#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.
Boldest Book Since Steyn's America Alone
This is one of the top ten books to be written this century. Don't read it at your peril.
Saw him on the a daily show
I saw the author on the daily show yesterday, bought the book and now I can't put it down. Like another reviewer said - this reads like a thriller.
And keeping in mind that non-fiction doesn't typically keep my attention long, this book is phenomenal, scary, but phenomenal, but scary.....
But I must say it's good to know there are decent people out there. The knowledge settles my soul a bit and makes me feel a tiny bit less helpless and overwhelmed by all examples of human greed and selfishness.
Good stuff. Give it a read.
