Kenny also points out how fossilized sportswriters have been electing the wrong MVPs and ignoring legitimate candidates for the Hall of Fame; why managers are hired based on their looks; and how the most important position in baseball may just be "director of decision sciences".
Ahead of the Curve debunks the old way of analyzing baseball and ushers in a new era of straightforward logic. Illustrated with unique anecdotes from those who have reshaped the game, it's a must-listen for fans, players, managers, and fantasy enthusiasts.

I have grown up in the age of saber metrics but this book allowed me to understand it in a more comprehensive way. The narrating is done by Brian Kenny and he does an amazing job at it. The book has long chapters that don't just give a form of thinking, but gives many facts and statistics to back it up. The book doesn't tell you that saber metrics is the only way to look at things, it's just that it is a new way which allows teams to have a competitive advantage over ones hat don't. Great book.

Very well done, my favorite audiobook thus far
If you could sum up Ahead of the Curve in three words, what would they be?
Brian Kenny Unleashed...
What does Brian Kenny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Brian does a fantastic job with the book itself, but I absolutely loved hearing him tell the stories and share the experiences that he does in the book. Finally someone that tells it in a way that makes it impossible to not understand.
Any additional comments?
An absolute must read, for anyone who loves baseball and/or wants to better understand the new metrics and analytics that are transforming the game today.
