I grew up in Charlotte and at the time of the heist still had family in the area so I was able to follow the story by proxy when it came to light. It is the story of mentally challenged amateurs who have one incredibly lucky day and spend the rest of the time that they're free acting like; well acting like mentally challenged amateurs. It's not a bad listen despite numerous mispronunciations by the narrator and it's certainly a unique story.

Great read (listen). So goofy seems more like fiction. The writer, being a journalist, does a great job of presenting and keeping the multiple threads of the story clear. At the same time, he gives each of the players life and actually makes them sympathetic - albeit comic - characters.
I got this book after watching the not so good movie (Masterminds) on the subject. This was surprisingly because I'm a big fan of Zach Galifianakis. This book is very easy to follow and entertaining. I highly recommend it. It gives the reader all of the details and the real story behind the heist, which is actually much more entertaining than the fictionalised account in the film.
