Audio Book Summary

Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of major league teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors.

In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win . . . how can we not cheer for David?

Reviews

  • James B

    Well written, excellent if you even are a mild baseball enthusiast. Starting to be somewhat dated. The baseball community seems to be slowing moving from "he has a good face, aggressive hitter" to something more along the lines of using metrics to evaluate players.

  • Karen B

    Good narrator. He doesn't get in the way but lets the story stand on its own.
