    Avis de l'équipe

    Flash Boys is the explosive new release audiobook unabridged and written by highly-acclaimed financial journalist and author Michael Lewis and narrated by Dylan Baker. This story captures the future of trading, where well-suited Wall Street traders have been replaced with a computer code so technical only a genius could outsmart it and steal from it. As a result, one of the most lucrative crimes the world has ever seen is going unnoticed. Out of the shadows comes the most unlikely of heroes set to expose them all. This is an absolutely riveting listen not to be missed. Available now from Audible.

    Description

    Michael Lewis, the Master of the Big Story, is back with Flash Boys.

    If you thought Wall Street was about alpha males standing in trading pits hollering at each other, think again. That world is dead.

    Now, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash don't know what's happening to it. And the very few who do aren't about to tell - because they're making a killing.

    This is a market that's rigged, out of control and out of sight; a market in which the chief need is for speed; and in which traders would sell their grandmothers for a microsecond. Blink, and you'll miss it.

    In Flash Boys, Michael Lewis tells the explosive story of how one group of ingenious oddballs and misfits set out to expose what was going on. It's the story of what it's like to declare war on some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. It's about taking on an entire system. And it's about the madness that has taken hold of the financial markets today.

    You won't believe it until you've read it.

    Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics. He has written several books including the New York Times bestsellers Liar's Poker, widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s, Boomerang and The Big Short, 'probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written' (Reuters). Lewis is contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and also writes for Vanity Fair and Portfolio magazine.

    Commentaires

    “I read Michael Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. I'll never play like that. But it's good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like” (Malcolm Gladwell)
    ”Probably the best current writer in America” (Tom Wolfe)

    The Best story teller

    No one does it better than Michael Lewis. This was my second book by Michael and got really hooked on. Can't wait for his next book to be available on auidiobooks.

    Very nice to listen to

    A sure read to figure out what people will do behind your back to make profits of of you, yes even if they are your broker.

    An intriguing story

    An intriguing story for someone who has even a little experience with the stock market.

    It was my first audio book and I think the narrator was excellent.

    Wall St tales

    To my surprise, I found this to be an interesting and absorbing book. I know nothing about the stock exchange and Wall St so at times needed to push through my lack of knowledge and hope it would make sense. It did. There were enough stories about characters in the system - the programmers - to ensure a human dimension. This would be a good book to reread in the near future as I am sure I missed parts of the story because of the specifics in here about the working of the stock exchange. I am now much better informed.

    Interesting

    This is my first book and audiobook of Michael Lewis. I found the story quite interesting, but for several time I was lost in the techinal details. Maybe this kind of book is just not the type to be heard once. But the essence of the story is very clear and the message is encouraging, that being good can also be benificial in Wallstreet.

    Exciting and Enlightening

    Best Audio-Book I encountered so far (and there were quite a few). What makes this book so great is the combination of a great narrative style that explains a non-fiction topic in a gripping story and and a really fascinating subject matter - for me it opened up a whole new dimension in the financial markets that before was hidden in plain sight.

    Short, but great!

    Love it, but you got the main point of the book just at the beginning of it, the rest was only bonus. A must have for everybody who is interested in the stock market.
