Author: Ben Mezrich, Johnny Heller (Narrator)
Real-life all too rarely offers stories that are quite as satisfying as fiction.  This is one of the exceptions.

This is an exciting read and an interesting study of human nature, as the students organize their "club" and the winning (at first) is all about beating the house. Very quickly their dependance on the money brought in by their new venture takes the competition in a new and scary direction.

Riveting!

A thoroughly-entertaining real-life how-to on beating the casinos at their own game (NOTE: many of the techniques used here may no longer work -- casino owners know how to read books, too). The authors made millions all across the country, then told this tale. Wow.

The book was so much better than the movie...but aren't they always!
I highly recommend this book. It's a good read and well written. Plus, you get the tips on how to count cards....if you're daring enough to try it...
