TommyWinnipeg, MBAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5LinspiringMay 10, 2016TommyWinnipeg, MBAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Linspired is worth the read if youre a sports fan or a fan of the underdog. You get a good look at all of the hard work Jeremy put in to be able to make it to the NBA. In the same breath, you see that Jeremys priorities are not being a great basketball player, but his relationship with God.
Not only was Jeremys story very interesting, the interview with former tennis star Michael Chang was full of great advice for Jeremy, and all Christians for that matter.
Id recommend Linspired in a heartbeat. It wont take you long to read, but itll leave you motivated to go and work harder where God has called you.
IreneUnited States5 Stars Out Of 5An interesting storyJune 6, 2012IreneUnited StatesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is about Jeremy Lin and is written by Mike Yorkey. Mr. Yorkey has written the well liked Playing with Purpose books and this new book about the famed basketball star will also not disappoint.
This book follows the beginning of Jeremy Lin's basketball career. It talks about how he got into the NBA and how much his family history and his family influenced him. The author does well at writing about sports. He holds your attention without boring you. Even if you don't like basketball you will still enjoy reading about this young man's journey. I found this an interesting story and thought it was an easy read.
I gave the book 5/5 stars because the book is not just for fans of Jeremy Lin and basketball but also those who enjoy a good human-interest story. I would recommend this book for any sports fan and especially those who enjoy basketball.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
Q: Is this book appropriate for 10-12 year olds?
This is the adult version of the book.
I might suggest the kids version of the book (CBD Stock No: WW073523), which would work better for this age group.
