5.0 out of 5 stars Scary and compelling - More about greed in the "Financial Services" industry. When will they be made to pay the price?, 22 July 2015
This review is from: Flash Boys (Paperback)
This is a book you have to work at a bit to read - presumably unless you work in the stock market.
I found it incredibly interesting and very scary. Unfortunately, it is about how greed is driving the so called Financial Services industry to the detriment of everyone else. After all, it is our pension funds etc. that have been ripped of and stolen from. In most other walks of life the antics that this fascinating book highlights would have resulted in jail sentences for those in charge - not the little guy who is writing open sourced code.
I am afraid that we won't see much change, until we see some of the heavyweight leaders of banks and other financial service bodies, who are allowing / encouraging this type of thing to happen, pay the price. Jail and financial destruction of these individuals, who think they are above the law and feel it is their right to steal and cheat from the ordinary man and women in the street would be a step in the right direction. Congratulations to Michael Lewis - I am just amazed it isn't highlighted in the press more than it is !!!

Rubbish - don't buy these they seem fine when put in, but don't last any time at all. All 10 blown and have moved onto another make. A complete waste of money. I would give ZERO stars or NEGATIVE !!!!!!
