I'm on the fence about this book. It was funny and well written, but somehow- to me anyway- the ultimate message seemed to be that women in fact can't have it all. They are designed to be nurturers to both their husbands and their children.
I first heard about this book on NPR during an interview with the author. Since then, I've been wanting to read it and was delighted to receive it as a gift from a dear friend.
Better than average chicklit (women's fiction) novel. In spite of juggling two young children, a (sometimes) surly nanny, a lay-about husband, and a demanding career (not to mention a cyber-romance with a client), Kate Reddy is a survivor. Not a epic literature, but enjoyable nonetheless. Career-women striving to find that balance between work and family will relate to Kate and her battles.
Amusing look at a highly successful career woman who is also a working mother.
This was a fun book about a mother who needs to do it all. Something that i think many woman can relate to. I was once told that the idea of multi-tasking is simply that. an idea. It\'s actually impossible for your brain to focus on more than one thing at a time, yet multi-tasking is increasingly becoming one of the most needed characteristics for any job. This book goes into that in a fun, enjoyable way.
Very British. Kate is a full time executive in a male dominated industry with two small kids. She struggles to balance her home life and her work life all while trying to keep a cast of extended family characters happy. Cute, Bridget Jones all grown up.
