By Michael Lewis
They say: In Flash Boys, Lewis tells the explosive story of a group of oddballs and misfits who set out to expose what was really going on in the markets, revealing a secret world of computer codes and black boxes, and what it's like to declare war on some of the richest and most powerful people in the world.
We say: Flash Boys is a powerful and thought-provoking narrative from a writer who knows the financial markets. It's a page turner you won't be able to put down, and once you've read it, you might never look at the markets the same way again. And like Lewis' other book-cum-blockbuster, The Big Short, this is being developed into a motion picture.
