Flash Crash is based on the true story of an individual trader in the UK who amassed a fortune trading from his parents home, he ended up being taken advantage of by financial advisors and prosecuted by various US Govt departments.
The book was fascinating and entertaining, it is very well put together and keeps you engaged the whole way through until the end.
The book highlights no matter what you think about what you are doing as an individual, once the US Govt decides to go after you for whatever reason, they will do everything in their power to create a case against you.
