Denver Nuggets point guard Nate Robinson just added another title to his ever-expanding resume: Author.
Heart Over Height tells the story of Robinson’s life, including a look at the obstacles he had to overcome to make it to the NBA. The book was penned by Robinson with assistance from Jon Finkel, a writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, GQ, and Men’s Health.
Here’s a look at the book trailer that Robinson recently posted on YouTube:
From the book’s official description:
Throughout the pages of Heart Over Height Robinson takes fans behind-the-scenes of his childhood, his career and his most famous moments. From outperforming LeBron James on one of the NBA’s biggest stages, to mapping out his iconic slam dunk contest win over Dwight Howard, to being named Washington’s high school football and basketball Player of the Year, Heart Over Height brings to life a story that personifies perseverance.
Beginning with his improbable selection as the New York Knicks’ first-round draft pick after only playing basketball full time for two years, and continuing on to his unprecedented three NBA Slam Dunk Championships, Robinson has defied the odds every step of his career; a career that many analysts and pundits felt would never happen because in a sport filled with seven-footers, Robinson stands only 5’9″ tall.
Heart Over Height was released on June 2 and is currently available for the Kindle and other e-Readers.
