5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 29 2007
Format: Hardcover
Imagine that you are a large (over 300 pounds) African-American teenager who lives in the worst part of Memphis. You never knew your father (and he will soon be murdered). Your mother is addicted to drugs and doesn't do much to provide for you. You have no bed. You don't know where your next meal is coming from. You haven't gone to enough school to know how to do much of anything.

What do you want out of life? You want to be Michael Jordan . . . just like millions of other teenagers. You've spent endless hours on the playgrounds practicing as a shooting guard.

What will you become in a handful of years? One of the most heavily recruited college football players in the nation and a top professional prospect who people are watching as you learn how to be a left tackle.

The story of how Michael Oher made this transition is one of the most amazing, moving, and fascinating real-life stories it has ever been my pleasure to read. Whether or not you like football, you'll find this book to be impossible to put down.

Michael Lewis does a remarkable job in telling the story. Mr. Lewis was fortunate to have a long-term friendship with Sean Tuohy, one of the many people who helped Michael Oher fulfill his potential. As a result, Mr. Lewis enjoyed amazing access to the people involved in Michael's life . . . and eventually got some help from Michael as well.

The Blind Side is four stories in one:

1. Michael's life before he met the Tuohy family.

2. Michael's progress from being ignorant to becoming a highly recruited college football prospect.

3. Michael's adjustment to college.

4. The changes in professional football that created an irresistible demand for someone with Michael's physical capabilities.

I almost always prefer books to movies, as most readers do. In this case, save some time, watch the movie.

Format: Paperback
Read this book if you want to learn about LT (aka Lawrence Taylor, the greatest Linebacker ever) or about 'West-Coast Offence' or how the epic battle between Bill Walsh and Bill Parcells started (for those that don't know, pretty much *every* coach today can trace their coaching careers back to these two men, or Marty Schottenheimer). Another topic covered is the lopsided economics that is NCAA and how a virtual league run under the guise of education in order to basically get players that play for free.

Overall this book was great, quick read. I had trouble putting it down and more than once traded a few more hours of sleep (badly needed with my newborn 2 month-old daughter) to keep reading. Much like Moneyball and Hoop Dreams, this was great book about sports. If you're a sports fan or just a fan of good documentary-like books, this is a must read.
