Flash Boys: a Wall Street Revolt by Michael Lewis

Mike Lewis‘s latest book on the high frequency traders and their need for speed and presumed market abuse left me bored. Maybe I understand too little on the subject, maybe I care too little about robots taking advantage of nanoseconds, hard to say.

Would I recommend it? Naw, other Lewis’s books like Boomerang or The Big Short (or Liar’s Poker!) are much, much better.

But my ultimate gut feel – he understood too little and trusted too much those folks who agreed and wanted to talk to him.

Oh well, in a microsecond, this book, gone.
