Review: Mezrich’s Ugly Americans

One of many reviews I wrote for an old livejournal account. Now archived here.

Ugly Americans: The True Story of the Ivy League Cowboys Who Raided the Asian Markets for Millions

Ben Mezrich

Trashy trash. Not only trashy – horrible. I am embarrassed to say I read it and if you’ve been paying attention around here, you know that’s saying something.The worst money-porn elite bro bullshit I’ve ever read. If you want the better of Mezrich’s trashy tell all jack –ass Ivy kids doing stupid shit routine, check out Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions. Its much better.
Not Recommended.
