In Win Like Lin, award-winning sports writer Sean Deveney, breaks down Jeremy Lin’s winning game plan to help you create your own success story.

Before he joined the New York Knicks, Harvard-graduate Jeremy Lin had been cut from two teams and passed over by virtually every other NBA franchise. And for his first month in New York, he sat on the bench. Then Jeremy Lin got his chance on the court—and pro basketball hasn’t been the same.

Combining the remarkable story of Lin’s improbable rise with interviews of today’s top NBA players, coaches, and team executives—including Amare Stoudemire, Dwayne Wade, Mike D’Antoni, and Steve Kerr—Deveney outlines the six principles Lin applied to beat the odds and rise to the top:

  • Don’t be afraid to take the road less traveled
  • Believe in your own ability
  • Find the system that works best for you
  • Focus on making the most of skills you already possess
  • Rebound quickly from setbacks and learn from failure
  • Be humble in victory

Athletic prowess is only part of the Jeremy Lin saga. What got him off the bench and into the game was his will, ability to triumph over adversity, and the desire to make the most of every opportunity. No matter your goals or the challenges you face, with this book and your own drive and determination, you, too, can Win Like Lin!

Sean Deveney is the NBA writer for The Sporting News and the author of The Original Curse.
