Linsanity by Evan Jackson Leong, chronicles the surprising rise of basketball player Jeremy Lin, who in February 2012, while playing for the New York Knicks, put together a record-breaking string of games, giving the world one of the most remarkable underdog stories ever to unfold in the history of sports.

Life on Four Strings by Tadashi Nakamura is a compelling portrait of Jake Shimabukuro, an inspiring and inventive musician whose virtuoso skills on the ukulele transformed all previous notions of the instrument's potential.
