This was a fantastic book. As the title suggests, I was stunned to hear the details of Michael Oher's background. I was expecting more of a x's and o's type of story about the evolution of the left tackle position. The information in that area was used instead to reinforce Oher's value to the NFL and those around him.
This was a very well written book that is both socially and historically informative. The limited information on the evolution of the "Blind Side" is not abundant, but it is thouroughly informative. The emphasis on Michael Oher's background, and his relationship with the Tuohy family is eye-opening.
Don't wait for the movie, listen to triumph of the human spirit unabridged.
P.S. The dictation by Hoye was great, I loved his cajun accent.
