Junheng Li was the perfect Chinese tiger daughter, but from childhood on, she dreamed about America and working on Wall Street. Born in Shanghai, the commercial and financial center of mainland China, Li was brought up in an environment that would raise most Westerners' eyebrows. Her demanding father drilled her on her multiplication tables when she was three, and in school she was forced to memorize facts and regurgitate them perfectly on tests. Success at all costs was the mantra. When she arrived at Middlebury College in Vermont after studying round the clock for months to learn the English language, she entered a completely different world, where values and morality were taught, individualism reigned, and analytical thinking was encouraged.
Tiger Woman on Wall Street is both the remarkable, dramatic story of one woman's rise in the global business world and a savvy guide to finance and investing. With unflinching candor, Junheng Li tells how a brainy, focused, highly driven Chinese girl who admired Scarlett O'Hara's indomitable spirit drew on the best of both worlds to go where few women have gone before: straight to the top of the financial industry.
