The Times, Observer, Financial Times, New Statesman and Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year 2014Michael Lewis, the Master of the Big Story, is back with Flash BoysIf you thought Wall Street was about alpha males standing in trading pits hollering at each other, think again. That world is dead.Now, the worlds money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash dont know whats happening to it. And the very few who do arent about to tell - because theyre making a killing.This is a market thats rigged, out of control and out of sight; a market in which the chief need is for speed; and in which traders would sell their grandmothers for a microsecond. Blink, and youll miss it.In Flash Boys, Michael Lewis tells the explosive story of how one group of ingenious oddballs and misfits set out to expose what was going on. Its the story of what its like to declare war on some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. Its about taking on an entire system. And its about the madness that has taken hold of the financial markets today.You wont believe it until youve read it.I read Michael Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. Ill never play like that. But its good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like - Malcolm GladwellProbably the best current writer in America - Tom Wolfe

El Autor

MICHAEL LEWIS

Es autor de algunos de los libros más vendidos en las dos últimas décadas en Estados Unidos, como The Blind Side, recientemente adaptada al cine y protagonizada por Sandra Bullock; Moneyball, que se estrenará próximamente en cines con Brad Pitt en el papel principal; o el reciente The Big short, que ha encabezado durante ocho meses las principales listas de ventas. Se hizo famoso con El póquer del mentiroso, su primer libro, una narración que trata sobre sus años de bróker en el ya desaparecido banco de inversión Salomon Brothers. El escándalo financiero que protagonizó este banco, convirtió el libro en un fenómeno en ventas y en el testimonio más ácido de codicia desmesurada que vivió Wall Street en la década de los ochenta. Lewis estudió Historia en Princeton y posee un master en Economía por la London School of Economics. Actualmente es profesor en la Universidad de Berkeley, editor de Vanity fair y colaborador de The New York Times y Bloomberg. Ver ficha del autor
