    " love hearing inside stories into the financial side of baseball "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Runetoft | 5/21/2011

    " A classic Lewis book - storytelling without a huge focus on numbers despite their relevance - however if you (as in my case) know nothing about baseball some parts of the book looses value. I would not recommend this book to people without some basic interest and knowledge about baseball. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mason | 5/20/2011

    " Lewis manages to take a subject which I all but swore off in my youth and make it engagingly real. Using the 2002 Oakland A's as a frame, Lewis explores the insurgency of statistical analysis in America's favorite pastime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bill | 5/15/2011

    " Took me so long to read this that by the time I did it seemed like I already had...I was completely familiar with all the themes of the book from having read them elsewhere. STILL--very entertaining and well worth the read. "
