The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game

The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game - Michael Lewis What an amazing book! The true story of Michael Oher, who is “adopted” by the Tuohy’s, an affluent white family in Memphis. I am not a football fan but the description of the game and the NFL process in this book was interesting non-the-less. The story of Michael’s life is amazing but this book is so much more. It a social commentary on the educational system, on learning disabilities, on sports stereotyping, the invisible poor adjacent to affluent communities and the strength of one woman to combat all of this for something she believes in. Michael Oher’s story has been covered before in FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS but this book takes the story to a more personal level. I hope the movie does the book justice.
