Synopsis:
The Oakland Athletics have a secret: a winning baseball team is made, not bought.
In major league baseball the biggest wallet is supposed to win: rich teams spend four times as much on talent as poor teams. But over the past four years, the Oakland Athletics, a major league team with a minor league payroll, have had one of the best records. Last year their superstar, Jason Giambi, went to the superrich Yankees. It hasn't made any difference to Oakland: their fabulous season included an American League record for consecutive victories.
Billy Beene, general manager of the Athletics, is putting into practice on the field
revolutionary principles garnered from geek statisticians and college professors. Michael Lewis's brilliant, irreverent reporting takes us from the dugouts and locker rooms—where coaches and players struggle to unlearn most of what they know about pitching and hitting—to the boardrooms, where we meet owners who begin to look like fools at the poker table, spending enormous sums without a clue what they are doing. Combine money, science, entertainment, and egos, and you have a story that Michael Lewis is magnificently suited to tell.

Review:
"[Lewis's] descriptive writing allows Beane and the others in the lively cast of baseball characters to come alive."

Publishers Weekly, 04/28/2003

Review:
"[F]ascinating....Lewis's book is a rare, perhaps uniquely successful attempt to combine the two [hero worship and the day-to-day reality of a ballplayer's life]. It is an uplifting tale, full of engaging characters, presided over by the remarkable figure of Billy Beane, truly a man apart."

David Runciman, London Review of Books, 02/19/2004
