    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"
    "Author needs to check his facts."

    What disappointed you about Dark Pools?

    The author didn't correctly depict the charges and arrest of the programmer from Goldman Sachs, as I listened I made the assumption he doesn't know what he is talking about. He also made a reference to a" Lamborghini Testerossa" last I checked those cars are made by Ferrari.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Scott Patterson again?

    No


    What about Byron Wagner’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was Good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Pools?

    The description of the details and intent of the Goldman programmer that was arrested.
