Reviews

"Engrossing. ... I can't wait for the movie."--Boston Globe
"The reigning cowboy of creative nonfiction."--The Oregonian
"A near-perfect specimen of pulp nonfiction."--New York Times
"The action is nonstop. ... Mezrich follows [the] friends from their University of Montana frat house to Costa Rica and Canada as the young entrepreneurs' extravagant lifestyle of booze, fast cars, and hot women spirals into death threats, auto accidents, 24-hour bodyguards, and federal indictments."--Booklist
"A breakneck retelling of how a bunch of closely knit fraternity brothers built an online poker empire. ... Fast-paced and wild."--Kirkus Reviews
