Ben Mezrich

Ben Mezrich has authored seventeen books of fiction and nonfiction, with a combined printing of over four million copies, including the wildly successful Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions, which spent sixty-three weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and sold over two million copies in fifteen languages. Bringing Down the House was adapted into the hit film 21. Mezrich also adapted Bringing Down the House into a novel for young readers, Bringing Down the Mouse. His book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal debuted at #4 on the New York Times list and was later adapted into the award-winning movie The Social Network, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher. Mezrich’s fiction includes the thrillers Q and Seven Wonders. His latest book is The 37th Parallel: The Secret Truth Behind America’s UFO Highway, which, according to Kirkus Reviews, “connects dots we didn’t even know existed.”
