Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

Michael Lewis, read by Scott Brick. Random House, unabridged, eight CDs, 10.5 hrs., $19.99 ISBN 978-0-307-96695-7
In order to compete in professional baseball, conventional wisdom says a team has to have a solid cash flow and a flawless recruiting program. Oakland A’s general manager Billy Bean took another path to success and built a winning team from a collection of traditionally undervalued players. Scott Brick’s winning performance combines pitch-perfect narration that captures the spirit of Lewis’s text with a knack for reading sports stats, facts, and figures. Brick skillfully navigates an unsteady sea of information to produce a flawless reading that will keep listeners enthralled for hours. They will root for the underdog and gain a solid understanding of exactly why money can’t always buy a championship. A Norton paperback. (Sept.)
