Bill James made his journalistic mark in the 1970s and 1980s with his bestseller Baseball Abstracts. His unique insight and talent for crunching numbers in unique ways blew open a whole new way of looking at the world. He is credited for setting the stage for others who combine maths with great narrative, such as Malcolm Gladwell. He is currently the Senior Advisor on Baseball Operations for the Boston Red Sox and lives in Kansas, with his wife and three children.
