Description

Moneyball is a quest for the secret of success in baseball. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Michael Lewis follows the low-budget Oakland A's, visionary general manager Billy Beane, and the strange brotherhood of amateur baseball theorists. They are all in search of new baseball knowledge-insights that will give the little guy who is willing to discard old wisdom the edge over big money.

Review quote

"I understood about one in four words of Moneyball, and it's still the best and most engrossing sports book I've read in years. If you know anything about baseball, you will enjoy it four times as much as I did, which means that you might explode." -- Nick Hornby - The Believer "Michael Lewis's beautiful obsession with the idea of value has once again yielded gold.... Moneyball explains baseball's startling new insight; that for all our dreams of blasts to the bleachers, the sport's hidden glory lies in not getting out." -- Garry Trudeau "A journalistic tour de force." -- Richard J. Tofel - Wall Street Journal "Ebullient, invigorating.... Provides plenty of action, both numerical and athletic, on the field and in the draft-day war room." -- Lev Grossman - Time "By playing Boswell to Beane's Samuel Johnson, Lewis has given us one of the most enjoyable baseball books in years." -- Lawrence S. Ritter - New York Times Book Review "Moneyball is the best business book Lewis has written. It may be the best business book anyone has written." -- Mark Gerson - Weekly Standard "Lewis has hit another one out of the park.... You need know absolutely nothing about baseball to appreciate the wit, snap, economy and incisiveness of [Lewis's] thoughts about it." -- Janet Maslin - New York Times "The best book of the year, [Moneyball] already feels like the most influential book on sports ever written. If you're a baseball fan, Moneyball is a must." -- People
