Staff Reviews


A modern-day David and Goliath tale. Brad Katsuyama had what many people regarded as an impossible dream: to create a stock exchange that gave investors a square deal. Lewis explains the emergence of the so-called high frequency traders, who rigged the financial markets to benefit the traders rather than their clients. The complex world of dark pools and fiber optic trading -- measured in increments of milliseconds -- is adroitly presented in layman's terms. — Alden Graves

Description


2015 Audie Award Finalist for Nonfiction

Michael Lewis’s game-changing bestseller is now available in Encore at a great low price.

A small group of Wall Street iconoclasts realize that the US 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.
