Not Exactly Moneyball..
Michael Lewis, author of Moneyball, has just released a new book titled: The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game. This time, he looks at the unsung heroes in football, most notably, the importance of a left-tackle to a team’s success. Lewis tells the personal story of Michael Oher much in the same way that he told the story of Billy Beane. I enjoyed his style in Moneyball, and I would imagine that The Blind Side is also a good read.
I plan on purchasing and reading The Blind Side as soon as I am able to find sometime in between reading The Bonfire of the Vanities (for History of Journalism class) and writing my senior thesis (“The Stem Cell Divide: How Embryonic Stem-Cell Research Transformed the Republican Party”)
