This review is from: Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game (Paperback)
This is a book I just couldn't put down, usually reserved for a good piece of fiction. But Michael Lewis' in-depth account of the paradigm shift coming to baseball in America is a fascinating story of a few individuals challenging conventional wisdom and, in an unorthodox way, building a winning team from castoffs and unlikely heroes. The cast of real-life characters is central to the story itself, from Bill James to Billy Beane. The results are also very real; the Oakland A's prove a low budget operation can consistently produce winning teams. I've since started tracking the A's just to watch the genius revealed.
