The long-runningNew York Timesbestseller that has become a cultural phenomenon,Bringing Down the Houseis an action-filled caper carried out by the unlikeliest of cons -- supersmart geeks. Gambling pervaded the M.I.T. campus, and genius kids with money and glittering futures were just as likely to be found in a Paradise Island casino as in the school library. A highly elite group of mathletes was recruited to join The Club, a small, secret blackjack organization dedicated to counting cards and beating the major casinos across the nation at their own game. As a successful ring of card savants, backed by a mysterious ringleader and shadowy investors, they infiltrated Vegas and won millions.TheBoston Heraldacclaimed it as "a suspenseful tale that portrays the players as Davids going up against Goliaths." And Bill Simmons ofESPNmagazine exclaimed, "This book made me want to gamble! Vegas! Vegas!" Filled with tense action, high stakes, and incredibly close calls,Bringing Down the Houseis a nail-biting chronicle of a real-lifeOcean's Eleven. It's one story that Vegas does not want you to read.
