About the Program

Michael Lewis, author of "Flash Boys," appeared on Book TV to answer questions from viewers.  In the book, Mr. Lewis looks at the hidden world of high-frequency stock trading and explains how high-frequency traders and big Wall Street banks have rigged the system to gain an advantage over regular investors.   He also talks about a group of traders who, having discovered how the market now operates, created their own stock exchange to try to level the playing field.
