The sea shanties, YOLOs, and red bandanas were just the beginning. Authors, journalists, and filmmakers have all attempted to tell stories about “dumb money” or “a revolution that wasn’t,” but every rendition has fallen short of the truth.

Witness firsthand the real and utterly ludicrous hive-mind that brought Wall Street to its knees in January 2021, and find out why GameStop was only the beginning of an even more unprecedented retail contagion, one which will challenge everything you think you know about our markets (all over again).

In a digital world of frequently deleted, revised, and buried information, accurately piecing together events as they occurred is nearly impossible.

While other media may have succeeded in secondary recaps of the GameStop phenomenon, author Rob Smat delves into the primary source material, having lived it himself.

Most importantly of all, find out why the GameStop phenomenon isn’t some pandemic-era fad, but instead a very real and continuing battle with billions of dollars still hanging in the balance.
