Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

by

Following the low-budget Oakland Athletics, their larger-than-life general manager, Billy Beane, and the strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts, Lewis has written not only "the single most influential baseball book ever" (Rob Neyer, "Slate") but also what "may be the best book ever written on business" ("Weekly Standard").

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.
