Read Moneyball

Moneyball by Michael Lewis is about sabermetrics, the science of using statistics to actually figure out what's important in a baseball player, and then putting together a team based on undervalued skills. It's a great book, but unfortunately, it seems that by writing the book, Lewis has actually hurt the ability of the Oakland As to do what they were doing before: get great results with very little money.
