A great chronology on the emergence of the left tackle position in pro football. Who could forget that devastating hit by LT on Theismann that ended his career. Lewis does a good job explaining what has led to one of the most important positions in football, protecting the QBs blind side.

The parallel story of Michael Oher who could become the next Jonathan Odgen or Walter Jones is a quite puzzling though. Especially Lewis' insinuation that the Tuohy's took him in so that they could steer him towards Ole Miss.

Not as good as Moneyball, but the book is easy to read and well-researched.

Very good read, keeps you interested. I am a football fan and it was funny, sad and exciting the whole way through.
