Love sports, love math?
If so, I recommend reading Mathletics: How Gamblers, Managers, and Sports Enthusiasts Use Mathematics in Baseball, Basketball, and Football. While Money Ball was a great story, it lacked the math and ideas that someone could implement. Mathletics is the converse.
The author, Wayne Winston, was one of my favorite professors and has a knack for looking at new ways to quantify things and is happy to share those ideas.
