4.0 out of 5 stars Caveat emptor, 7 May 2014
This review is from: Flash Boys (Hardcover)
Lewis is to be congratulated in his work. His services to the Finance sector are unparalleled.

However readers may by interested in a review on Amazon.com, the American website.

Reviewer Daniel writes on April 1:

Michael Lewis has too many wrong facts, and basically he loses credibility because of this. Moreover, the whole book is only focusing on the speed aspect of HFTs, and latency arbitrage, that's only a small part of HFTs and market making. In addition, he only presents facts that support his point and many facts where they are blatantly false. Next, I will go thru some of these facts presented in Lewis' book:-

Reviewer Daniel goes through these facts in some detail.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment., 25 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have two problems with this product.

First, it is an American edition written in American English. Thus we have spellings "color" and "labor" and much more. Even C. S. Lewis's own words have been translated into American English.

Second, it is not as the title describes: "C. S. Lewis Bible". Lewis used mainly the 1611 version, which in his day was called the Authorised Version. Further, the extracts from Lewis's books co-incide only now and then with the Bible passages they seem to illustrate.

For me the answer is to read once more six or seven theological books of Lewis himself - books which have taught me so much. This volume has the appearance of a cut and paste job.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly inspiring story, 4 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A truly inspiring story of an age when men were men, unlike the wimps of today.

Taylor's carefully researched history is written in clear, easy to read English. He is not an academic historian and he brings history to life.
