Description du produit

Revue de presse

"...the best and most engrossing sports book I've read for years. If you know anything about baseball, you will enjoy it four times as much as I did, which means you might explode." Nick Hornby "...his grandest tour de force yet." Tom Wolfe "...the most riveting sports book of the year." The Observer "[Lewis has] a gift for pithy observation and a wonderful turn of phrase..." --The Times Literary Supplement --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of major league teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors.

In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win . . . how can we not cheer for David? --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

I used to teach statistics and econmetrics, I used to play baseball in France so I bought this book is for me :-). Like every others books of Michael Lewis, this one is very interesting. Easy to read even if you're not a statistician or a baseball player, this book is well documented. I've had pleasure to read it and learn lots of things. I recommend it to my students in master of finance.

I was told "it's not only for baseball fans", but I have to confirm that for me it was!
Don't get me wrong, the content focussing on dedication and drive is great, but it all goes down to baseball games. Not my thing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant book about a baseball revolution 20 juin 2015
Par D. G. Devin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Read this book only if you are prepared to realize that much of what you thought you knew about baseball is nonsense. This book is an amazing eye-opener about a then radical new way of managing a pro baseball team that allowed the dirt-poor Oakland A's to win as many games as the fat-cat NY Yankees. Using detailed statistical analysis created by baseball fans like Bill James who wanted to know how to make better teams in their fantasy baseball leagues, Oakland GM Billy Beane drafted or traded for players other teams considered sub-standard or worn-out and Oakland became a post-season threat despite having the second lowest payroll in the major leagues. Although the baseball establishment reacted with horror and contempt to having its time-honored methods of choosing players challenged, the approach used in Moneyball has been widely adopted by many teams including the Boston Red Sox who won the World Series shortly after doing so. Since reading this book I laugh every time I hear an announcer use the phrase, "productive out", knowing that over the long haul it's teams that don't trade outs for bases that win more games. The Moneyball approach remains controversial with many fans and baseball industry insiders--it's more fun to watch someone bunt a runner to second than it is to watch that hitter draw a walk--but the numbers show that over time the walks are more valuable to a team. Regardless of how much you agree with Bill James and Billy Beane, this is a terrific book that will make you really think about how the game of baseball works.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific read. For some reason 7 janvier 2017
Par Mark Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Terrific read. For some reason, I didn't read it until 2016. It has a different perspective now after 13 years. We have already seen the affects of Moneyball and Sabermetrics on baseball. Theo Epstein seems to be the greatest beneficiary of the theory, the man who used sabermetrics and had a budget to spend. Two World Series victories, one for the Red Sox and another for the Cubs after many decades of losing. The Cubs didn't win the World Series in 2016; Theo Epstein was the winner. I liked reading Moneyball to follow the theories and careers of those who were the big players in the book. The afterward by Lewis gives a lot of insight into the reaction of baseball's old boy network, the old guard who rejected change.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I don't like baseball. Let's put that out there 22 novembre 2016
Par J.H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I don't like baseball. Let's put that out there. This book helped me outline exactly what it is that I don't like about baseball, and how to explain that to the baseball fanatics I'm surrounded by. It's well written and an interesting take on 'america's game'. It had me considering some of the reasons why I don't enjoy baseball and led me to do further research on the game.

Good book.

Moneyball will go down as one of my favorite books. Lewis does an incredible job putting the reader in the As organization. I felt like I was there as this story happened. I experienced all range of emotions (including tears and laughter) as I read through the pages. This was one of those books that you don't want to put down. If you've seen the movie already...read the book! The stories not captured by the movie are so emotional and entertaining. At the end of the book your left with the feeling that there are multiple was to value people and things in your life. Some people will hate you for your views but it doesn't mean you should change yourself or your views. Go out and prove your right.

I saw the movie, good movie. I heard of Moneyball a lot and recently I read Trading Bases by Joe Peta that talks about baseball and gambiing and Wall Street. It whetted my apetite to read Moneyball and even though the book was written 2003, it still resonates today. I was not disappointed. It was easy to read and being a sport fan, I recognize players of years ago but what like about the book is that you were like a fly in the wall with strong narrative skills explaining what Billy Beane was doing in a easy and simple way that you sort of understand this fascination with numbers.

The plot is simple, Billy Beane was a baseball player that had superstar written all over him. He over thinks about being a ball player and pretty much is out as a player. He comes back and re-invents himself as a General Manager of the Oakland A's and piggybacking from Bill JamesWho is the father of saber metrics), Sandy Alderson, the GM before him who believe in putting numbers to player on efficiency. The mantra was on base percentage. Even if the guy was blind, if he had great OBP, Beane will try to get him. Oakland with no money and in the low rent district had to compete with the likes of the Yankees( who one player made more then the whole Oakland time worth around 120 million). But compete they did, Beane made it a science, his assistant Paul Deposta from Harvard- gleaned the most of players no body wanted. No team was calculating or running the numbers, the way the Oakland did( now each team has several number analyst running the numbers).

It a great book. See the movie first then read the book- if you do it reverse you will be disappointed. The book explains it so that most people could understand this phenomena.
