    " Good advice for the working gal, working mom and aspiring corporate worker bee. Advice for all the walks of working woman life. Encouraging life stories from the women who wrote the book. "

    " helped me revisit my work-home life balance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lu | 2/4/2014

    " Although the book was geared more for women in business positions, I did find it interesting to see that creative ways could help women make decisions that allowed them to have a career and make choices about their work load. The only problem, sometimes those decisions effect the amount of money a woman can make. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harmony | 2/2/2014

    " Good book for both employees and managers to read! People should demand a better work/life balance and time with their loved ones. Only 3 stars because I believe in people starting a movement not just one gender. However, good tips on feeling more empowered in your job and control of your own destiny. Taking a day off to spend with your kids/husband/parents or friends is a life time memory and should not be hindered with the face-to-face time of the 40-hour workweek. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tessa | 1/14/2014

    " I feel like this would have been pretty decent if it weren't for the excessive use of the royal we when speaking about women, which was then backed up by "science." It really annoyed me, especially since while I love being a woman, I am not the stereotypical woman this book addresses at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 1/10/2014

    " This is going to be my new bible. Great book to reorient one's thinking about priorities, especially for professional women in 30s/40s with young children "

    " It was far more interesting than I expected, but still not what I expected at all "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Betty | 7/7/2011

    " Too chatty and short on substance. Plus sets aside Gen-X workers as a separate category that embraces flexibility in work schedule and the importance of families. So book reeks of boomer-bias and the smug tone is grating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chasmax1 | 11/24/2009

    " "Gentlemen, do let judge this book by its cover or title. Many concepts and real-world practices described in this book echo those in "The Future of Management" by Hamel, which is also in my list. Times are changing!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 8/24/2009

    " Lots of anecdotes, data and common sense advice. "How Remarkable Women Lead" is a much better read on the same topic. "
