Moneyball (Movie Tie-in Edition) (Movie Tie-in Editions)
"You need know absolutely nothing about baseball to appreciate the wit, snap, economy . . . and incisiveness of [Moneyball]. Lewis has hit another one out of the park." -Janet Maslin, New York TimesBilly Beane, the Oakland A's general manager, is leading a revolution. Reinventing his team on a budget, he needs to outsmart the richer teams. He signs undervalued players whom the scouts consider flawed but who have a knack for getting on base, scoring runs, and winning games. Moneyball is a quest for the secret of success in baseball and a tale of the search for new baseball knowledge-insights that will give the little guy who is willing to discard old wisdom the edge over big money.
