From her front-row seat at the New York Stock Exchange, CNBC anchor and Wall Street Journal Report host Maria Bartiromo watched the financial drama of recent years and, as it played out, she began to ask herself what success really means.

Is there, she wondered, a definition of success that you can have permanently -- despite the turmoil in your life, job, or bank account? She began to explore the question with some of the titans of business, sports and entertainment, and their answers form the basis of Bartiromo's new book, The Ten Laws of Enduring Success.

On Tuesday, June 8, at Westport Public Library, she'll speak about the book and what she found out about what constitutes the bedrock to enduring success. Her talk will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the library's McManus Room, and books will be available for purchase and signing afterward.

Since 1993, Bartiromo has worked for CNBC television, where she is currently co-host of the "Closing Bell" as well as host and managing editor for the nationally syndicated Wall Street Journal Report. She was among the first reporters to broadcast live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

The author of the book, Use the News: How to Separate the Noise from the Investment Nuggets and Make Money in Any Economy, Bartiromo is also a columnist and writer for several business and general interest magazines. She has won several awards for journalism and was nominated in 2002 for a Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism for a series covering the widows of Sept. 11, 2001.
