Stonking Good Read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fantasyland: A Season on Baseball's Lunatic Fringe (Hardcover)
If the premise, 'its a book about drafting a fantasy baseball team', leaves you cold, prepare to be amazed. This book absolutely had me gripped from start to finish, as sports columnist Sam Walker figures his inside knowledge should give him a good chance in the elite of the elite fantasy leagues Tout Wars. Its Moneyball with laughs, as Sam realises that being able to buttonhole gm's and get access to players will not get the job done, he enlists help, embraces statistical analysis by a Nasa specialist, and so much more. Best and most original book I have read this year.
