"If you saw the movie "The Blind Side," you saw a family that is quite honestly the most amazing family I think I have ever, ever seen... Remarkable, remarkable people."--Glenn Beck "In "The Blind Side" I did my best to describe the full force of Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, but there is only so much one writer can do. "In A Heartbeat" picks up where I left off, and gives the reader a much fuller portrait of these extraordinary people."--Michael Lewis "All I can say is, if there were more Leigh Anne Tuohys, the world would be a better-run, more harmonious, and more productive place . . . She's such an amazing person."--Sandra Bullock "Sean is an all-around good guy, and the inspirational story of what he and his family did for this kid--the time, the effort, and the love he put out--is pretty incredible."--Tim McGraw "Their book aims to bring the Michael Oher miracle off the big screen and back down to Earth--and make sure that its message won't get lost here."--"The Baltimore Sun""""For anyone wondering what more there might be to say about the inspiring story of "The Blind Side," the answer is: plenty... They write with humor about their quirks and the joy that Michael brought to their family."--"Publishers Weekly"
