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.

From the Publisher:

Herera, a deft interviewer, chronicles the stories and insights of the most ambitious and influential women who have made their mark on the Street. Every page of Women of the Street is filled with the wit and wisdom of brilliant, high-powered women who have challenged pin-striped conventions and blazed new trails. They are women who have earned every ounce of respect and influence they possess. Their stories will be inspirational not just to women, but to anyone seeking to make it in the hard-edged world of Wall Street. The first book ever to focus exclusively on the stories of women's experiences on Wall Street.
