#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.

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.
Intrigue and Meat
Enough technical meat to keep my mind turning and involved and enough plot to make my arm hairs stand on end at the end.
