Ben Mezrich is back to form with a new book about gambling
culture and the crazy lifestyle that surrounds it. This time Ben introduces us
to some non-Ivy League students who make it big by being the house instead of
the gambler. Fun but also important since recent state laws could be paving the
way for a resurgence of online poker.
