House of Cards

I just finished reading Bringing Down the House by Ben Mezrich, a story of a group of MIT students who figured out an effective and efficient way of winning at casino blackjack and won millions.  I read it on a recommendation from Meghan, and I have to thank her for that.  It was an easy, entertaining read with a good storyline and fascinating background.  The writing isn’t the greatest prose in the history of literature, but it is easy to read and the topic is so interesting that it easily holds your attention.

The drama that arises at the end of the story makes it particularly interesting and worth the read.  If you like playing blackjack (or even poker), or enjoy going to casinos, this is worth your time.
