3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By A Tennis Enthusiast on February 17, 2010
Format: Paperback
As a former competitive tennis tournament player, I found this book to be quite interesting and informative. It successfully combines the psychological and mathematical research to dispel the myth that "natural ability" alone makes a superior athlete or team. In fact, it provides evidence that those who train their bodies and minds longer, tougher and more precisely will do the best at their given sport. Enjoy every thought-provoking word of "Who Will Win The Big Game?". I did.

In sports betting it's all about getting an edge. This book offers unique insights in to what makes up a winner. I love the fact that they backup their theories with hard facts. I'm now using their grading systems in my day to day sports handicapping analysis with positive results.

Format: Kindle Edition
It is very exciting what happens when a hedge fund portfolio manager turns his mathematical tools on the challenging world of sports analysis. It is not a surprise that Chin, the mathematician of the pair, has done a remarkable thing.

What I found both inspiring and innovative in this wonderful slim volume is that the authors started out with a rich model of how winners tend to win: Consistent high-level play with low levels of errors. They then use mathematical models to bring out those patterns in historical data. Now, of course, if every athlete were playing against the same foe in identical circumstances, it would be simple to observe consistent high-level play with low levels of errors. But, of course, I play against much tougher adversaries than you do...

So, how do you detect who is playing with confidence? Who is coachable? These are very dirty test tubes indeed! And that is what makes it such a valuable piece of work.

As an athlete myself, I find it heartening that the data suggests that things that are very much under my control, like "distraction control" or fundamentals related to consistency - are factors which this pair show are very related to the probability of victory. This is a book for the thinking competitor, as well as that competitor's coach, trainer and manager.
