<strong>A candid autobiography from the famously reclusive Oakland Athletics owner during the pivotal Moneyball era.</strong><br /><br />As the owner of the Oakland A&#39;s during the 1990s and early 2000s, Steve Schott fostered a front office culture of experimentation, risk, and autonomy that ultimately changed the course of modern baseball. As a founder of Citation Builders, he has been responsible for the construction of over 40,000 individual residences in the state of California.<br /><br /><em>Long Schott</em> is a story about unlikely victories, from that feisty A&#39;s squad that rallied for a historic 20-game win streak to the booming California real estate market and beyond.<br /><br /><strong>Co-authored by renowned <em>San Francisco Chronicle</em> baseball writer John Shea, this is a fascinating business story encompassing humble beginnings, unprecedented success, and the many lessons learned along the way.</strong>
