Not the most exciting reading, but a painless way to come to grips with lots of new and useful baseball statistics. The author tries to spice things up with a lame joke in each chapter, which was a wasted effort--except for the mention of Edwin Starr. More of a reference book than anything else.

every sub-chapter an new story why the old metrics need updating. the new names, however get too confusing for the regular baseball fan. and ... too many require the huge computer investment to collect the data on each pitch, ball in play, to relate to high-school, college play.

If you love baseball and want a richer understanding of sabermetrics, this is the book for you! The author clearly explains the many new methods for measuring the effectiveness of baseball players in all positions. The tone is chatty and genuinely excited, welcoming to all fans. If you're new to sabermetrics, you'll be able to follow Castrovince's explanations. If you're already hooked on sabermetrics, you'll learn details and nuances that will enrich your understanding of the game. Keep this title in mind when you need the perfect gift for the baseball fans in your life—young or old, newbies or sophisticates.

I received a free electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via EdelweissPlus. The opinions are my own.
