Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Dylan Baker does a terrific job of delivering this fast, irreverent, complex, and idiosyncratic Wall Street exposé on high-frequency trading (HTF) in a way even non-investors will find informative, entertaining—and scary. Baker uses speed, the lifeblood of HFTs, to infuse his narration with heart-pounding excitement. Baker’s perfect pacing amplifies the story’s intensity and drama in a way that only a truly gifted narrator can.”

    " Michael Lewis, similar to Vince Flynn, is the "MAN". There gift for story telling is amazing. I really enjoy his analysis around the financial industry and I found this book to be beneficial. One point I would note, is that this book is more detailed around finance and IT world, which I think can be easy for the average person to understand, but I found it tough to follow while listening and multitasking at the same time. Otherwise, its a killer book. "
