內容簡介

震撼人心的故事,揭開腦神經的奧秘與難解之謎。
小說依據真人故事撰寫,並拍成同名電影「震盪效應」,由威爾史密斯主演。

故事描述腦神經專家Bennet Omalu發現橄欖球運動原因為腦部運動損傷(CTE)而造成對身體終其一生不可磨滅的傷害,他從這位在美國橄欖球史上有一席之地的Mike Webster自殺的遺體上,找到不曾公開的秘密,卻也是每個橄欖球球員無可迴避的事實,為了出人頭的,為了勝利,在賽場上無數次直接的腦部撞擊,對人體產生的後遺症,遠遠大出我們的了解。

Bennet Omalu不斷尋找答案,素有Iron Mike之稱的Mike Webster,偉大的球員最後的結局令人難以接受,他如何會智力衰減到最後自殘?而這個事實也是NFL想忽略。
 
扣人心弦,場面浩大,Concussion是一個激動人心的真人真事,披露引發美式足球員相繼自殺的真兇—腦部運動損傷,Bennet Omalu也面臨國家美式足球聯盟的重重阻力。

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Will Smith, Concussion is the riveting, unlikely story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, the pathologist who made one of the most significant medical discoveries of the twenty-first century, a discovery that challenges the existence of America’s favorite sport and puts Omalu in the crosshairs of football’s most powerful corporation: the NFL.
 
In September of 2002, in a dingy morgue in downtown Pittsburgh, a young forensic neuropathologist named Bennet Omalu picked up a scalpel and made a discovery 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 a fifty-year-old named Mike Webster—aka “Iron Mike”—a Hall of Fame center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the greatest to ever play the game. After retiring in 1990, Webster had suffered a dizzyingly steep decline. Toward the end of his 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 one of the most powerful corporations in America: the National Football League. What Omalu discovered in Mike Webster’s brain—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—was the one truth the NFL would do anything to keep secret.
 
Taut, gripping, and gorgeously told, Concussion is the stirring 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.
