I could say this was the best non-fiction book I've heard or even the best sports story I've heard (surpassing the thrilling Seabiscuit) but it would be more accurate to say simply the best book fiction or non-fiction I've heard. It is a book where the human interest story far surpasses the sports or business themes to create an appeal for a broad range of listeners. I simply could not stop listening to this book until I finished it. By the way I've listened to more than 30 audible books in the past 2 years.

I listened to this book, and now I can't shut up about it...full of invigorating details, Moneyball confirms the deeply held suspicions most of us have about how to run not just a baseball team, but a business, or maybe a life: that a lot of 'received wisdom' is a lot of crap, and that a maverick who sticks to his guns can do it better than the Old Boys Club. Just knowing that there is a Billy Beane out there, looking for the things that everyone else overlooks, watching out for unappreciated talents and misfits...it's enough to make me start happily scrutinizing the sports page like I haven't done since I was a kid. To anyone that feels undervalued in your job, your life: listen to this book, and listen to the story of Scott Hatteberg.
