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.
