Michael Lewis is an ok writer with bland narratives and uninteresting perspective. The one thing he does write is in choosing the topics he writes about. This book, along with Liar's Poker is a case in point. He basically delves into a subject matter with minimal attention and focus until this book and helps turn it into something everyone talks about. Although Beane's philosophy and focus has since shifted from some of the Sabermetrics outlined in this book, its still a must read for true baseball fans to understand the economics and strategy involved in baseball scouting.
