After watching the movie on DVD we obtained and read this book. It is truly a journey for Michael and wonderfully researched by the author. Pages and pages about coaches like Parcell, Walsh and the fire history of Lawrence Taylor provides a clear insight into the NFL as well as college coaches, high school amidst the problems of a cross cultural true story.
Even after reading it a first time, I went back and read parts again, and again.
If you are a football fan at any level, this you WILL enjoy. Magnificant true story.

The Blind Side is an incredibly interesting and informative book about a poor African-American's escape from poverty to being adopted by a rich, White, conservative, Southern family and heavily recruited by the top college football programs in the country. This is set against the backdrop of a changing NFL.

I think someone more into football than I am would really enjoy this book. I now understand why some pro football players get into trouble so much. They are taken from the hood because of their athletic ability but their upbringing or lack there of does not prepare them for the life they are about to enter.

I actually enjoyed the movie better than book and that never happens! There is a lot of detail going over football and the players and coaches. It was hard to actually get into the story with everything else being talked about

Better than the movie once you get through all the sports data.

FABULOUS! Not only a deeper view of an amazing athlete, but interwoven with history and changes in the game at both the college and NFL levels. What an excellent read!
