Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game (Unabridged)

by Michael Lewis

Open iTunes to Buy

Description

Moneyball reveals a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of Major League teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win.... How can we not cheer for David?

Customer Reviews

Amazing

I don't like to watch sports, but I enjoy watching sports movies. The movie brought me to this book. If you think of the movie as a good steak sandwich then this book is prime rib dinner.

This book is an achievement in authorship. It stitches together many little stories and bits of information from remote areas and times and brings them together to support the narrative in a way that comes to a logical conclusion.

This book is as useful for business as it is for the love of baseball. Moneyball is a viewpoint. The reader could just as easily use the title of the book as a verb to describe the approach to business problems.

In my opinion, this book is worth your time.

A great book about baseball...and more

Fascinating read in the same vein as the football book "Why England Lose".

A tad too technical, but worth a listen.

If you are a true baseball fan, you'll appreciate this book. It gets a little over-the-top with its analysis of the game and statistics, but I came away with a little more perspective into the game that I have loved since my youth. This is a far cry from the movie; but both are very good.
