The Economics of Soccer

You may have heard of "Moneyball," Michael Lewis' story of how sabermetrics penetrated baseball's top management. If soccer is more your game, take a look at "Soccernomics" (2009) by Simon Kuper and Stefan Szymanski. Kuper, a sports journalist and Szymanski, an economist, provide a highly readable account of the economics of soccer, and incidentally illustrate how to think about the effective use of numbers in understanding and managing any field.
