Summary Wanda Jablonski began her career as a "copyboy" at a time when women were rarely hired as business reporters and came to wield extraordinary influence over the oil industry from the 1950s through the 1980s. Tenacious and glamorous, Jablonski talked her way into exploration sites in Middle Eastern deserts, drilling camps in the Venezuelan jungle, male-only boardrooms in London, and even the king's harem in Saudi Arabia
