Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game Summary

"This delightfully written, lesson-laden book deserves a place of its own in the Baseball Hall of Fame." —Forbes

In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Michael Lewis follows the low-budget Oakland A's, visionary general manager Billy Beane, and the strange brotherhood of amateur baseball theorists. They are all in search of new baseball knowledge—insights that will give the little guy who is willing to discard old wisdom the edge over big money.

Book Reviews


Rude Acknowledgements1 star

In this book, the author criticizes my friend, Ms. Dani Mabry's father, John calling him a so called "bench player". This statement is false for he is an exuberant example of a ball player. Shame on the author for his use of wording.15

Money Ball reignited my interest in baseball after gradually falling away from the game the last 55 years. Now if they will just move the fences back 40 feet so like in Ty Cobb's day the home run king scores less than 10 round-trippers!55


Fantastic!!!!5 star

…and so begins my own walk into the data in baseball. Thank you Michael!55

Moneyball hit it out of the park!4 star

This book opened my eyes to a whole new outlook in baseball. Great reading for this person who considered himself a traditionalist. But now have a very different view on about the sport and the people in and around it.....45

Terrific book! Ten years after its publication, the ideas that were so controversial then are still being debated now. I will use the book as a reference as this year's playoffs are played.55
