Last weekend, the movie The Blind Side finished second in box office receipts. The film, starring Sandra Bullock, is about a homeless, inner city teen, barely literate, withdrawn and huge. Incredibly, he finds his way into an all-white, suburban Christian school and living in a Memphis mansion built on a fast food fortune. After a lot of struggle, he excels enough to win a college scholarship and today is a starting offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens. The really amazing thing is Michael Oher's story is true. It was first captured in the book by Michael Lewis.

On the Next Sound of Ideas, we reprise our conversation with Lewis about Oher and his adopted family. The Blind Side: The Evolution of a Game.
