    Michael Lewis, with his usual narrative flair, examines the fallacy behind the major league baseball refrain that the team with the biggest wallet is supposed to win. Over the past four years the Oakland Athletics, a major league team with a minor league payroll, have had one of the best records in the country. General Manager Billy Beene is putting into practice on the field revolutionary principles to build his team that have been concocted by geek statisticians and college professors, rather than using the old scouting ...

Fascinating

by Marc B on Oct 20, 2011

How much does anyone outside of baseball know about the business of the game? Besides being a great story about an obscure writer, an ex-ballplayer/current GM, and a new way of evaluating players, this book is a fascinating look at how MLB teams are run. Loved it.

Moneyball: A Home Run

by BlueHorseshoe on Jul 26, 2007

Mr. Lewis's excellent book offers an illuminating, "inside-baseball", look at America's pastime for fans, and applicable lessons for executives and managers in business. Moneyball is a David & Goliath story: examining how the Oakland A's revolutionary management strategies made optimal use of a small budget to produce one of the winningest teams in the game, challenging even the highest-budget franchises for supremacy. The underlying lesson of the book is that blind reliance on "conventional wisdom" is usually a fool's errand. Moneyball is entertaining and insightful; it's a worth-while read.
