Professional reviews

"This account of the MIT nerds who (legally!) beat the Vegas casinos out of millions gilds the lily by overdramatizing an already fascinating true story. Thank goodness narrator Heller pulls in the opposite direction to restore some equilibrium. He was obviously cast for his youthful voice, but he also provides an intelligent, contained interpretation. The mix of tabloid writing and Apollonian delivery works particularly well. A tasty snack of a listen. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
