In a world of unprecedented opportunity and pressure women are struggling more than ever to make career decisions and move forward without second-guessing themselves. Young women graduate from college and believe they have to find the perfect path and then can’t decide which way to go. Undecided is an invaluable guide to this cultural phenomenon of analysis paralysis.” Looking at both what the media and academic studies have reported on women, careers, and particularly the undecided phenomenon as well as personal accounts from numerous women mother and daughter Barbara and Shannon Kelley discuss how we got to this frustrating place, why it affects women in particular, and how today’s culture fuels our fears and distractions. The Kelleys cast a critical eye upon the psychology behind the pressure to choose, and they argue that if women are going to succeed in rising above the often-crippling demands of the modern world they need to take action . . . starting with a serious shift in perspective.

From the Back Cover:

"Undecided sheds light on the complexity of options for women today and the burden our culture places on women who 'settle'. If ever there was a call to arms for women's choice and a road map to better understand ourselves, it can be found in this impressive guidebook."
--Susan Shapiro Barash, author of You're Grounded Forever

"Job or career? Biker or banker? Paper, plastic, or recycled, reusable tote? Sane, sensible and funny, Undecided uncovers the many ways having too many choices can mess with a gal's head--with insightful tips for not only getting where you want to go but actually enjoying the ride."  --Jenna McCarthy, author of The Parent Trip and the forthcoming If It Was Easy, They'd Call the Whole Damn Thing A Honeymoon
