#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.

    I manage Futures and Futures Options for a living and do not deal in equities, but enjoyed Lewis’ literary discussion of HFT and how IEX evolved. I think everyone will have reasons to downgrade the book and reasons to promote it. For those looking for intricacies of order types and different HFT arbitrage this is not a technical or typical investment/analysis book. There are some interesting characters, but it doesn’t rise to the level of an intriguing thriller either. It was a great read while doing cardio at the gym.

    Enough technical meat to keep my mind turning and involved and enough plot to make my arm hairs stand on end at the end.
  • Total Page Turner

    I love Michael Lewis’s writing. I purchased this book hesitantly as the topic did not seem interesting. I was hooked on the first page. Beware, this is a page turner. You will not be able to put it down.

    Thought is was good, but not great. HFT is not the biggest problem for mom and pop. Wall Street and banks get away with murder. Anyone else would be in jail. The book fails to finish strong.
  • Thank you!

    Thank you for writing on this topic, your an American hero for brining this to light. Thank you to the guys at IEX for having the courage to find your own way, a way that is fair and ethical.
  • Lewis's best yet

    All of the above. Reads better than a thriller. One of the most enthralling books to catch my attention in a while. Let the HFT witch hunt begin!
  • Lewis fails

    One sided, poorly researched, felt rushed and story lines don't flow. Parts of the book were already published in vanity fair. Usually a fan of his work. Overall a disappointment, don't waste your time.
  • Fascinating & Illuminating

    Read this book. It will strike at the heart of what you think you know about our entire economic system. It contains incredible detail and genius prose. Thank you again Michael Lewis! Well done
  • Brilliant work, reads like a spy thriller

    I picked this after seeing the Charley Rose interview. I couldn't stop reading it and was amazed at the level of insidious greed in the HFT's. If you invest, read this before you buy another stock. You are paying a "speed tax" to a bunch of people that will risk crashing the entire system so they can scam others.
