Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game by Michael Lewis

In Moneyball, Michael Lewis (author of Liar's Poker) turns his attention to Major League Baseball and asks the following question: if the teams with the highest salaries consistently do well, why are the Oakland Athletics always one of the best teams with one of the lowest payrolls? The answer, according to Lewis, is their general manager, Billy Beane, and his revolutionary approach to baseball. Billy Beane chooses and schools his players based on new statistics that he thought were more important than traditional ones, and concentrated on gathering players to fit his new theories. This is a book that should appeal to more than the baseball enthusiast, but to anyone who enjoys to the story of the underdog taking on the establishment and winning. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says, "This book is as much for people who take joy in new ideas as in games. If you're one of them, do not run but walk -- remember, always take the walk -- to the bookstore and get Moneyball."
