Who Should Order Up this Book?
The Meat & Potatoes:
The beefiest part of the book is Section Two, "Rewards Beyond the Bottom Line: Tales of Women Who Are Redefining Success on Their Own Terms." Their stories show how leaving the high-powered, lucrative corporate world isn't the end of the world. Rather, these tales from the trenches reveal how working women and mothers are creating their own definition of success. Some resign to take less stressful and time-consuming positions, while others take leaves of absence to regroup or to start their own businesses.
Though, this book is by no means a how-to on the perks and jerks of starting a biz. And except for Chapter 9, "Postpartum Blues: Putting An End to the Tug-of-War", it doesn't give an in-depth look into how becoming self-employed can be the "soul of success" for some women.
The last section, "Finding Solutions for Work-Life Conflicts," discusses ways corporate America and its employees are responding to this need for flexibility and quality family/personal life. This may make interesting reading for those women who are still working in the so-called "rat race" and for possible future small biz owners who want to promote family, flexibility and personal satisfaction among their employees.
