I wish I could go back in time and not buy this book
This is primarily a book about American Football. Stats, history, anecdotes of past players. Here and there are tiny sprinklings of Michael Oher's story. I bought the book to read about his life, but disappointingly, his story is pushed into the background as the reader is "impressed" with Michael Lewis' vast knowledge of the politics and history of American Football.
