About the author
James Lavin earned his economics Ph.D. at Stanford, where he analyzed "high performance work organizations" (like the Patriots). He also holds degrees in political science (Harvard A.B., magna cum laude), economics (M.Sc., London School of Economics), and East Asian studies (M.A., Stanford).
James grew up in Wayland, MA cheering for many disappointing Patriots teams.
After realizing how impressive the Patriots organization is, James decided to share the team's inspiring, informative story with the world.
James lives in Stamford, CT with his wife, Yingmei, who has graciously tolerated his Patriots addiction and game-day antics since their June 1995 marriage.
James' son Daryl was born July 26, 2006.
