Jeremy Lin: Taiwanese Publishers Not Authorized To Write His Biography
Formosa Transnational Attorneys at Law, a respected law firm in Taiwan, has released a statement saying that Jeremy Lin has not authorized any books about his life story, according to the Taipei Times.
The statement, on Lin's behalf, comes in response to a recent flurry of books about Lin's rise from obscurity to the starting point guard role on the New York Knicks. The law firm says Lin is afraid that Taiwanese publishers may try to promote their publications as authorized biographies with his stamp of approval.
One such publisher, the Taipei-based China Times Publishing, released a book yesterday about Lin’s rise to stardom entitled "Lincredible 17" containing over 100 photos and divided into 12 sections covering Lin’s professional and personal life. The publishing firm said Lin’s statement did not change its plan to publish the book, adding that all photos were acquired legally.
