Praise for first edition:
'This is an excellent book. It is bang up to date, in what is a very fast changing area. It is clearly written, and provides a very comprehensive description of these markets and how they work. While it fully covers dark pools, its coverage is much wider than that - covering trading in equity markets more generally' - Professor Charles Sutcliffe, The ICMA Centre, University of Reading, UK
