Ben Mezrich graduated magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991. Since then he has published twelve books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Accidental Billionaires, which was adapted into the Academy Award-winning film The Social Network, and Bringing Down the House, which has sold more than 1.5 million copies in twelve languages and became the basis for the Kevin Spacey movie 21. Mezrich has also published the national bestsellers Sex on the Moon, Ugly Americans, Rigged, and Busting Vegas. He lives in Boston.
I guess what really blows me away is how the book never gets a hold of your attention.
I was disappointed considering Mezrich's "Bringing Down the House" is one of the most exciting books I have ever read.
I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1, because 1 star is reserved for books that I can't bear to finish.
The cover of this book looks great. Like it's some nonstop action type of real life thriller. The reality is this book was pretty bad. BAD. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Good Man named Mike

I found the book to be insightful and interesting. I had trouble putting it down. If there were ever a book that would make a great movie, it would be "Rigged."Published 10 months ago by Paul P. Marin
Worth the buy. Loved it. Great pace, clever design, vivid characters and the usual rags to riches hustle we love. Another Mezrich success!Published 12 months ago by Sway01
