Editorial Reviews

“The best book of the year, [] already feels like the most influential book on sports ever written. If you're a baseball fan, is a must.” — People

“Lewis has hit another one out of the park.... You need know absolutely nothing about baseball to appreciate the wit, snap, economy and incisiveness of [Lewis's] thoughts about it.” — Janet Maslin (New York Times)

“ is the best business book Lewis has written. It may be the best business book has written.” — Mark Gerson (Weekly Standard)

“By playing Boswell to Beane's Samuel Johnson, Lewis has given us one of the most enjoyable baseball books in years.” — Lawrence S. Ritter (New York Times Book Review)

“Ebullient, invigorating.... Provides plenty of action, both numerical and athletic, on the field and in the draft-day war room.” — Lev Grossman (Time)

“A journalistic tour de force.” — Richard J. Tofel (Wall Street Journal)

“Michael Lewis's beautiful obsession with the idea of value has once again yielded gold.... explains baseball's startling new insight; that for all our dreams of blasts to the bleachers, the sport's hidden glory lies in not getting out.” — Garry Trudeau

“I understood about one in four words of , and it's still the best and most engrossing sports book I've read in years. If you know anything about baseball, you will enjoy it four times as much as I did, which means that you might explode.” — Nick Hornby (The Believer)
