    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"
    "A bit superficial, and possibly misleading"

    What did you like best about Dark Pools? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed listening to the a history of some of the electronic exchanges & learning about the personalities involved.


    Would you recommend Dark Pools to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe. I don't have a background in finance or trading, so it's hard for me to verify some of the author's claims. However, I do know software - and in those sections at least it became clear the author does not have the level of understanding he thinks he does.


    What does Byron Wagner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His Hungarian accent stood out, and not in a bad way. I think the reader did a perfectly fine job.


    Could you see Dark Pools being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really, no.
