Kurzbeschreibung

From the farmlands of India to the fields of major league baseball, this fascinating memoir tells the story of a man who forever changed the lives of two talented young men through a pitching contest in India. The official tie-in book to Disney’s major motion picture, starring Jon Hamm.

A TRUE STORY OF FINDING THE AMERICAN DREAM . . . ABROAD

India is a country with more than one billion people, a fanatical national cricket obsession, and exactly zero talent scouts. There, superstar sports agent J. B. Bernstein knew that he could find the Yao Ming of baseball— someone with a strong arm and enough raw talent to pitch in the major leagues. Almost no one in India is familiar with the game, but Bernstein had heard enough coaches swear that if you gave them a guy who throws a hundred miles an hour, they could teach him how to pitch. So in 2007, Bernstein flew to Mumbai with a radar gun and a plan to find his diamond in the rough. His idea was The Million Dollar Arm, a reality television competition with a huge cash prize and a chance to become the first native of India to sign a contract with an American major-league team.

The result is a humorous and inspiring story about three guys transformed: Bernstein, the consummate bachelor and shrewd businessman, and Dinesh and Rinku, the two young men from small farming villages whom he brought home to California. Million Dollar Arm is a timeless reflection on baseball and the American dream, as well as a tale of victory over incredible odds. But, above all, it’s about the limitless possibilities inside every one of us.

HASH(0x90217fcc) von 5 Sternen Million Dollar Arm: Sometimes to Win, You Have to Change the game 25. April 2014
Von Carol Ann Stone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is fantastic. I read it in only a few hours. I was so amazed as how these two young men from India learned English and also learned how to play baseball. I admire J.B. Bernstein for taking on the responsibility of living with these young men and guiding them as they learn how to play baseball in the US. These young men were so lucky to have an agent such as J.B. Bernstein. This man was willing to put his life on hold to make sure these two young men succeeded. Must read book. I am looking forward to the Disney movie which comes out in June. If you don't have a chance to read the book go see the movie.

HASH(0x90277bd0) von 5 Sternen Great Young Adult book 2. Mai 2014
Von Naomi Buechner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book focuses on the life lessons learned by the sports agent as well as the two young men from India. When you are faced with an issue whether it be job related or personal, collaboration and problem solving skills are key as well as not fearing failure.
Some of the greatest achievements are made from mistakes that do not turn out as you expected.

HASH(0x900ffb7c) von 5 Sternen Great audiobook listen for the whole family 27. Mai 2014
Von Jennifer Donovan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Summer is a great time to find an audiobook that the whole family can enjoy. Whether you are taking a road trip or just enjoy listening to it at home or hearing 20 minute-bits as you are driving from here to there, I think that this one would be a good one for 9ish and up through adult. I enjoyed it a lot.

I don't feel like I need to say what the book is about, since Disney publicized the heck out of it for the movie. I haven't seen the movie yet, but it seems that the book and the movie were sort of done concurrently. For those who have seen the movie or will see it after, Bernstein talks about how the movie came to be made, a bit about the casting process, and some of the differences between the real story and the movie version.

This is not just a story about baseball. I'm not really a baseball fan, but I still enjoyed it. My son isn't either, and he's interested in seeing the movie. It's a story about dreams and motivation and innovation.

CONTENT: Because I'm recommending this for family listening, I wanted to point out that J.B. does talk about the early empty life he led of picking up women and bringing them home. He talks about him getting out of bed when he couldn't sleep and then them leaving. I don't remember any swearing, so it wasn't prolific, though I can't guarantee that there's not a mild swear word or two in the book.

HASH(0x90291e10) von 5 Sternen Read It In 4 Hours 1. Juni 2014
Von avidreader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love true stories, especially (I admit it) feel-good stories. Sports books aren't my favorite genre, so if they aren't yours either, don't let that stop you. This was a quick read, too, easy to finish in a single evening.

Bernstein was an American sports agent who launched a reality show in cricket-crazed India to discover someone with enough potential to become a major league baseball player, because he's become disillusioned by the young talent in the US. He's lucky enough to find three and is able to bring two of them back. Million Dollar Arm tells that story. It's currently being made into a movie.

Minor quibble:The POVs of Dinesh and Rinku were missing; their perspective would have added a lot to the story, especially on events near the end. I realize they didn't author the book, but if they had written even a few paragraphs in the epilogue it would have felt more complete.

If you liked this, see: Invictus on DVD.

HASH(0x9029b3c0) von 5 Sternen Fun Read 10. Mai 2014
Von timothy sho donahue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book. You do not have to be a baseball fan to enjoy it either. The challenge to find a big league pitcher in India is a good story in itself as base ball is unknown in India.It is quite an undertaking. Then there is the cultural aspect of the Indian boys learning about life in America which is educational, interesting and at times funny.
