Editorial Reviews

Nina Godiwalla, expert on leadership, diversity and women in the business world, shares her life as a survivor, if not quite veteran of Wall Street, with a memoir described as "the Devil Wears Prada of investment banking". USA Today chose Suits as a "top pick" and Fortune called it a "must". In warm, professional-but-accessible tones, Godiwalla’s story engages with expected surprises in a city filled with complexities far removed from her native Houston and its tight-knit Persian-Indian community, as well as shock at the day-to-day utter callousness with which people in an influential corner of the corporate universe go about their business and lives.

Publisher's Summary

No class can prepare anyone for a career on Wall Street. While others in Nina Godiwalla's Persian-Indian immigrant community were content to fulfill their parents' dreams, Nina's fierce ambition pulled her from Houston to New York to become a banker. That rarefied taste of power left her hungry for more. Showered with Broadway tickets and ferried around in sleek black town cars, Morgan Stanley recruits led a fast and flashy lifestyle, but at a steep cost. In a world where strip clubs took the place of conference rooms, Nina was driven to fit the mold of her fellow recruits: wealthy, white, and male. But would she have to lose her Southern accent and suppress her family's heritage in order to prove her worth on the trading floor?
Nina Godiwalla offers a behind-the-scenes look at the recklessness that ruled Wall Street during the dot-com boom days. But Suits is also a story of the family that Nina left behind: a story of fathers and daughters, the pursuit of honor, swapping your grandmother's shrimp curry for takeout sushi and cocktails. A vibrant snapshot of an immigrant family with big dreams, Suits reveals how much we've been conditioned to trade for success.
