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

Jeff Hamilton, January 6, 2012

As a big baseball fan, there's much to like about this behind-the-scene examination of the building of an overachieving small market baseball tean (the Oakland A's)during the early 2000's.
More a book about business philosphy than is evident in the recent big screen success starring Brad Pitt, the writing style nevertheless remains compelling and raises interesting questions about why traditional thinking and habits, no matter how flawed, can be so hard to change.
