The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis

“Lewis has such a gift for storytelling… he writes as lucidly for sports fans as for those who read him for other reasons.”–Janet Maslin, New York Times

When we first meet Michael Oher is one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or how to read or write. He takes up football, and school, after a rich, white, Evangelical family plucks him from the streets. Then two great forces alter Oher: the family’s love and the evolution of professional football itself into a game in which the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Our protagonist becomes the priceless package of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback’s greatest vulnerability: his blind side.

The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis is one of Malcolm Gladwell favorite books.
