    DescriptionThis is The New York Times best-selling book behind the major motion picture starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Opening this autumn, Moneyball is the story of the Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt). He has an epiphany: all conventional baseball wisdom is wrong. Reinventing his team on a budget, he needs to outsmart the richer teams. Joining with Ivy Leaguer Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), they recruit bargain players whom the scouts consider flawed but who have a knack for getting on base, scoring runs and winning games. They'll either be the laughing stock of baseball or its vindicated underdogs. Moneyball is a Columbia Pictures release directed by Bennett Miller (Capote), from the screenplay written by Steven Zaillian (Gangs of New York) and Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), and produced by Michael De Luca The Social Network) Rachael Horovitz (Grey Gardens) and Scott Rudin (The Social Network).
