Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt

Michael Lewis
#1 New York Times Bestseller — With a new Afterword"Guaranteed to make blood boil." —Janet Maslin, New York TimesIn 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.

Yet another view into all pervasive, 360-degree surround sound American corruption. Detailed (enough) but easy going, interesting and informative. I especially enjoyed the aspects of the abstract technical becoming human: move my server to the east side of the room, the race for microseconds along fibre optic lines.

AND this was, I think, missed in the aftermath of the 2008 financial disaster.

Worth reading.
