Descripción Three Rivers Press, 2012. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The closest thing to Freakonomics I've seen since the original. A rare combination of terrific storytelling and unconventional thinking. I love this book." - Steven D. Levitt , Alvin H. Baum Professor of Economics, University of Chicago, and co-author of Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics "I love this book. If I told you why, the NBA would fine me again." - Mark Cuban , owner of the Dallas Mavericks " Scorecasting is both scholarly and entertaining, a rare double. It gets beyond the cliched narratives and tried-but-not-necessarily-true assumptions to reveal significant and fascinating truths about sports." - Bob Costas "A counterintuitive, innovative, unexpected handbook for sports fans interested in the truths that underpin our favorite games. With their lively minds and prose, Moskowitz and Wertheim will change the way you think about and watch sports. Not just for stats nerds, Scorecasting enlightens and entertains. I wish I had thought of it!" - Jeremy Schaap , ESPN reporter, Author of Cinderella Man. "(Sports + numbers) x great writing = winning formula. A must read for all couch analysts." - Richard Thaler , Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics, best-selling author of Nudge . " Scorecasting will change the way you watch sports, but don't start reading it during a game; you're liable to get lost in it and miss the action. I'm not giving anything away because you'll want to read exactly how they arrived at their conclusions." -Allen Barra , NJ Star Ledger "Like Moneyball and Soccernomics before it, Scorecasting crunches the numbers to challenge notions that have been codified into conventional sports wisdom." - Wired Magazine " Freakonomics meets Moneyball " - The Wall Street Journal From the Hardcover edition.

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Scorecasting, University of Chicago behavioral economist Tobias Moskowitz teams up with veteran Sports Illustrated writer L. Jon Wertheim to overturn some of the most cherished truisms of sports, and reveal the hidden forces that shape how basketball, baseball, football, and hockey games are played, won and lost. Drawing from Moskowitz s original research, as well as studies from fellow economists such as bestselling author Richard Thaler, the authors look at: the influence home-field advantage has on the outcomes of games in all sports and why it exists; the surprising truth about the universally accepted axiom that defense wins championships; the subtle biases that umpires exhibit in calling balls and strikes in key situations; the unintended consequences of referees tendencies in every sport to swallow the whistle, and more. Among the insights that Scorecasting reveals: Why Tiger Woods is prone to the same mistake in high-pressure putting situations that you and I areWhy professional teams routinely overvalue draft picks The myth of momentum or the hot hand in sports, and why so many fans, coaches, and broadcasters fervently subscribe to itWhy NFL coaches rarely go for a first down on fourth-down situations--even when their reluctance to do so reduces their chances of winning.In an engaging narrative that takes us from the putting greens of Augusta to the grid iron of a small parochial high school in Arkansas, Scorecasting will forever change how you view the game, whatever your favorite sport might be.
