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.

As usual the build up is as good as any other titles from the author but get boring as you expect a climax that never really comes....Published 13 months ago by tejant
Interesting format, a novel approach. Would have preferred a little less concentration on dramatic landscaping and more on the actual development of thee political intrigues that... Read morePublished 14 months ago by John Lazootin
