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?

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

Great book to listen to.

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.
