Interesting but Repetitive

Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games Are Won - Tobias Moskowitz, L. Jon Wertheim

Every sports fan has caught themselves yelling at a referee for a "make up call" or for being "home team refs".  Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games Won looks into the statistics behind these sports "truisms". 

 

The chapters get repetitive and frequently I found myself skimming the ends of chapters.  The book was very interesting though.  I am keeping the book because the statistics do paint an interesting picture and I may want to peruse again.
