Master storyteller Ben Mezrich takes you from the ivory towers of ì academia to the Technicolor world of Las Vegas, where anything ì can happen -- and often does. Bringing Down the House launches ì you into the seedy underworld of corporate Vegas -- deep into the ì realm of back rooms, ever-present video cameras, private ì investigators, and the threats and tactics of pit bosses and ì violent heavies. Equipped with twenty different aliases and ì disguises, the group of young card counters struggles around ì these roadblocks to live the high life -- until one fateful day ì when Vegas violently follows them home to Boston. Suddenly, there ì can be no more hiding behind false identities; the high life ì folds like a bad hand of cards.
Filled with tense action and incredibly close calls, Bringing ì Down the House is a real-life mix of Liar's Poker and Ocean's ì Eleven -- and it's a story Vegas doesn't want you to read.
