Publisher Description

#1 New York Times Bestseller — With a new Afterword

"Guaranteed to make blood boil." —Janet Maslin, New York Times

In Michael Lewis's game-changing bestseller, a small group of Wall Street iconoclasts realize that the U.S. stock market has been rigged for the benefit of insiders. They band together—some of them walking away from seven-figure salaries—to investigate, expose, and reform the insidious new ways that Wall Street generates profits. If you have any contact with the market, even a retirement account, this story is happening to you.

Flash Book

This book is uneven and begs for a sequel, but it is timely and rings true and has to be read. Many negative reviews seem to be based on excerpts published in the New York Times Sunday Magazine. The full book answers many of the criticisms. It is really a story about remarkable people and not an ideological screed. That story may often be hard to follow in the many threads being juggled, but is one needing to be told and heard.

This is a real thriller...

Once again, in a masterful way, Michael Lewis reduces an arcane technology, high frequency trading, to something not only understandable but frankly fascinating. This book is as much a page-turner as any thriller. I could not put it down. Highly recommended.

I work in the markets

Pretty well written. Lewis is an easy read and I always enjoy his style and story-telling. Don't expect this to cover everything about HFT or go too in depth, but he really does a great job of giving all types of readers a stronger understanding of how the market really works against investors. Through his characters they give a fair assessment of the pros and cons of HFT while also talking about the systemic problems built into exchanges and bank dark pools.

Worth your money.
