Michael Lewis' book "The Blind Side"

Town Musician

I have read all of Michael Lewis books. They are all good. The football book "The Blind Side" is probably his most engaging, though. Michael Lewis uses two parallel stories. One thread describes how football salaries have changed with the change in the assessment of players who used to be thought of as merely peripheral, e.g. offensive linemen. The other and more important thread describes the truly heartwarming story of an inner city young black disadvantaged teenager who is taken in by a white wealthy family to become an offensive lineman at a southern university. You don't have to like football to love this book.
