He's the anti-fark guy, with tons of info and knowing how to converse without putting Anthony to sleep.

Here's his site btw:

I've read a couple of his books and they were great. I heard bits and pieces of the interview today, can't wait for the replay to hear the whole thing. This guy rocks.

I read two of his books and thought they were pretty good. I'm contemplating reading the new one. He talks WAY too much and interrupted a lot, but he was a really interesting guest. He's no Mike Rowe :(

Even though in the beginning it didnt seem that promising. He was quite captivating.

Mike Rowe shouldn't be compared to anyone, that man is in a league of his own.

I thought this guy was fucking awesome, I was drawn into every story he told. I haven't read any of his books yet, but tomorrow I'm going to pick one up. I think I'm gonna start with Rigged and then read Bringing Down The House. He was an excellent guest and I hope he comes on in the future.

Interesting but interrupting, too. Settle down, you'll have plenty of time to talk. Let Op finish a sentence. He's the designated interrupter, not the guest.

it was particularly great segment, but then.... some of the o and a show's best stuff is when they are discussing phenomenons, conspiracies or people somehow beating the system.

I'd love to look into something simple business plan that has yet to get going in Dubai...like the american entrepreneurs who sell simple american products like Crest and Tide in china as luxury brands and made a lot of money doing so.

talk radio, perhaps?

I think he is a great guest and someone that the average listener can identify with. But instead of dreaming it, he lives out these awesome-yet-fucked up adventures.
Ben Mezrich is a "good boy".

An amazing guest!

I read Busting Vegas a year or so ago... great stuff!

Now, I am going to read the rest of his books, thanks to the show.

I think he was interrupting man, because he's used to getting cut-off on other shows.

The best part of the interview was him asking Ant about his blackjack, he seemed truly interested in Ant's stories and did a nice job interviewing him.

One thing he said about UAE is it's truly one of our allies in the Middle East. The same could be said of non-hostile Saudi Arabia. All of the terrorists on 9/11 were from UAE and Saudi Arabia.

I think Ant is on to something with the paying off of Al Queda by the Sheik there.
