Book 38 of 52 -- Ben Mezrich's Bringing Down the House
This is a great story and the writing stands up to the quality of the story itself.
It leads the reader through the rise and ultimate fall of a team that approaches Blackjack as if it were a sport that can be trained for and mastered rather than a game of chance.
Could have given greater perspective on those who developed the card counting methods that the MIT team built upon, but that's just a nit pick.
Read this book if you have any affinity to playing games!
