This book is one of the best baseball and business books out there. It should be in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Moneyball is essentially a journey to find the secret of success in baseball. Billy Beane is a baseball manager. Author Michael Lewis has written a business masterpiece. The story revolves around a small group of undervalued professional baseball players and executives. Some of these players had been rejected as unfit for the big leagues. The team ends up turning themselves into one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball. But the idea for the book came well before I had good reason to write it―before I had a story to fall in love with. It began, really, with an innocent question: how did one of the poorest teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics, win so many games? Billy used software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers and physics professors.
