Not truly knowing but only guessing how work is done on wall street, this book details all the cleverness that goes into succeeding in a tough working environment. Reading this story, I felt I was there and not liking most of the characters.

This book is obviously written by someone with inside knowledge of investment firms. Leigh, the protagonist, is a relatively junior member of a team of cold, petty and driven employees of the firm.

I loved how this book shows the "inside" track of what happens in NYC's corporate world. The author moves quickly - and paints a picture of the manipulation and nasty shenanigans that go on behind closed doors. The lead character survives the titans of her company and learns a lot about herself along the way. Timely and enjoyable - I'll recommend to my book club.

This book was wonderful. It did an outstanding job of showing how things worked on the inside. The book was very entertaining, realistic, and even educational. One of the best books I've read in awhile, I highly recommend
