Let me preface this review by saying that I am not a big baseball fan. I really enjoy football - baseball tends to bore me. So when Zack told me I had to read this book because he wanted to see the movie with me, I put it off for a very, very long time. So long that I barely finished it before the movie was released.
I was pleasantly surprised at my enjoyment of this book. Lewis did a great job of following Billy Beane and the Oakland A's as the organization attempted to win with a fraction of the salary base as some of baseball's powerhouses. My elementary knowledge of baseball did not hinder my enjoyment or understanding of this book - for that I have the author to thank : )
