Ben Mezrich is the author of ten books, including the wildly successful Bringing Down the House, which spent fifty-nine weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List and sold over 1.5 million copies in twelve languages. His latest book, Rigged, is also a best-seller and was recently optioned as a film. Mezrich has created his own highly addictive genre of nonfiction, chronicling the amazing stories of young geniuses making tons of money on the edge of impossibility, ethics and morality. He's been named "Sexiest Author" by People Magazine and had a brief stint on Court TV with a series entitled High Stakes with Ben Mezrich. Mezrich also hosted the World Series of Blackjack for the Game Show Network. A columnist for Boston Common and a contributor to Flush Magazine in the UK, Mezrich currently has several scripted and non-scripted TV projects in the works.
