Nitty gritty great story, takes nerve to enter those pits, a leader fearless and aggressive. Recommend to all interested in a future in the financial arena.

I really enjoyed the book. I've known Joyce for over 20 years and know her to be a very strong, intelligent and ambitious person who prevailed in a competing world of male traders. The book portrays how a woman can be successful in a mans' world. I highly recommend this book.

JOYCE, QUEEN OF THE MOUNTAIN is an interesting and educational book for one who has not been in the business. Joyce,one of the first women to be a trader at the Chicago Board of Trade, tells how she held her own on the floor with male traders. She also adds her relationshipis outside the pit. I found the book hard to put down.

Having worked down at " The Board " (Chicago Board of Trade), I can relate to Joyce's many interesting stories. She was way ahead of her time, being a female trader.Her writing style is fast flowing, and easy to follow. Joyce makes you feel that you are down at the trading pits, or feeling the rush of a great trading position. You don't need a trading or financial background to enjoy this book. In fact, if I had a Hollywood connection, I would not mind having some shares for the movie rights!

This is a must read book and should be added to all book clubs that exist on the circuit in the finance arena. Very strong words of encouragement for women that are wanting to venture into the futures market. Thank you Joyce Selander for having the courage to write this book.

Joyce's book is a great memoire, not only of one woman's fascinating career, but also of a legendary aspect of American business -- the commodity trading pits of Chicago. Many other books, both fiction and non-fiction, have been written about the Chicago trading pits, but Joyce's book is the inside scoop from, not just an inside observer, but an inside major player and influencer of many of these events. The stories she tells are very personal, but take place in the context of several decades of the evolution of the wider game of global finance, of which Chicago's markets have been a major and key factor. Joyce has written in a very easy-to-read, conversational (almost confessional) tone that makes it a page-turner. Buy it and enjoy.
