Synopsis: The real truth about women who are at the top: "mommies" who are not derailed. Based on a ten-year survey of women achievers who earn $100,000 and more, these successful stories defy the myth about successful fast-track career women. Here are helpful tips for other aspiring women on strategies and approaches to reach their goals and balance the demands of work and family.
From Library Journal:
Who is the real audience for this book? Attacking the "Mommy Track" theory that working women must sacrifice their families for their careers, it features interviews with such high-powered women as Debbie Fields of Mrs. Field's Cookies, former Doubleday publisher Nancy Evans, and Congresswoman Barbara Boxer, all of whom earn over $100,000 a year and have managed to "have it all": career, marriage, family. The authors explore their personalities, influences, obstacles, strategies for success and for coping with guilt. But will library patrons who don't make $100,000 find comfort in the fact that Sandra Day O'Connor often did not have time to replace her sons' worn sneakers, or frustration in not being able to afford Barbara Boxer's quality time, an annual Christmas vacation in Hawaii? An interesting book, but not an essential purchase for most libraries.
