Cin Fabre is a heroine "before her time", a projects-raised hustler (i.e. tremendously hard worker but also wheeler-dealer) living life on her own terms, fighting off the endless misogyny of her male peers and supervisors and forcing her way into the boys' club through virtue of both "nature" and "nurture." The “nurture” of her driven but non-affectionate mother and negligent and abusive father, and the quick, calculating and determined nature she inherited from both. Her unprecedented success at an early age and as a minority woman in the questionable moral morass of a Wall St cold-calling brokerage may bring the reader to the book, but the haunting tales of her Bronx childhood that she has brought to life so vividly here are the richest part of her story. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine
