Format:Hardcover
David Kynaston does a great job throughout the book with pictures and narrative on the birth and life of Liffe. Provides a wonderful insight into part of the world of futures, and will also be a must buy for anyone who used to work on the Exchange floor. The only tiny however is at the end of the book where he states that "At the heart of an exchange is the trading floor." But still he wrote the book in 1997, a year or 2 before screen trading really took hold, so I wont let that be a failing of the book. A great read all in all, highly reccommended.
