I'm now a huge fan of how Michael Lewis writes. Really Looking forward to reading the rest of his books.

Being a huge baseball fan this one held my interest all the way thru. And it also showed if you believe in an idea you shouldn't drop it because it's different.

I've never read a book so fast. Thoroughly entertaining. This book is less about baseball and more about the human psyche.

I'm not much of a sports fan, but this book taught me a lot about both business and baseball. Even better than the movie.

I liked it but I was a little young for me. The recommended age for me is 16 and up.

I found the content of this book fascinating. The application of data from sabermetrics is manifested in so many aspects of everyday life. I'm already looking into more material on predictive statistics because if this book. Billy Beane is such an interesting character and really paved the way for a new way to look at the management of professional sports.

A good story about challenging traditional beliefs of MLB by asking "Why are we doing it this way?"

Michael Lewis really did a great job researching his topic and told the story in a compelling way.

A good book that shows why money can't necessarily buy a championship baseball team. I also learned tips that might help me out in a fantasy baseball league.

Absolutely fantastic! Now my favorite book of all time, I wish I had read this ten years ago! Michael Lewis provides a detailed account of the machinations of a revolution in baseball. Maybe of greater significance is the abstract application of rational data analysis to attain optimal, efficient outcomes in market driven systems and potentially non-market centric systems (read as Government). While not necessarily a management panacea, the potential is compelling. A must read for any aspiring leader, manager or change agent inspired to upset the status quo.

It was a bit of a tough read. The stories about the team were good. The aftermath was pretty good. What the writer could have noted was the history of the A"s where they always had to do with little money.
