Staff Reviews


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.

— Justin, Atlanta
