Editorial Reviews Review

Women of the Street: Making It On Wall Street -- The World's Toughest Business, by CNBC "Business Tonight" host Sue Herera, aims the spotlight at 14 women who have made their mark in this traditionally unfriendly arena. Stars of the financial world like Mary Farrell of Paine Webber and Julie Stone of Smith Barney reflect on their paths to success and the consequences of their actions. The addition of some outside perspective could have made this good book even better. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

The host of CNBC's Business Tonight presents 14 interviews with women investment professionals who have made it to the top on Wall Street. Although all the interviewees comment on their financial strategies, Herera smartly keeps the focus on the personal factors that enabled them to enter a male preserve and thrive. Several of the women cite supportive parents; others, such as Elizabeth Mackay (Bear Stearns) and Linda Bradford Rasche (LBR group), mention that being married to men in the business who understand the stresses of their jobs allows them to lead rewarding lives outside the office. Surprisingly, only one interviewee, Mary Farrell (Paine Weber), talks about what Herera refers to as "blatant sexual discrimination on the Street." Perhaps the most interesting and important information elicited from these women, however, is their near universal belief that traditional feminine attributes have contributed to their success. As Herera puts it in her introduction, they have made "a business advantage" out of their "effort to be responsive, focus on customer needs, and avoid the hard sell." All the women interviewed say they love their demanding work; through Herera's diligent presentation, they will provide inspiring role models for those who would enter the field.

Format: Hardcover
I work in the business - this book is a terrific introduction to the rough and tumble, fast paced, pressure cooker industry known as Wall Street. Ms. Herrera profiles smart, talented, spunky woman - tough yet surprisingly tender cookies who shared determination and perseverance but chose very different paths and methods in pursuit of a career in an industry driven by ego, greed and money. They did it their way, overcoming roadblocks and stumbling blocks in the not so long ago male-dominated financial marketplace, establishing their place in an exciting, rewarding, albeit tough, industry, particularly for woman.
