"The Blind Side is a wonderful tale." John Gapper, Financial Times "Lewis has made a habit of writing about sport recently, but sport is really only a subtext for a much more meaningful examination of class and race. I wept at the end, something I have not done at the end of a work of non-fiction for a very long time." Malcolm Gladwell, The Observer, Books of the Year 2006 "The strongest strand of The Blind Side is about sporting strategy. When brain defeats brawn in one of Michael Lewis's books, you can almost hear the prose style lift off." The Times "[The Blind Side] provides deep insights about sport and America." Ed Smith, The Spectator "...a brilliant analysis of the evolution of American football..." Nick Hornby, Guardian "Lewis is the finest storyteller of our generation, and this is his best book...it's actually an extraordinary story about love and redemption." Malcolm Gladwell, Best Books 2008, The Week "...a brilliant book..." The Independent "...a compelling book..." The Economist "The Blind Side combines tactical analysis with an account of a young sportsman's astonishing life and career. With this and Moneyball, Lewis has written the two best sports books of the last five years." Nick Hornby's Top 40 Books, The TimesRezension:
"[Lewis] is advancing a new genre of journalism." -- George F. Will "The Blind Side ?works on three levels. First as a shrewd analysis of the NFL; second, as an expose of the insanity of big-time college football recruiting; and, third, as a moving portrait of the positive effect that love, family, and education can have in reversing the path of a life that was destined to be lived unhappily and, most likely, end badly." -- Wes Lukowsky
