BUSTING VEGAS The MIT Whiz Kid Who Brought the Casinos to Their Knees

by | Read by Ben Mezrich

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

The narrative drive that moves this audio along is the true story of a team, assembled by an MIT math whiz, that used three complicated techniques to tilt blackjack odds in their favor and win a pile of money. The accomplished writer of this fascinating story has a previous book on gambling strategies, as well as some well-received fictional titles. His attention to setting and nuance of behavior are vivid and immediate; they rivet the listener to a story line that’s already as fascinating as any you’ll hear. As narrator, the author is likable and easy to listen to. His brief interview at the book’s end is a bonus for anyone interested in the writer’s craft.
