Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions by Ben Mezrich
Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions

aloof, March 4, 2008

i'm buying this book. but i'm irritated that a clip from the movie is there. i know you have to sell the book, but the movie is super offensive. in real life, all those kids were asian. it's a true story. and their being asian affected their ability to pull off the card counting (as in, if they weren't asian, it wouldn't have worked as well), so it's not a trivial detail. not that it would be anyway. when are they going to start making movies about real white people and making the characters asian?
