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).
"As thorough a history of a Negro league team as can be culled from the available sources... not just the history of a team but the tale of one city in all its social complexity."
--The New York Times Book Review
An enthralling narrative about a lost era in both baseball and American History, Beyond the Shadow of the Senators reveals the true story of the greatest baseball dynasty most people have never heard of--the Homestead Grays--and how the fight to integrate our national pastime began with this team.
