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

Moneyball is a quest for the secret of success in baseball. 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.

    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!
  • Fantastic!!!!

  • One of my favorite reads ever.

    Gave a great prospective on how sabermetrics are being looked at by ball clubs in baseball. Must read for any true fan of baseball.

    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.....

    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.

    I've read it twice. Extremely humorous and entertaining. Very thought provoking not only about baseball but about how it is possible to rethink concepts and views that have long been deemed to be definitive and valid beyond question. Highly recommended.
