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.
Michael Lewis, the noted author of LIAR'S POKER and THE NEW NEW THING, examines the financial philosophy that Billy Beane, GM for the Oakland Athletics, has made famous. MONEYBALL explores how the A's, a perennial favorite, can outplay teams that spend twice as much on players' salaries, and what the thinking is behind their success. The story of a team and their manager, and the strategies that enabled them to beat the system, make for a most enjoyable book, even for non-fans. A New York Times Notable Book for 2003.
