Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game by Michael Lewis

Moneyball is way more entertaining than it has any right to be. It follows the story of the low-budget Oakland A’s and their unorthodox general manager Billy Beane as they use statistics and the scientific method to succeed against teams with much larger payrolls. Lewis is a very entertaining writer, at times laugh out loud funny, who has turned what could have been a very dry subject into a real page turner. I read this in one day, which is unusual for me with non-fiction. Highly recommended, especially in the dead of winter when the beginning of baseball season seems so far away.
