Opis produktu

Ben Mezrich is the New York Times bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires and Bringing Down the House in addition to many other books both fiction and nonfiction. The major motion picture 21 starring Kevin Spacey was based on Bringing Down the House. The Oscarwinning film The Social Network was adapted from The Accidental Billionaires. Mezrich lives in Boston with his wife and son.Real life all too rarely offers stories that are quite as satisfying as fiction. Bringing Down the House is one of the exceptions: a reallife action thriller oozing with money sex and some extremely dodgy dealing... Cheating in casinos is illegal: cardcounting making a record of what cards have so far been dealt to enable the player to make some prediction of what cards remain in the deck is not. But casinos understandably dislike the practice and make every effort to keep cardcounters out of their premises. Bringing Down the House tells the true story of the most successful financial scam ever in which teams of brilliant young mathematicians and physicists won millions of dollars from the casinos and blackjack tables of Las Vegas in the process getting drawn into the high life of drugs sex and spending big. Bringing Down the House is as readable and as fascinating as Liars Poker or Barbarians At the Gate an insight into a closed excessive and utterly corrupt world of gambling in Las Vegas.A gripping reallife financial action thriller telling the story of a brilliant team of MIT students who won millions of dollars in Las Vegas. Oceans Eleven but for real.Adapted into the box office hit heist drama film 21 starring Kevin Spacey and Kate Bosworth.... Bringing Down the House is a cantmiss dealA surreal cacophony of glamour suspense and eventually terror. Part Tom Clancy part Elmore Leonard...GrippingThe tale laid out in Bringing Down the House is so beguiling so agreeably reminiscent of say Oceans Eleven or House of Games that you find yourself mentally casting the parts as you read along... A fine yarn Sunday TimesA lively tale that could pass for thriller fiction ... Mezrichs skilled yet easy writing draws sweat to the readers browBringing Down the House has a sensational story to tellONE It was ten minutes past three in the morning and Kevin Lewis looked like he was about to pass out. There were three empty martini glasses on the table in front of him and he was leaning forward on both elbows his gaze focused on his cards. The dealer was still feigning patience in deference to the pile of purple chips in front of the martini glasses. But the other players were beginning to get restless. They wanted the kid to make his bet already or pack it in grab the ratty duffel bag under his chair and head back to Boston. Hell hadnt he won enough? What was a college senior going to do with thirty thousand dollars? The dealer sensing the mood at the table finally tapped the blackjack shoe. Its up to you Kevin. Youve had a hell of a run. Are you in for another round?
