Yes, it took me a very long time to read Moneyball, but I think the intervening years add something in terms of perspective. I first became a serious baseball fan in 2003, when this book was published. Many of the players' names are familiar to me, and from a ten year remove I have the liberty of being able to see who has faded into obscurity, and whose names are still well-known today. The audio version, for some reason, cuts off before the last chapter and the epilogue, reminding me once again not to both with anything abridged. But after listening/reading to the book, I see what the fuss is about, and I'd be interested to read more by Lewis.
