Synopsis: This fresh, empowering, and fully comprehensive guide is the must-have handbook for every working mom!

Caitlin Friedman and Kimberly Yorio have helped readers find their dream jobs, be a boss without being bitchy, and even start companies of their own. But what happens when a career girl becomes a mom and her world turns upside down? Can you maintain your ambition and momentum at work while still being the kind of parent you want to be?
Of course you can! In Happy at Work, Happy at Home, Caitlin and Kim guide readers through every step on the road to having it all, offering detailed, practical advice in their trademark style. Working mothers themselves, these authors know what it means to juggle the demands of office and home, and they’re here to help the rest of us.
From first breaking the news that you’re pregnant, to making the most of your maternity leave, to getting the help you need from your partner and childcare professionals, this book is a must-have resource for a whole generation of working women who aspire to keep their careers on track and their home life running smoothly (without losing their minds).  As the title suggests, the insightful tips from both the authors and from intimate and eye-opening interviews with other successful moms will help all working mothers on their quest to be satisfied, fulfilled, and happy at work and at home. 

Review: Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval Review Happy at Work, Happy at Home

Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval are CEO and president, respectively, of advertising agency The Kaplan Thaler Group. Together, Kaplan Thaler and Koval have also authored three bestselling books: Bang!: Getting Your Message Heard in a Noisy World, The Power of Nice: How to Conquer the Business World With Kindness, and The Power of Small: Why Little Things Make All the Difference. Read their review of Happy at Work, Happy at Home:

Pregnancy. Maternity leave. The "next step." As mothers, authors, and executives ourselves, we know that while this time is incredibly exciting and special, it can be equally just as confusing and overwhelming. We’ve experienced first-hand the challenges of trying to balance a family and a career, and so we appreciated Friedman and Yorio’s forthright, head-on approach to tackling the expected--and often unexpected--issues working mothers encounter.

Perhaps most importantly, Happy at Work, Happy at Home arms readers with the facts, perspectives, and tools necessary to make their own smart decisions. The authors show that success (by any definition) lies in each woman taking charge of her situation and managing it by creating their own action plan. We particularly liked how they articulated applying your work skill set to this period in your life.

Friedman and Yorio also do a strong job of sharing the stories of a wide range of women from various corporate backgrounds. Combined, these mothers’ (and even some fathers’) viewpoints and decisions illustrate that there is no one "right way" to do things. The only "musts" are to educate and be honest with yourself (no, you really can’t do it all well, all of the time), as well as be flexible. These stories also generate a great sense of solidarity--this may be a unique time in your life, but you’re not in it alone. As the authors point out, "If there was ever a time for mothers (working and stay-at-home) to band together, it’s now." So whether you’re a chief executive officer, or a "Mom in Chief," everyone deserves the same amount of respect and support.

Happy at Work, Happy at Home is an empowering guide--one that will help readers find their own path to growing a career and family. --Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval
