Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I would still recommend this book simply for the content of the work.
What aspect of John Allen Nelson’s performance would you have changed?
John's narration was just fine until he tried to do characterizations using accents. The work became almost (cartoonish) and I think really took away from the subject matter at hand. It really would have been better just to read the story. I can imagine well enough on my own the voices of the people he was trying to emulate.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Is wincing an extreme reaction? Sigh...
Dark pools, private trading, off market, non-traditional asset trading, Sovereign wealth funds, hedge funds, etc. This is nothing new. If you spend more than 5 minutes in the trading world or have CNBC on in the background for a week, you'll figure this out.
Let me sum up the book in a few words: "People with more money trade bigger and therefore have greater influence."
I want my time back wasted on this book. It is so uninformative that it just boggles the mind that it was actually published. I don't find anything in this book that warrants anything but pure contempt.
You want to learn something about this financial crises read Michael Lewis, he actually was a trader/I-Banker with an axe to grind.
