This book is a wonderful and inspirational read! Confessions of a City Girl is a great depiction of what it's like to be a woman working in a male dominated industry. The book accurately describes the constant pressure to not only perform on the job but the pressure to adapt and completely change who you are in order to fit in and be seen as one of the guys.
As a female working in the investment industry, I was able to relate to the main character. Through specific examples the author brilliantly describes the constant pressure women face to continually prove their worth and the pressure to go above and beyond in the workplace to gain recognition amongst the men.
Confessions of a City Girl is also inspirational as it dives into the personal life of the main character and reveals the sacrifices and heartaches endured in order to break through the glass ceiling and build a successful career in The City.
An entertaining and insightful read for both men and women alike!
