I really enjoyed this book, although I may also be the target demographic. I am already a sabermetric convert, and I'm not totally sure it would convert someone who thinks otherwise, especially with the somewhat confrontational tone from time to time. Extremely well researched, and it did make me wonder about different parts of the game, and question what I knew and understood about baseball. Lots of interesting ideas - Kenny is definitely not afraid to poke the baseball establishment. Enjoyable read, I would recommend to baseball enthusiasts!
