  • "Another great book by Michael Lewis"

    Overall

    I'm not a big reader, just an engineer with a long commute. I purchased the book because I enjoyed reading "Moneyball" when my daughters played softball. The knowledge from the book helped in the coaching of my daughters, but also in the way I worked with others. I hoped "Blind Side" would do the same, while telling a great story about a loving family and a child, who needed a break.
    The "Blind Side" starts with an understanding of how the game of football was changed by players like Lawrence Taylor. Whether you like football or not, this is a great story of how one person affects a system or an industry. LT forced coaches to give greater consideration to their individual offensive linemen, who previously had just been known for being big and heavy. Like "Moneyball", we learn how this simply inequity in the game was discovered and exploited. The change in the game set the stage for a young Memphis kid with a bleak future to become a national prospect.
    The story of Michael Oher could be it's own book (and it is, now that he wrote an autobiography). Inside that wonderful story are great supporting characters, the Tuohy family. The book is far more honest about the intentions of everybody than the movie, and for that; it's worth the time to listen. You'll see how Leigh Anne is the key to Michael Oher in many ways, but the one story as remarkable as Michael is that of Sean Tuohy. That's a story hinted at, but never told in the book. What's for certain is Sean Tuohy truly believes in paying it forward. His willingness to help others is obvious, and I suspect part of the reason of his success. Certainly, it was a major part of Michael Oher's success.
    As they say, the book is better than the movie, but this one is good even after seeing the movie. Perhaps its even better to see the movie first. If you liked the movie, and you read through this review; buy the book.

    Performance
    Story

    Who gave this five stars? Friends and family? I gave it one star as I did not think that the review would register unless I clicked on a star. It was so difficult to listen to that I could only tolerate it if listening to it at 2X speed. I love southern voices and listened to The Help three times. This was as if it was read by a second grade reader, word by word. It should be called Read Too Slow. And as far as I could possibly put up with it, and I really tried to give it a chance, the writing was very sophomoric. I want to thank those who gave The Help five stars, as I wouldn't have selected it otherwise. I selected this one by its five stars and I want to save others their time and money. This is the first bad review I have ever written. Unless someone was a slow learner, they could not possible appreciate how Step Too Slow is read, or the way it was written. It seemed to be random thoughts. I'm thinking about requesting my credit back from Audible. I do 76 books a year and this is the first stinker I've had from Audible.

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    Tony Dungy reads his own words is a very easy to listen style. I found myself very engaged with his style and the life stories he shares in a very compelling package of lessons learned. This is the kind of material I found to be helpful, practical and relevant.
    Hearing stories from a head coach inside the NFL makes his example stories interesting and so enjoyable you almost feel as if Tony is your new best friend. I also appreciate how Tony does not down play his personal faith and followings of Jesus and the bible. Yet, it has a ring of universal truth so that even if you are not aligned to the Christian walk, I believe this book talks to most people deep down where we all want to relate to one another.
    If you wish you had a pocket personal or professional coach, I recommend this book. If you aspire to be a better person, Father, Mother, Friend, Co-worker or leader I recommend this book.
    I was not familiar with Tony Dungy until I listened to this book. Now I’m a fan. Tony Dungy has restored my faith in role models that can make a different in people’s life.

    Stefan Fatsis infiltrates a strikingly different subculture: pro football. After more than a year spent working out with a strength coach and polishing his craft with a gurulike kicking coach, Fatsis molded his fortyish body into one that could stand up - barely - to the rigors of NFL training. And over three months in 2006, he became a Denver Bronco.

    The most popular college football team in the early 20th century belonged to an institution called the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. Its story begins with Lt. Col. Richard Henry Pratt, a fierce abolitionist who believed that Native Americans deserved a place in American society. In 1879, Pratt made a treacherous journey to the Dakota Territory to recruit Carlisle's first students. Years later, three students approached Pratt with the notion of forming a football team.

    In between Babe Ruth and Michael Jordan there was Joe Namath, one of the very few sports heroes who transcended their game. The son of a Hungarian immigrant, Namath left the steel country of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, for the Deep South, where he played quarterback for Bear Bryant at the University of Alabama. Almost four years later, he signed a $427,000 contract with the New York Jets that changed football forever, transforming a crude, violent game into show business.

The "outlaw" of college football, Switzer was both praised and reviled by the media, but everyone agrees that he was undeniably one of the all-time best recruiters, strategists, and motivators ever to deliver a halftime speech.

    On December 28, 1958, the New York Giants and Baltimore Colts met under the lights of Yankee Stadium for that season's NFL Championship game. Football was still greatly over-shadowed by the country's favored pastime - baseball - but the 1958 championship proved to be the turning point for pro football.

    On the field and roaming the sidelines were 17 future Hall of Famers, including Colts stars Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry, and Gino Marchetti, and Giants greats Frank Gifford, Sam Huff, and assistant coaches Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry.

    The Best Game Ever is a brilliant portrait of how a single game changed the history of American sports.

The 2013 Discover BCS National Championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama had a viewership of 26.4 million people, second only to the Super Bowl. Billions of dollars from television deals now flow into the game; the average budget for a top-ten team is $80 million; top coaches make more than $3 million a year; the highest paid, more than $5 million.
