Sowell Swift, before experiencing a life-transforming accident, was a physically normal young man of somewhat above-average intelligence. At the age of fifteen, he survived being accidentally electrocuted. Subsequent to that incident, the functioning of his mind and muscles was "accelerated." (Comparing it to the functioning of a computer, it seemed as though his "internal Central Processing Unit," having formerly been a "286 megabyte" unit, was supercharged into functioning as a powerhouse "10 Gigabyte" CPU.) This story accompanies Sowell through his final three years of high school, detailing his participation and prowess in all athletics, subsequent to his near-fatal accident. It then recounts how Sowell Swift transitions into professional sports, eventually becoming an "MVP" (most valuable player) for the New York Yankees. The story also looks in on Sowell's emotional struggles, letting the reader share in Sowell's reactions, thoughts, emotions, and reasoning processes. There is much laughter, but also some tears. Although he is physically superior, he must still grow through difficult emotional development, and into maturity and manhood. He has to face what every adolescent faces - and inevitably, that is a daunting challenge. The story offers the opportunity of vicariously sharing in the experiences, (with the highs, the lows, the pain of love, and the joy of love,) of a humorous and very likable young man, one whom most of us would choose as a close friend, if given the opportunity.
