Moneyball – the movie


Michael Lewis has written a series of excellent books, starting with Liar’s Poker, which lifted the lid on the investment banking game in general and Salomon Brothers in particular.  His book Moneyball was a fascinating study of baseball and business, and has been turned into a movie starring Brad Pitt (which seems a bit unlikely) in the role of Billy Beene, the Oakland A’s GM.

Excellent reviews over at Rotten Tomatoes (currently 94%).  Trailer link is below.
