Moneyball: A Good Read?

Postby shortsavage » Fri Jan 09, 2004 4:35 pm

I have a Border's gift card and I was just thinking that I would go use it to buy Moneyball so I have something to read while I wait for school to start.

Is Moneyball a good read?

Hehe, am I a fool for not reading it already?

You can't read it and not like the A's. Even Madison.

Lol. :-D

I like the A's just fine and I'm a little jealous of their pitching. Actually, I'm very jealous of their pitching. Lol. :-b

There is a difference in liking a team, and a team winning though. ;-)

How many pages is it? Someone reccommended it to me just this week. It sounds similar to Bleachers as far as being able to read quickly

If you're reading it that fast, you're either superhuman or aren't taking it in. It's a couple hundred pages of pure genius. ;-D
