This book tells two stories. One is a human interest story and the other is the story of a fundemental shift in the way professional football is played and funded. The professional football part was GREAT. I loved it. The human interest part, the story of Michael Oher, was fairly interesting too, but the author's condescending, begrudgingly appreciative attitudes toward some of the central characters was annoying. It was as if he just could not believe that there are genuinly good people that are rich, conservative, evangelical, white, AND southern. And even though he found one family that was a real example of this hitherto unknown species, he seems to harbor serious doubt about the motives of anyone else who falls into that category.
