". . .Trading and Exchanges is about as comprehensive a book about the markets and trading as you are going to find. . .[T]his book is . . .organized so that you can flip to any topic and be certain of in depth coverage and accessible explanations supported by graphs and tables. Harris touches on just about every aspect of market economics, structure and regulation, from the players. . .to the game. This book is an objective, and more important, practical survey of an area of financial economics that has become increasingly, and needlessly, complex. . . Harris keeps us on the straight and narrow. We are unable to drift into that disingenuous and murky world of trading advice based on personal success, or failure in the markets. . .Whether you are a novice or veteran investor, trader, dealer or broker, Trading and Exchanges cracks the code on practically every facet of market microstructures. It is a trading bible." "Larry Harris is arguably the foremost expert on market microstructure. ... With his illustrious background you might suspect he knows of what he speaks. After you read this book, you will be convinced of it. Trading and Exchanges is the most comprehensive treatment of market microstructure I have seen. ... Harris offers something for everyone with an interest in trading. ... [He] presents his subject matter, which could be so daunting to many of us, in a surprisingly accessible and entertaining style. Despite this engaging style, he does not compromise on breadth or depth. ... Trading and Exchanges is indispensable for anyone who cares about trading. What's more, it is entertaining."--Journal of Investment Management
