Moneyball reveals a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can´t buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of Major League teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win.... How can we not cheer for David? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/002719/bk_rand_002719_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

I wrote this book because I fell in love with a story.´´ But the idea for the book came well before I had good reason to write it - before I had a story to fall in love with. It began, really, with an innocent question: how did one of the poorest teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics, win so many games? With these words Michael Lewis launches us into the funniest, smartest, and most contrarian book since, well, since Liar´s Poker. Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can´t buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the front offices of major league teams, and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers and physics professors. These numbers prove that the traditional yardsticks of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. This information has been around for years, and nobody paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland Athletics. Billy paid attention to those numbers, and this book records his astonishing experiment in finding and fielding a team that nobody else wanted. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Michael Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win...how can we not cheer for David? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lewis.

Moneyball is a quest for the secret of success in baseball. Following the low-budget Oakland Athletics, their larger-than-life general manger, Billy Beane, and the strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts, Michael Lewis has written not only ´´the single most influential baseball book ever´´ (Rob Neyer, Slate) but also what ´´may be the best book ever written on business´´ (Weekly Standard). I wrote this book because I fell in love with a story. The story concerned a small group of undervalued professional baseball players and executives, many of whom had been rejected as unfit for the big leagues, who had turned themselves into one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball. But the idea for the book came well before I had good reason to write it-before I had a story to fall in love with. It began, really, with an innocent question: how did one of the poorest teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics, win so many games? With these words Michael Lewis launches us into the funniest, smartest, and most contrarian book since, well, since Liar´s Poker. Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can´t buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the front offices of major league teams, and the dugouts, perhaps even in the minds of the players themselves. Lewis mines all these possibilities-his intimate and original portraits of big league ballplayers are alone worth the price of admission-but the real jackpot is a cache of numbers-numbers!-collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers and physics professors. What these geek numbers show-no, prove-is that the traditional yardsticks of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. Even the box score misleads us by ignoring the crucial importance of the humble base-on-balls. This information has been around for years, and nobody inside Major League Baseball paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland Athletics. Billy paid attention to those numbers -with the second lowest payroll in baseball at his disposal he had to-and this book records his astonishing experiment in finding and fielding a team that nobody else wanted. Moneyball is a roller coaster ride: before the 2002 season opens, Oakland must relinquish its three most prominent (and expensive) players, is written off by just about everyone, and then comes roaring back to challenge the American League record for consecutive wins. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Michael Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win... how can we not cheer for David?

This spare, mesmerizing novel is Edith Wharton´s money-can´t-buy-happiness tale. Young Stephen Glennard, a lawyer, is poor, but he has an unanticipated gambling chip: a collection of love letters from a scorned, but now famous, lover, the distinguished novelist Margaret Aubyn. To raise money for his forthcoming wedding to another woman, Stephen stoops to selling the letters. His decision brings him wealth and admission to society, but a mystery contained in the missives comes back to haunt him, and it may take the madness of guilt to remind Stephen that he does, after all, have a conscience.Betrayal, greed, and consequences faced make this sly, masterful story a deft social and psychological portrait that stands with Wharton´s best. 1.

Xero knows what she wants: absolute rule over Southern Arizona, a cure for the superbug that´s killing her best friend, and a decent bar of soap. Some are easier to get than others. The dreaded Zaps are dissolving Trina´s lungs, and only a rare medication can save her. No problem: Xero is an expert smuggler. As the ruler of the Tucson Exiles, she hustles supplies for the government and then pumps the desert full of illegal designer drugs on the sly.

How to Suffer ... in 10 Easy Steps: Discover, E...

Almost every self-help book seems to be about how to be happy but what about recognizing and accepting that we suffer? In this, the ultimate guide on how to suffer, you will discover how to go from suffering in silence to suffering in style, showing you how to walk the peaceful pathway from regret to acceptance and embrace. Almost every self-help book seems to be about how to be happy, how to be empowered, how to be in a fabulous relationship, how to make a million ... in other words, how to be anything other than the inevitably suffering human beings most of us are. (At least at some point in our lives!). Taking the exact opposite tack, award-winning author, filmmaker, and self-made millionaire William Arntz has chosen the surprising and frequently comical approach to self-help by teaching people how to suffer. We all experience suffering, so why fight it? Better to embrace it, understand it and learn to walk the path in harmony. Better to understand the steps we take to arrive at suffering than to pretend they are not there. Perhaps, in the recognition of those steps, we might stand a chance of escaping. From the Suffering Cycle and how to construct your very own Sufferometer, to the nature of earthly duality (which guarantees suffering). The book reveals the things we all do that create earthly angst and misery (no matter how much money we make or how amazing our love life is) - all of it set forth with sly, tongue-in-cheek humour that takes the sting, if not the truth, out of Will´s suffering formula.
