Moneyball: Audiobook of the Month
Moneyball reveals 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 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, [author Michael] 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?
Until the end of the month, you can get Michael Lewis’ Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game (Unabridged) on iTunes for $5.95. This title is narrated by Scott Brick — one of my favorites — who also read Omnivore’s Dilemna and Atlas Shrugged.
