    Moneyball is a quest for something that money can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected by a brotherhood of baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, and physics professors. These numbers prove that the traditional measure of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. This information has been around for years, and nobody paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland A's.

    Steven says: "Best Audible Book Yet"
    "Excellent Book- Goes well beyond Baseball"
    Overall

    Being new to Audible, this was the first Audiobook I have listened to the whole way through, which I did in only a couple days because it is so good. Michael Lewis' keen observations go well beyond the sport of Baseball; indeed the science of human misjudgement, its victims, and the issues which those who expoit it face are absolutely fascinating. I dont follow baseball, nor have I played (I got the book because I liked Liar's Poker so much), but was completely blown away by Lewis' amazing ability to get to the heart of an issue & enthrall with a story about a sport which was previously off my radar. One of the best non-fiction books I have ever read.
