Description

"The closest thing to Freakonomics I've seen since the original. A rare combination of terrific storytelling and unconventional thinking. I love this book..."
--Steven D. Levitt, Alvin H. Baum Professor of Economics, University of Chicago, and co-author of Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics

"I love this book. If I told you why, the NBA would fine me again."
--Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks

"Scorecasting is both scholarly and entertaining, a rare double. It gets beyond the cliched narratives and tried-but-not-necessarily-true assumptions to reveal significant and fascinating truths about sports."
--Bob Costas

"A counterintuitive, innovative, unexpected handbook for sports fans interested in the truths that underpin our favorite games. With their lively minds and prose, Moskowitz and Wertheim will change the way you think about and watch sports. Not just for stats nerds, Scorecasting enlightens and entertains. I wish I had thought of it!"
--Jeremy Schaap, ESPN reporter, Author of Cinderella Man.

"(Sports + numbers) x great writing = winning formula. A must read for all couch analysts."
--Richard Thaler, Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics, best-selling author of Nudge.

"Scorecasting will change the way you watch sports, but don't start reading it during a game; you're liable to get lost in it and miss the action. I'm not giving anything away because you'll want to read exactly how they arrived at their conclusions."
--Allen Barra, NJ Star Ledger

"Like Moneyball and Soccernomics before it, Scorecasting crunches the numbers to challenge notions that have been codified into conventional sports wisdom."
--Wired Magazine

"Freakonomics meets Moneyball"
--The Wall Street Journal
