I have to admit that I am a not a lifelong Michigan fan. I grew up in upstate New York (like Mike Hart!), and that's where I attended my undergraduate school. I watched a lot of Michigan, Notre Dame, and Penn State football, and Syracuse was "my" basketball team (due to proximity).
I came to Michigan for my PhD, and have been here for a little over 3 years (I outlasted RR!). In this time, I have quickly become a die-hard UM fan, visiting MGoBlog a dozen times a day and attending every athletic event possible (while still progressing on my degree, of course).
My question is: for someone who is not that familiar with the intricacies of the Michigan football legacy, what books are "the best"? I've been browsing Amazon and have seen a ton of books, but I'm not sure what lifelong Michigan fans think is the truest (as opposed to a lot of the reviews written by not-as-knowledgeable folk). I've heard good things about Jon Falk's book -- would it be a good starting point?
