  • Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games Are Won

    Drawing from Moskowitz's original research, as well as studies from fellow economists such as bestselling author Richard Thaler, the authors look at: the influence home-field advantage has on the outcomes of games in all sports and why it exists; the surprising truth about the universally accepted axiom that defense wins championships; the subtle biases that umpires exhibit in calling balls and strikes in key situations; the unintended consequences of referees' tendencies in every sport to "swallow the whistle," and more.

    This is the rare occasion where I might reccomend the real book over the audio version. The book is a bit numbers and tables heavy and would be easier to see those in print rather than hear them recited. Other than that the book was pretty good. It covers a variety of sports and topics. Some parts were a bit dry, but overall would reccomend it!

    What's this audiobook about? It's about a journey. It's about eating, living, and breathing the most popular sport in the history of America. The passion. The pageantry. The pigskin. Thanks to his role as host of NFL Total Access, Eisen gets to go to virtually every event on the NFL Calendar: the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl, the Scouting Combine, the NFL Draft, and the Hall of Fame Induction Weekend. Rich Eisen is there, so go along for the ride with him.

    Overall

    If you want to hear Rich Eisen brag about him self this book is for you. NFL being the subject is the only thing that makes this book tolerable. As always Eisen can take any NFL story and make it about him. Like Al Gore believes he invented the internet, you cant help but wonder if Eisen thinks he invented the NFL. For a fringe fan you may find this entertaining but if you are true hard core NFL fan I would reccomend "A Few Seconds Of Panic" by Stefan Fetsis. Its a way better book and I took tons more from it.
