Description
Leading a quiet revolution in Major League Baseball, the Oakland Athletics' general manager Billy Beane found a new way to build a championship team in 2002 when he was confronted with a miniscule budget. Beane ignored traditional performance stats and instead signed undervalued players whom the scouts considered flawed, yet who had a knack for getting on base, scoring runs, and winning games. The inspiration for the Oscar-nominated Brad Pitt film of the same name, Moneyball is Michael Lewis's firsthand account of Beane's program and his miraculous 2002 season, when the A's won 20 consecutive games, an American League record.

"You need know absolutely nothing about baseball to appreciate the wit, snap, economy ... and incisiveness of [this book]. Lewis has hit another one out of the park."NYTimes
