Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt is a riveting exposition of the practice of high-frequency trading on Wall Street. Michael Lewis' writing not only makes these complex financial practices easy to understand, he spins the technical elements into an absolutely riveting account of a world where even buildings' proximity to physical internet cables matters-an advantage of a fraction of second. This is the story of what happened when small group realized that the U.S. stock market was rigged for the benefits of insiders-and then worked to investigate, expose, and reform the ways that Wall Street generates profits.
