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 on merit at a top agency in Washington DC, and culminates on the top steps of the US Supreme Court.
"This is a must read book, not just for we derivatives folks, but for anyone from middle America who admired those who became a great success from modest means. This is truly a good feel story." – Ron Filler, Professor New York Law
