One very ordinary day, Maya Flowers sees a new commuter board her train. Maya knows immediately and irrevocably that he is 'the one'. But the beautiful man on the train always has his head in a book and never seems to notice Maya. Eventually she plucks up the courage to give the stranger a note asking him out for a drink. And so begins a story of missed opportunities and finding happiness where you least expect it.

Michael Lewis, the Master of the Big Story, is back with Flash Boys. If you thought Wall Street was about alpha males standing in trading pits hollering at each other, think again. That world is dead. Now, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash don't know what's happening to it. And the very few who do aren't about to tell - because they're making a killing.

To understand why so many new regulations have been implemented for more market transparency but also on algo trading and HFT regulations. The SEC early comments are also a revelation!
