Descriptions du produit

This is The New York Times best-selling book behind the major motion picture starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Opening this autumn, Moneyball is the story of the Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt). He has an epiphany: all conventional baseball wisdom is wrong. Reinventing his team on a budget, he needs to outsmart the richer teams. Joining with Ivy Leaguer Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), they recruit bargain players whom the scouts consider flawed but who have a knack for getting on base, scoring runs and winning games. They'll either be the laughing stock of baseball or its vindicated underdogs. Moneyball is a Columbia Pictures release directed by Bennett Miller (Capote), from the screenplay written by Steven Zaillian (Gangs of New York) and Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), and produced by Michael De Luca The Social Network) Rachael Horovitz (Grey Gardens) and Scott Rudin (The Social Network).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant book about a baseball revolution 20 juin 2015
Par D. G. Devin - Publié sur
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 This will be required reading for my children as they get older! 15 mars 2017

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 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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I don't like baseball. Let's put that out there 22 novembre 2016

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.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific read. For some reason 7 janvier 2017

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.

This is one of the best business book ever written. This is one of the best baseball books ever written. Mr. Lewis is articulate, funny and always educating you as he describes the career arc of Billy Beane through the lens of challenging the norm. How do you stand up for your beliefs against a tidal wave of resistance? At its core, this is what 'Moneyball' is about. I appreciated learning about both how little and how much some people can change. Baseball is such a simple game but the ultimate goal of consistently winning is elusive. And this book does an excellent job detailing how one team chose to evaluate talent and execute a plan. And like a lot of new ideas, went from being viewed as crazy to brilliant.
