CHATHAM, NJ - Understand the truth behind Michael Lewis’ new book, “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” at 7 p.m. Thursday May 22 at The Library of the Chathams.

Arnuk and Saluzzi, the principals of Themis Trading, have done more than anyone to explain and publicize the predation in the new stock market. They deserve more lines in this book than they receive but have written their own new book on the subject, Broken Markets.

--Michael Lewis, author of “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt”

“Arnuk and Saluzzi are the Woodward and Bernstein of the securities markets. Their gutsy, dogged sleuthing exposed the perverse market effects of robotic trading and predicted an event like the Flash Crash 2010, long before blinkered market regulators had a clue. The two crusaders deserve a medal for looking out for investors.”

—Jim McTague, Washington Editor, Barron’s
