Reviews

"Fascinating...reads like a mash up of Liar's Poker and Moneyball."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] swaggering story from frantic stock trader to professional sports bettor....Even casual baseball fans could learn from it. Serious fans should slurp it up like ballpark beer."--Los Angeles Times "He reminds me of Nate Silver--he's able to blend different worlds (in this case, baseball and finance) using his intense knowledge of each to give us a very entertaining read."--Play-by-Play Announcer for the San Francisco Giants and ESPN National Sportscaster Dave Flemming "Peta created a reliable system for beating Vegas odds throughout the 2011 Major League season...but it's clear he loves the game as much as the winnings. Moreover, he asks a number of salient questions, such as: How can businesses on Wall Street and beyond apply thinking used by baseball sabermetricians to strengthen their own organizations? The answers, and how Peta arrived at them, make for great reading."--Booklist
