9780393330472: The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game
Review:

"It's not a jock book. It's not a sociology book. It's a storybook about modern society, ancient virtues, and the power of love, money and talent to do a little good." -- Jay Hancock "?The Blind Side ?is as insightful and moving a meditation on class inequality in America as I have ever read-although to put it that way, I realize, makes it sound deadly dull. It isn't." -- Malcolm Gladwell "Lewis's overview of the evolution of NFL strategy... is not only sound but shrewder than that of many so-called football insiders who can't see the forest for the trees." -- Allen Barra "[Lewis] is advancing a new genre of journalism." -- George F. Will "The Blind Side ?works on three levels. First as a shrewd analysis of the NFL; second, as an expose of the insanity of big-time college football recruiting; and, third, as a moving portrait of the positive effect that love, family, and education can have in reversing the path of a life that was destined to be lived unhappily and, most likely, end badly." -- Wes Lukowsky "Combining a tour de force of sports analysis with a piquant ethnography of the South's pigskin mania, Lewis probes the fascinating question of whether football is a matter of brute force or subtle intellect."

Review:

"The Blind Side is a wonderful tale." John Gapper, Financial Times "Lewis has made a habit of writing about sport recently, but sport is really only a subtext for a much more meaningful examination of class and race. I wept at the end, something I have not done at the end of a work of non-fiction for a very long time." Malcolm Gladwell, The Observer, Books of the Year 2006 "The strongest strand of The Blind Side is about sporting strategy. When brain defeats brawn in one of Michael Lewis's books, you can almost hear the prose style lift off." Ed Smith, The Times "[The Blind Side] provides deep insights about sport and America." The Spectator"

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.
