    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to any intermediate stock or options trader curious about the influences of computer and technology development throughout the past two decades. This book is very informative and keeps the reader engaged through a detailed description of the various people who ultimately changed modern day trading. I would not recommend this book to anyone not interested in the stock and options market.

    All in all, the information in this book will astound you as to the truth of the modern day stock market and how individual players are at a significant disadvantage to the institutional and automated players.
