Loved the ESPN film and have watched it over and over. Surprisingly, the book is method better! A very detailed and close look at the Fab Five (and their teammates) and Coach Fisher personally. A must-have for any Michigan fan.
I love the book, which reminds me of when I was small watching the Fab Five play. When read right before and after watching the documentary, it makes it even better. The thing that irks me is the tone of the old, white sportswriter (I know, Albom is more than a sportswriter now) portraying inner-city life and in-game trash talk. It makes me cringe and there isn't a page that goes by without that feeling. It created this book very hard to finish, but it's worth powering through.
Bonus for someone else. There was a sticker on back that even with carefully taken off tore off part of the cover. It did not come with the cover as you see in this picture. It was just a blue board book with no cover. It was Fab Five inside and she did add to her collection. I wished it had the cover.
As a man who went to college during the fab five era, it was a cool read, and walk down memory lane of a time when I couldn't trade in my basketball short shorts, for a pair of the fab five long baggy shorts quick enough, these 5 children really did touch and change the worlds of so a lot of people!!! This is a well written book that really engulfs the reader, highly recommended! Especially if you are a Michigan fan!
Mitch Albom does it again! A unbelievable insight into the group that changed basketball to what it is today (for amazing or poor according to some). I have been waiting to read this for nearly 20 years since it came out, and finally got the possibility and bought it. No disappointment, and reading this much later, it was a unbelievable stroll down memory lane. Mitch paints a picture that allows you to visualize all the details. You always watched them and either loved or hated their brash attitudes, but you cannot deny their impact. Now know what went on behind the scenes. Thanks Mitch, hold up the amazing work.
Need to fix I have been downloading your apps since their initial release and have always enjoyed their easy interface and overall functionality, this application being no exception. Two things that frustrate me about this app, however, is that it sporadically crashes (which is probably more so an indictment on my phone) and, mainly, the notification system- I turned on the setting that would modernize me about each quarter of every game, but it will notify me every 2 mins on my phone with the exact same result.
