Fun. Probably more fun if you know how baseball works

3 stars

I have enjoyed some of the author's past books and this is more of the same: A fairly complex political/economic system being explained in some detail, highlighting the clever ideas and tricks come up with by some clever people to circumvent it/get an edge. The only problem this time is that it focused on baseball, which I know only the very basics of (certainly not all of the lingo they seem to have). Still very fun, but I'd recommend going to the more purely economic titles, like "Flash Boys" or "The big short" first.
