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.
