Product Description

By the author of the bestselling Moneyball: in football, as in life, the value we place on people changes with the rules of the games they play.

The young man at the center of this extraordinary and moving story will one day be among the most highly paid athletes in the National Football League. When we first meet him, he is one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or any of the things a child might learn in school such as, say, how to read or write. Nor has he ever touched a football.

What changes? He takes up football, and school, after a rich, Evangelical, Republican family plucks him from the mean streets. Their love is the first great force that alters the world's perception of the boy, whom they adopt. The second force is the evolution of professional football itself into a game where the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Our protagonist turns out to be the priceless combination of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback's greatest vulnerability: his blind side.

    This review was written for The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game.
    Certainly this is a book about football. As a Christian, I was very let down by the lack of evidence of Christ within this book. I was let down as this book and movie have been marketed as Christian and short of mentioning the name of the Christian school, the church the family attended and a couple of other slight mentions of something related to religion, I saw absolutely no praise, honor or thanks given to God. There was no reflection of Christ's goodness mentioned or shown. I was disturbed that Mr. Tuohy would "go looking for a loophole to exploit". That verbage alone is contrary to Christianity. The foul language was un-necessary. I wholeheartedly admire what the Tuohy family did for this young man. But to label this as a Christian book is a gross distortion.

    I enjoyed the movie much more than the book. I was wanting to know more about Michael Oher's life than about other football players.
