The Blind Side – Evolution of a GameDe (autor) Michael Lewis
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 02 Oct 2007
Its not a jock book. Its not a sociology book. Its a storybook about modern society, ancient virtues, and the power of love, money and talent to do a little good.
"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.
