really liked it
Read in September, 2011

I'm not sure what the difference is between this book and Mezrich's "Bringing Down the House" ( ) as they both focus on MIT students who use probability and memorization to win at Vegas card games. Judging by the Wikipedia entry for "Bringing," I'm not sure how much of "Busting" I should believe. Even if the story was completely made up, it's a fun read, seeing nerds trying to pay for college playing make-believe (every member of the blackjack "team" had a different disguise for each casino they hit) and winning against "the house."
