FT07 - Getting Crazy With Ben Mezrich

Posted by Mitch Joel on October 31, 2007

Welcome to episode #7 of Foreword Thinking – The Business and Motivational Book Review Podcast presented by HarperCollins Canada. Ben Mezrich leads a pretty amazing life, and we can all live vicariously through him. As the author of Rigged and Bringing Down The House, Ben brings a very unique style to his nonfiction work. The facts are intermingled with messages of ethics, morals and how the young (with too much money) see the world. Either way, your brain will shake with amazement. Enjoy the conversation…
