The author is well aware of the numerous gaffs in Lewis' book and doesn't offer excessively cutting snark or gentle understanding but proffers the matter-of-fact tone one would expect from someone who has so many facts on this their matter of expertise. There is a whiff of condescension that can be simply attributed to the rather ad hominem attack Lewis' book constitutes against HFT and its professionals.
Kovac not only thoroughly addresses the arguments made by Lewis in his book, but he does so in a respectful and professional manner. His book is well researched and written in terms that I could understand (with perhaps only an instance or two where I had to do further research to understand the point he was making.)
Each argument that Kovac makes in response to Lewis’ book is well thought out and explained in great detail. His sources are cited, making it easy to check up on his points. Even if you agreed with Lewis’ book, I recommend that you read this follow up so that you’re able to see both sides of the argument. Whether or not you’ll change your mind is up to you, but you should always be opened minded to hear the other side of the story.
Definitely worth a read to hear the other side of the story.
