3.5 stars. Interesting & informative, even to a politics & economics non-lover. Sometimes even amusing, in a somewhat scarey & depressing way.

I've read a few books by Lewis at this point and find them to be consistently entertaining.

This book in particular has a bit of slow start—covering the laying of a fiber optic cable from Chicago to New Jersey—but picks up from there.

The book is essentially about front-running: financial arbitrage transactions that degrade rather than improve market function (as opposed to other kinds of arbitrage, which perform a useful function).

It is fascinating to read this book now, as the crypto space has been working hard to build mathematically-provable non-front-runnable exchange protocols—an aspirations that the protagonists of this book could only dream of.

Lewis paints a pretty damning picture of the Securities and Exchange Commission—an administration whose legislation exacerbated high-frequency trading exploits, and whose staff regularly were corrupted by the industry. I can't say recent SEC actions in crypto have improved this picture in any way.

If you want to really understand what was so badly wrong about the US financial system during the naughties and why its stupidies brought about the Global Financial Crisis you couldn’t do better than read this book, which is as gripping as a novel. Lewis, who was once a stock market trader himself, is well placed to describe and explain the madness of the trading in financial derivatives based on hundreds of thousands of mortgages granted to poor people who couldn’t afford them.
