    In the beginning was Josh Levine, an idealistic programming genius who dreamed of wresting control of the market from the big exchanges that, again and again, gave the giant institutions an advantage over the little guy. Levine created a computerized trading hub named "Island" where small traders swapped stocks, and over time his invention morphed into a global electronic stock market that sent trillions in capital through a vast jungle of fiber-optic cables.

    Gary says: "Definitive history on Electronic Trading"
    "Thrilling insight into the world of HFT's!!"

    Loved hearing about the creation of Island, ARCA, and the passion of the programmers that created them!

    Byron was absolutely one of the best narrators that I have ever heard.. I wish the book I'm listening to now was done by him!
