How about The Kid Who Only Hit Homeruns? Just kidding. :-b I really liked Moneyball. Even though it was a lot of numbers I liked to get an inside account of what Billy Beane's thought process was. I haven't read the other two but will have to check them out.

I really enjoyed reading James' book about the Hall of Fame. I don't remember the title though.

I didn't really care for Sam Walkers Fantasyland. Too many dull chapters.
