Two dozen role models for black women in business speak for themselves about the joys and hazards of success. Few, if any, are recognizable names, like a Dori Wilson or an Oprah Winfrey. Some are just starting out; Lisa Cowan, a 24-year-old, talks about the risk in switching from one career (in bonds) to another (in management consulting). All acknowledge the difficulty of achieving success, admitting that it's often tougher to advance simply as a woman than as a black woman. The unifying factors among all 24 are, first, inordinate drives to succeed, and, second (and ironically), a dedication to career tracks that never quite run straight. Good words of counsel ("You really have to be broader in thinking about who can help you accomplish your goals," for instance), honesty, and succinct biographies help make this compilation appealing. Barbara Jacobs
