I found this book interesting for several reasons, first, I have been an Oakland A's fan for as long as I can remember. Second, I was at the game on September 4th 2002. The book covers the discrepancy in MLB among team salaries vs. wins. The A's win a disproportionate amount for their small budget. Billy Beans, an ex-player and current GM is looking to find a more efficient way to win with far less money. There is a lot of stats and baseball in this book. I was interested from the get go and loved seeing the story unfold. The science was amazing. For the sensitive reader there is a bit of language. Not surprising given the nature of pro sports I suppose.
