Title: The blind side: Evolution of a game
Author: Michael Lewis
Publisher: W.W. Norton & Co.
Book type: Non-fiction
Setting: Memphis, TN
From the snap of the ball to the snap of the first bone is closer to four seconds than to five.
Of course the only reason I read this book was because I saw the movie and loved it! Football only holds my interest at playoffs and Super Bowl time. And the book was okay but I have to admit that I liked the movie better only because the book was filled with so much football stuff and there were times when my eyes would glaze over. I did, however, learn a whole lot more about the game, so that's a plus.
To whom would I recommend this: Football fans, readers of feel good stories who don't mind some sports stuff thrown in, people who rave about the movie
My rating: 4/5
