Book Summary

In Flash Boys Michael Lewis takes on Wall Street with an incredible story of how high frequency traders using super fast computer networks are rigging the whole stock market. I remember when this book came out and the uproar it caused and if you read this book you won’t be disappointed on some of the things uncovered. Whether you agree with the conclusions in this book or not Lewis does an excellent job of explaining how high frequency trading works and how one might take advantage of the system.
