I read the previous review where the writer stated that there were too many what ifs. Well, there are a lot of what ifs in life, but the general theme of this book does not rely on what ifs- it relies on previous cycles and history. The only very questionable cycle is the "terrorist cycle" which only appeared 1992 and 2001. Otherwise, I find the information credible and will prepare with it in mind. Bad news does sell, but bad news also really happens..........
It has a guy Brad who is my hero. It reads like a John Grisham novel, but it’s a true story about stock exchanges, high frequency traders, and dark pools. The author is great at explaining complicated technical subjects and telling a good story around them. In the middle of the book I was so angry at the rip-off of investors, I was thinking of writing letters. But by the end of the book, I didn’t have to. Some good things happened. And now, various government agencies are investigating the problems described in the book - SEC, FBI, CFTC, FINRA, NY attorney general, and US attorney general.
The audiobook narrator Dylan Baker was excellent.
