About the book

'Hilarious and heartbreaking... this book about choices and their consequences is a gripping read.’ – Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

'An Intriguing tale of lethal ambition' – Kirkus Review

'Ever wish you had a friend who had worked in the Wall Street pressure cooker and could tell you what it's really like? Meet Suits author Nina Godiwalla. Her candid memoir is a must-read for anyone (especially any woman) aspiring to a career in high finance.’ – Anne Fisher, Fortune.com, CNN Money

'Fresh, funny and utterly convincing. Nina Godiwalla has perfect pitch. In Suits she not only nails the Wall St. culture, she gets inside the skin of a fiercely ambitious young woman caught in the cross hairs of culture and gender.’ – Sylvia Ann Hewlett, author of Top Talent: Keeping Performance Up When Business Is Down (Harvard Business Press)

'Suits is a riveting read! With relentless candor, Godiwalla reveals the mind-numbing drudgery demanded of the worker bees in the innards of Wall Street. She fiercely exposes the soul  destroying compromises of a woman trying to gain acceptance in the male dominated world of investment banking.’ – Bapsi Sidhwa  

'Nina Godiwalla has managed to combine heartwarming, heartbreaking, and hilarious in one great book. Suits, an unusually candid insider's look at the darker side of Wall Street, is an absolute must-read for any woman considering a career in financial services.’ – Lois P. Frankel, author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office

'Told with alarming detail and considerable humility, Suits is a tale that will help the reader hone his or her ambition down to a finer, more human point.’ – Los Angeles Times

No class can prepare anyone for a career on Wall Street. While others in Nina Godiwalla's Persian-Indian immigrant community were content to fulfil their parents' dreams, Nina's fierce ambition pulled her from Houston to New York to become a banker. The 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 mould of her fellow recruits: wealthy, white and male. But would she have to lose her Southern accent and suppress her family's heritage to prove her worth on the trading floor?

In the tradition of Michael Lewis's Liar's Poker, 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 Nina left behind: a story of fathers and daughters, the pursuit of honour, swapping your grandmother's shrimp curry for takeout sushi and cocktails. Funny, candid and occasionally heartbreaking, Suits reveals how much we've been conditioned to trade for success.
