What Readers say about The Perilous Step

"Uplifting, exciting, and interesting."

– Kate Meyer, Former President of the CME Clearing House

The Perilous Step Hardcover book

The Perilous Step
by Eileen T. Flaherty

Long anticipated by friends and enemies, this “uplifting” (Kate Meyer) tale goes behind the veil of the derivative and securities industry, chronicling one woman’s long climb toward the US Supreme Court. This “must read” (Ron Filler) brings together Eileen’s dry wit, gleeful schadenfreude, and tender family moments (with some bad actors along the way.)

A harrowing climb from a kid labeled a dummy, Eileen’s journey includes time as general counsel on Wall Street, a senior appointment of merit at a top agency in Washington DC, and culminates on the top steps of the US Supreme Court.
