"Engagingly written" -- Sacramento Bee
"New get your calculators and slide rules handy. Baseball isn't brain surgery, it's physics..." -- BookPage
"The authors explore the fascinating gaps between physics and perception that make hitting a baseball such an interesting challenge. Their book provides the layman with entertaining explanations of some of baseball's most cherished assumptions-the curvatures of pitched balls, the behavior of batters and their bats, the overall improvement of players through the years. It can make an old ballplayer slap his forehead and say, 'So that's what was going on!'" -- David Baldwin, Ph.D., Enterprise Data Solutions
