Description
Bright, ambitious Sophie Landgraf has landed a job as a Wall Street analyst. The small-town girl finally has her ticket to the American elite, but she doesn t realize the toll it will take on her boyfriend, on her family, and on her. It isn t long before Sophie is floundering in this male-dominated world, and things are about to get worse.
With the financial crisis looming, Sophie becomes embroiled in a multibillion-dollar merger that could make or break her career. The problem? Three men at the top of their game, each with very different reasons for advancing the merger. Now Sophie doesn t know whom to trust or how far she ll go to get ahead.
Set inside the high-stakes world of finance, Manhattan's after-hours clubs, and factories in the Midwest and India, this is the high-powered, heartfelt story of a young woman finding her footing on Wall Street as it crumbles beneath her. Written by an industry veteran, "Buying In "tackles what it means to be a woman in a man's world, and how to survive in big business without sacrificing who you are.
