Flash Boys: a Wall Street Revolt, Lewis, Michael
10 Lewis, Michael Flash Boys: a Wall Street Revolt
New York W. W. Norton & Company 2014 0393244660 / 9780393244663 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Ex-Library; Flash Boys is about a small group of Wall Street guys who figure out that the U. S. Stock market has been rigged for the benefit of insiders and that, post–financial crisis, the markets have become not more free but less, and more controlled by the big Wall Street banks. Working at different firms, they come to this realization separately; but after they discover one another, the flash boys band together and set out to reform the financial markets. This they do by creating an exchange in which high-frequency trading? Source of the most intractable problems? Will have no advantage whatsoever.

The characters in Flash Boys are fabulous, each completely different from what you think of when you think “Wall Street guy. ” Several have walked away from jobs in the financial sector that paid them millions of dollars a year. From their new vantage point they investigate the big banks, the world’s stock exchanges, and high-frequency trading firms as they have never been investigated, and expose the many strange new ways that Wall Street generates profits.

The light that Lewis shines into the darkest corners of the financial world may not be good for your blood pressure, because if you have any contact with the market, even a retirement account, this story is happening to you. But in the end, Flash Boys is an uplifting read. Here are people who have somehow preserved a moral sense in an environment where you don’t get paid for that; they have perceived an institutionalized injustice and are willing to go to war to fix it.

The Courage to Be Rich  Creating a Life of Material and Spiritual Abundance, Orman, Suze
16 Orman, Suze The Courage to Be Rich Creating a Life of Material and Spiritual Abundance
New York Riverhead Books 1999 1573221252 / 9781573221252 Hardcover Good in Fair dust jacket 
"What would it take for you to change the course of your life?" reads the first sentence of The Courage to Be Rich, a book that goes beyond the phenomenal success of The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom in challenging and inspiring us to realize our full financial potential, and to realize as well that the bottom line of life is comprised of much more than money. Why does it take courage to be rich? Because it takes courage to meet every obstacle and opportunity of life, to forgive ourselves and others for past mistakes, to imagine and achieve a future rich with possibility.

With her signature blend of inspirational and practical advice, Suze Orman asks us to look within, asserting her powerful conviction that once we achieve a state of emotional clarity regarding money, financial clarity will always follow. She guides us through a lifetime of financial issues, from relationships and prenuptial agreements to investment options, from the money we spend in daily life to the money we need for tomorrow. Finally, Suze takes on the seldom-explored subject of money and grace, the rewards it bestows and the responsibilities it confers.

Suze Orman may be the only financial planner for whom words like "hope," "acceptance," and "courage" are part of her daily lexicon. The Courage to Be Rich is a book that will change our very definitions of wealth and abundance.
