Summary
Dr. Bennet Omalu discovered something he could not ignore. The NFL tried to silence him. His courage would change everything. / Bennet Omalu, a young forensic neuropathologist, picked up a scalpel and made a discovery in September of 2002 in a dingy morgue in downtown Pittsburgh that would rattle America in ways he never intended. Omalu was new to America, chasing the dream, a deeply spiritual man escaping the wounds of civil war in Nigeria. The body on the slab in front of him belonged to Mike Webster, a.k.a. "Iron Mike," Hall of Fame center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, fifty years of age, one of the greatest to ever play the game. After retiring in 1990, Webster had suffered a decline that was dizzyingly steep. Toward the end of Webster's life, he was living out of his van, Tasering himself to relieve his chronic pain, and fixing his rotting teeth with Super Glue. "How did this happen?" Omalu asked himself. How did a young man like Mike Webster end up like this? The search for answers would change Omalu's life forever and put him in the crosshairs of The National Football League, one of the most powerful corporations in America. What Omalu discovered in Mike Webster's brain was the one truth the NFL would do anything to keep secret; proof that his mental deterioration was no accident, but a disease, caused by relentless blows to the head, that could affect everyone playing the game. Concussion is the true story of one unlikely man's courageous decision to stand up to a multibillion-dollar colossus bent on silencing him, and to tell the world the truth. -- Provided by publisher, taken from container
