Panas's explanations of each of these measurements is very clear, as are his examples.

"Beyond Batting Average" does a fantastic job making complex baseball statistics accessible to average fans. In addition to telling the reader what goes into the statistic, the author gives easy to follow examples throughout the book. Unlike a number of writers that embrace advanced statistics, Panas doesn't attempt to dogmatically sell readers on the benefits of all the metrics he presents in this book. Instead, he presents an honest description of the statistics, allowing readers to evaluate the strengths and weakness of each measure independently. For baseball fans without a background in statistics, this book is extremely accessible and should serve as a nice introduction. For fans that have been actively following baseball statistics, this is a great reference manual. I highly recommend it.

If you love baseball - I mean REALLY love the game for all it offers, down to the analysis and statistics; if you loved studying the backs of baseball cards as a kid, like I did, absorbing and eventually memorizing all the stats and had a bit of pride in the process, you will love this book! The author, Lee Panas, does an awesome job of laying it all out. I stumbled upon the book while looking for something deeper about the game - this is it! It's a fun and very informative read. I highly recommend it!

Even in the vast pool of stats online there is nowhere that has such an excellent explanation of baseball statistics. Breaking down every aspect of the game in numbers Panas not only explains how to find these statistics, but who developed them, why they are used, and what the advantages and disadvantages of each one is.

Whether you are just getting into the game or have been looking at statistics for decades, you will probably learn something from "Beyond Batting Average."

If you have tried understanding the new baseball stats before, but have failed because the numbers overwhelm you, this is the book for you. Panas's explanations of each of these measurements is very clear, as are his examples. Some of the stats covered are Situational Hitting, Baserunning, Component ERA, and others. I found each chapter short, lucid, logically organized, and informative. I learned a lot, and I'll be using this book again and again as I look at baseball with a new, better-informed eye.
