Review quote

"Michael Lewis is a genius, and his book will give high-frequency trading a much-needed turn under the microscope." -- Kevin Roose "Dazzling... guaranteed to make blood boil... riveting." -- Janet Maslin "If you read one business book this year, make it Flash Boys." -- David Sirota "A beautiful narrative, so well-written. You've got to get this." -- Jon Stewart "Important to public debate about Wall Street... in exposing what one of his central characters calls the 'Pandora's box of ridiculousness' that financial exchanges have become." -- Philip Delves Broughton "Michael Lewis knows how to tell a story." "Remarkable... Michael Lewis has a spellbinding talent for finding emotional dramas in complex, highly technical subjects." "Who knew high-frequency trading was such a sexy subject?" "Michael Lewis is one of the premier chroniclers of our age." "Score one for the humans! Critics of high speed, computer-driven trading have a new champion." "If you own stock, you need to read Flash Boys... and then call your broker." "In 24 hours, I plowed through Michael Lewis' new blockbuster Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt, a book about the huge changes that have occurred in financial markets in the last three decades. It's compelling reading." -- John Aziz "Flash Boys richly deserves to be the first chapter in a new discussion of market rules and abuses... Lewis raises troubling and necessary questions." "When it comes to narrative skill, a reporter's curiosity and an uncanny instinct for the pulse of the zeitgeist, Lewis is a triple threat." -- James B. Stewart "[Lewis] is a top-flight storyteller." -- Lev Grossman "A fast-paced tale backed by gutsy reporting." -- Tina Jordan "A tour de force that will grab and hold your attention like the best of thrillers." -- Jon Talton "Lewis writes about the resilience of underdogs, even in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds. He's doing essential work, and anything that embarrasses fat cats and encourages reform is a flash in the right direction." -- Julie Hinds "Lewis simply tells the truth." -- Will Deener "Michael Lewis has another hit on his hands." -- Zachary Warmbrodt and Dave Clarke "[Lewis's] ability to find compelling characters and tell a great story through their eyes is unparalleled. He can untangle complex subjects like few others. His prose sparkles." -- Joe Nocera "Fascinating." -- Steven Pearlstein "Lewis, as always, is exceedingly good at describing the complexities and absurdities of the subculture he portrays here... A deeply entertaining book, and one that illuminates how much our world has changed in less than a decade." -- Hector Tobar "As always, Lewis simplifies the complex-and makes it fascinating." "Recommended... Entertaining." "Entirely engaging... Illuminates a part of Wall Street that has generally done business in the shadows."
