    I'm not a crazy baseball fan, but this book communicates the world of baseball very well. Lewis has a talent for giving you access to other worlds: baseball, Wall Street, and so on. It deals with the apparent paradox of the Oakland A's success in the 1990s and early years of the new millennium. The A's had one of the lowest ratios of total player salaries to wins in the league and they accomplished this by using new ideas in statistics and scouting. Lewis makes this book fun to read. This is a wonderful gift for a baseball fan or for the significant other of the baseball fan.

    Best book ever. Quality #4: Any man I date must like to read and be intelligent. If he's read Moneyball it's definitely a plus. If he looks like the Brad Pitt version of Billy Beane...even better.
