Flash Boys Not So Fast Book Description :

In Flash Boys, Michael Lewis alleged that the entire U.S. stock market is rigged. This is an extraordinarily serious accusation. If it is true that a conspiracy of stock exchanges, banks, regulators and high-frequency traders has rigged the market, this has profound implications for every aspect of our financial system. It's rather surprising, then, that this book alleging a vast high-frequency trading conspiracy included no high-frequency traders. Flash Boys lacks a single insider's account, and it shows. Electronic trading is extremely complicated, and if you neglect to talk to any electronic traders, you're probably going to get it wrong. Flash Boys: Not So Fast, written by a former high-frequency trading executive and regulatory compliance expert...

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.

My Side of the Street Book Description :

On a sticky summer morning at the end of the Eighties, 19-year-old Jason DeSena Trennert—a bright, unconnected Georgetown undergrad with big dreams and an even bigger power tie—set out for Wall Street. Mustering the perceived panache of the bigwigs, he burst through the doors of America's oldest financial firms. He was roundly rejected. And entirely undeterred. Trennert accepted a position as a cold-caller and charged ahead with the blind zeal of inexperience, finding in the process a genuine affinity for the customs and history of his work. Clinging to his dream from humble beginnings in financial sector Siberia—Morgan Stanley's Brooklyn outpost—and enduring the villainization of a respectable profession across two boom-bust cycles, he opene...
