The most interesting part of this book was the history of baseball statistics. I grew up believing that the stats could tell you a lot about the game, and I didn't realize how nascent that science was until the seventies. It always seemed to go hand in hand with baseball as I was growing up.

Quotes Valerie Liked

Michael Lewis
“The sheer quantity of brain power that hurled itself voluntarily and quixotically into the search for new baseball knowledge was either exhilarating or depressing, depending on how you felt about baseball. The same intellectual resources might have cured the common cold, or put a man on Pluto.”
Michael Lewis, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game
