📒In Pursuit Of Pennants ✍ Mark L. Armour
📝In Pursuit of Pennants Book Synopsis : The 1936 Yankees, the 1963 Dodgers, the 1975 Reds, the 2010 Giants—why do some baseball teams win while others don’t? General managers and fans alike have pondered this most important of baseball questions. The Moneyball strategy is not the first example of how new ideas and innovative management have transformed the way teams are assembled. In Pursuit of Pennants examines and analyzes a number of compelling, winning baseball teams over the past hundred-plus years, focusing on their decision making and how they assembled their championship teams. Whether through scouting, integration, instruction, expansion, free agency, or modernizing their management structure, each winning team and each era had its own version of Moneyball, where front office decisions often made the difference. Mark L. Armour and Daniel R. Levitt show how these teams succeeded and how they relied on talent both on the field and in the front office. While there is no recipe for guaranteed success in a competitive, ever-changing environment, these teams demonstrate how creatively thinking about one’s circumstances can often lead to a competitive advantage.

📒Moneyball ✍ Michael Lewis
📝Moneyball Book Synopsis : The funniest, smartest, and most contrarian book since -- well, since Lewis's Liar's Poker, Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. After mining all the obvious possibilities, Lewis was left with the mystery of how the Oakland Athletics, one of the poorest teams in baseball, won so many games. Here he records how general manager Billy Beane -- alone among Major League managers -- paid attention to some very humble statistics in order to find and field a team that nobody else wanted on the second-lowest payroll in baseball.

📒The Cardinals Way ✍ Howard Megdal
📝The Cardinals Way Book Synopsis : The St. Louis Cardinals have experienced the kind of success that is rare in baseball. Regarded by many as the premier organization in Major League Baseball, they not only win, but do so with an apparently bottomless pool of talent, one that is mostly homegrown. Despite years of phenomenal achievements, including going to the World Series in 2004 and again in 2006, the Cardinals reinvented themselves using the "Cardinal Way," a term that has come to represent many things to fans, media, and other organizations, from an ironclad code of conduct to the team's cutting-edge use of statistic and analytics, and a farm system that has transformed baseball. Baseball journalist Howard Megdal takes fans behind the scenes and off the field, interviewing dozens of key players within the Cardinals organization, including owner Bill DeWitt and the general manager John Mozeliak. Megdal reveals how the players are assessed and groomed using an unrivaled player development system that has created a franchise that is the envy of the baseball world. In the spirit of Moneyball, The Cardinals Way tells an in-depth, fascinating story about a consistently good franchise, the business of sports in the twenty-first century and a team that has learned how to level the playing field, turning in season after successful season.

📒Hitting The Moneyball Into The Luxury Box ✍ Christopher Loggia
📝Hitting the Moneyball Into the Luxury Box Book Synopsis : This paper aims to determine if utilizing Moneyball roster management tactics improves the revenue generation and profitability of a franchise from a franchise owner's perspective. Ultimately, if a baseball team makes a specific effort to utilize Moneyball tactics, would the overall value of the franchise improve. All data is sourced from historical Major League Baseball statistics over eighteen seasons from 1997 to 2014. The analysis includes the creation of a new player valuation model by analyzing the career average Z-score to salary efficiency ratio. The analysis will test the relationship between a number of variables, but largely between the Z-score to salary ratio and total annual fan attendance and the Z-score to salary ratio and total annual revenue. The study found that by using a standard linear regression, there is a positive relationship between the Z-score to salary efficiency ratio with each of annual attendance and annual revenue. However, there is no relationship between the Z-score to salary ratio and winning percentage. Additionally, by using a forced constant regression, there are no positive relationships between the Z-score to salary ratio to any of annual attendance, revenue or winning percentage.

📒The Undoing Project ✍ Michael Lewis
📝The Undoing Project Book Synopsis : 'Michael Lewis could spin gold out of any topic he chose ... his best work ... vivid, original and hard to forget' Tim Harford, Financial Times 'Gripping ... There is war, heroism, genius, love, loss, discovery, enduring loyalty and friendship. It is epic stuff ... Michael Lewis is one of the best non-fiction writers of our time' Irish Times From Michael Lewis, No.1 bestselling author of The Big Short and Flash Boys, this is the extraordinary story of the two men whose ideas changed the world. Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky met in war-torn 1960s Israel. Both were gifted young psychology professors: Kahneman a rootless son of holocaust survivors who saw the world as a problem to be solved; Tversky a voluble, instinctual blur of energy. In this breathtaking new book, Michael Lewis tells the extraordinary story of a relationship that became a shared mind: one which created the field of behavioural economics, revolutionising everything from Big Data to medicine, from how we are governed to how we spend, from high finance to football. Kahneman and Tversky, shows Michael Lewis, helped shape the world in which we now live - and may well have changed, for good, humankind's view of its own mind. 'A brilliant writer ... the book is a masterclass' Steven Poole, Spectator 'A new book by Michael Lewis promises an absorbing story, dazzling ideas, journalistic flair and originality. He achieves this with extraordinary consistency. In The Undoing Project he has achieved it again' Daniel Finkelstein, The Times
📒Evidence Based Applied Sport Psychology ✍ Roland A. Carlstedt, PhD
📝Evidence Based Applied Sport Psychology Book Synopsis : This is the first book to call for a major paradigm shift in applied sport psychology by providing a wealth of systematic, scientifically validated research in a field where assessment and treatment has often been haphazard. In his quest to bring sport psychology to a higher level of validity, Dr. Carlstedt describes the most current assessment methods, intervention procedures, and promising research that are critical for use in evidence-based practice. These assessment and treatment methods are based on 25 years of rigorous scientific approaches and principles that incorporate the most sophisticated research methods now available. The book describes the mechanisms that influence peak performance or psychological performance deficits and the mental training process, and provides procedures that will take the guesswork out of typical assessment and mental training. It offers tools with which practitioners can reexamine their modus operandi and critically explore the mechanism of interaction outcomes. To this end, the book includes extensive data sets on personality, behavioral tendencies, mind-body responses, and performance outcome. Dr. Carlstedt advocates moving beyond compartmentalized therapeutic sessions in the office to directly observe athletic performance during training and actual competition. The text also contains individual and team case studies to enhance its focus on individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete. Key Features: Presents a detailed client-centered assessment and intervention model grounded in technology-supported, step-by-step procedures, followed by efficacy testing Focuses on the importance of empirical scrutiny and individualized, efficacy-tested protocols for each individual athlete Describes the Carlstedt Protocol containing a visualization efficiency test among many other technologically based assessment and training tools Provides a roadmap for achieving a gold-standard system of accountability Practitioners will learn how to work within Carlstedt's integrative model to improve athlete performance and contribute to the advancement of evidence-based applied sport psychology.
