This book is so awesome...so awesome!!! I may be partially biased because I've always been an A's fan, and I've also always been really cheap (a piker, my family affectionately calls me), and this book basically glorifies both of those things. And it doesn't even try to glorify them, it just tells it like it is, which makes both having small amounts of money and being the Oakland A's seem totally rad...dude. I got this from the library but I think I'm going to have to use some of my store credit at my local use bookstore to get a copy, because really, it was that good. I was skeptical at first when everyone said it was so great, and the very beginning didn't really, I don't know, reach out to me in a super compelling way, but somewhere the book completely won me over. Color me awed of what a genius Billy Beane is!
