    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"
    "Made me fall in love with baseball again"
    Overall

    I listened to this book, and now I can't shut up about it...full of invigorating details, Moneyball confirms the deeply held suspicions most of us have about how to run not just a baseball team, but a business, or maybe a life: that a lot of 'received wisdom' is a lot of crap, and that a maverick who sticks to his guns can do it better than the Old Boys Club. Just knowing that there is a Billy Beane out there, looking for the things that everyone else overlooks, watching out for unappreciated talents and misfits...it's enough to make me start happily scrutinizing the sports page like I haven't done since I was a kid. To anyone that feels undervalued in your job, your life: listen to this book, and listen to the story of Scott Hatteberg.
