarkable odds to break through like most inaccurate stereotypes to become an athletic uick point guard in the NBA Despite being named the California high school player of the year Lin did not receive a single D 1 scholarship offer after graduation Because he had the academic chops to go with his high D 1 basketball talent Lin attended and played basketball for Harvard The Ivy League does not offer athletic scholarships a fact verified to me when my daughter was recruited to play basketball at two Ivy League universitiesAfter graduating from Harvard Lin was invited to and excelled at the NBA Draft Combine Unfortunately he was not drafted Nonetheless Lin signed as an undrafted journeyman beginning with the Sacramento Kings Developmental League After being signed to a short contract with the New York Nets Lin finally got a chance to play meaningful game minutes because of the fortuitous injuries of players ahead of him on the depth chart Lin exploded onto the NBA scene by racking of eye popping statistics and game winning heroics such that his success as a previously unheard of player generated unheard of fan support both in the US and throughout the world His phenomenal breakthrough came to be called Linsanity After finishing his one season contract with the Nets Lin signed a large contact with the Houston Rockets The Rockets GM Daryl Morey after the signing admitted that Lin was not drafted by a single NBA team solely because of the inaccurate stereotype in America that Asians are not athletic despite Lin s outstanding performance at the Draft Combine including his clearly observable and identifiable incredible athleticism demonstrated by several Combine player measurements including that Lin had the uickest first move and fastest two steps of every player at the CombineDespite the stereotypical discrimination that relegated Lin to an unheard of bench warmer for several years he was always humble and did not complain about his poor treatment before Linsanity or from the fallout afterward when several sports commentators and NBA players made derogatory statements about his Asian features and the fact that he was only receiving special attention because he was simply a novelty in the NBA an Asian American starterThe idea of Linsanity had perhaps one of the greatest impacts on my ethnic Kazakh daughter who was adopted from KZ in Central Asia and our entire family During Linsanity those close to Jeremy Lin talked about the freuent ethnic and racial taunts chink gook How can you see the scoreboard with your slanted eyes etc hurled at Lin from opposing players and fans while playing for his California high school and AAU teams and even his Ivy League Harvard teams Because our family lives in Central Appalachia rather than open minded liberal areas such as California or the Northeast my daughter suffered from the same stereotypes that dogged Lin and she received also received many of the same taunts as Lin while playing for her middle school high school and Nike travel teams At a particularly troubling point in her life an Asian American Civil Rights group intervened on my daughter s behalf and filed a complaint in its own name on her behalf and conseuently the issue was covered by several media outlets and picked up in the Asian American mediaWhy am I dredging up my daughter s past in a book review Because of its relevance to the authenticity of Jeremy Lin as presented in this book While on tour in China Lin s mother called him from his family s California home to tell him what she had read in the Asian American media about my daughter s troubles and asked him to please call a little Asian girl my daughter going through exactly what he went through during his youth After returning to the US Lin had his manager set up a video call between Lin and my daughter between the Rockets daily practices He chatted with her for nearly 45 minutes discussing their shared experiences and offering advice on how to get through the difficult timesThat singular call did to return my daughter s confidence and encourage her to forge ahead than any advice she hadhas received before or since the call She did indeed forge ahead through many tough times excelling in basketball and tennis and receiving 50 athletic scholarship offers to play tennis and basketball at the next level and eventually accepting a rowing scholarship from a nationally ranked Big Ten university though she had never rowed beforeThis book is authentic and accurately portrays the life of Jeremy Lin up through his Linsanity years I give it my highest recommendationSeveral journalists wNBA general

Weighing in on this phenomenon are tennis's Michael Chang the first notable Asian American athlete Lin's pastor Stephen Chen and Pat Williams senior vice president of the Orlando Magic Other features include eight pages of full color photos and in depth interviews with Lin himself Here is the remarkable inside story of the meteoric rise of Jeremy Li. Linspired is a biography that gives a third person overview of the life struggles and perseverance of NBA player Jeremy Lin The book begins with Lin s parents how they raised Jeremy and his brothers and the influence of religion and academics on Jeremy Later on the book describes Lin s deep faith how he relied on God his successful high school years and how he struggled to get into a good college despite his excellent high school resume As an NBA player he also struggled but was able to play through it I love how this book shows Jeremy s life as proof of hard work rather than a coincidence But the interviews with Jeremy Lin in the book were too restricted in topic This book would be much credible if there was an interview with Jeremy about the major aspects of his life Besides that Yorkey s information is very in depth and cited well I recommend this book for anyone looking for a uality biography about hard work paying off
