520    "From a black, gay woman who broke into the boys' club of 
       Silicon Valley comes an empowering guide to finding your 
       voice, working your way into any room you want to be in, 
       and achieving your own dreams. In 2015, Arlan Hamilton was
       on food stamps and sleeping on the floor of the San 
       Francisco airport, with nothing but an old laptop and a 
       dream of breaking into the venture capital business. She 
       couldn't understand why people starting companies all 
       looked the same (white and male), and she wanted the 
       chance to invest in the ideas and people who didn't 
       conform to this image of how a founder is supposed to 
       look. Hamilton had no contacts or network in Silicon 
       Valley, no background in finance-not even a college 
       degree. What she did have was fierce determination and the
       will to succeed. As much as we wish it weren't so, we 
       still live in a world where being underrepresented often 
       means being underestimated. But as someone who makes her 
       living investing in high-potential founders who also 
       happen to be female, LGBTQ, or people of color, Hamilton 
       understands that being undervalued simply means that a big
       upside exists. Because even if you have to work twice as 
       hard to get to the starting line, she says, once you are 
       on a level playing field, you will sprint ahead. Despite 
       what society would have you believe, Hamilton argues, a 
       privileged background, an influential network, and a fancy
       college degree are not prerequisites for success. Here she
       shares the hard-won wisdom she's picked up on her 
       remarkable journey from food-stamp recipient to venture 
       capitalist, with lessons like "The Best Music Comes from 
       the Worst Breakups," "Let Someone Shorter Stand in Front 
       of You," "The Dangers of Hustle Porn," and "Don't Let 
       Anyone Drink Your Diet Coke." Along the way, she inspires 
       us all to defy other people's expectations and to become 
       the role models we've been looking for"--|cProvided by
