He is transformed from a workaholic womanizer by the experience of going to India to stage a reality show in hopes to find raw talent for pitching. Around the time of the events in the Million Dollar Arm movie, J. Bernstein, is a great feel good story. 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. Bobin co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller, who is also executive producer with John G.
Overall, this is a great story, that was very poorly executed. Bernstein believes he just needs one more deal in order to make it. And, happy me, like any kid, I got to show off my war injury. Saying that explains in my mind why the critics for the most part have been lukewarm about the movie.

What I liked most about this book is that the author and real-life agent responsible for creating the contest was very realistic about the challenges that the players would face. But for South Asians and Indo-American it will be a perfect movie. A short time later he is considering cricket players and how fast they can throw. 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. A light read but a lovely story.
