Review:

“A personal, provocative and challenging book for career women who want less guilt, more life.” (Diane Sawyer)

“Womenomics describes the workplace trend that finally makes it possible for women to be successful and sane at the same time. And happily, it’s a recession-friendly formula. (Tina Brown, founder, The Daily Beast)

“Shipman and Kay have issued a rallying cry for women that is also a wake-up call for men. Our wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers are reshaping business as we know it. And that can make us all better off.” (Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind)

“Without wasted words, Shipman and Kay provide practical suggestions for how you can take charge of your career with courage and confidence.” (Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office)

“Womenomics makes a compelling statement about the financial impact women can have in the workplace and offers valuable ideas for capitalizing on this trend, even in this economic climate.” (Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook)

“Buy a copy of Womenomics for yourself, your best friend, your daughter, your star employee, and even your boss.” (Cathie Black, president, Hearst Magazines and author of Basic Black)

“Employers should be listening to what talented women want and use this book to hold up their end of the bargain, so that the best and brightest can have both a job and a life.” (Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Ernest L. Arbuckle Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School, and author of Confidence)

“Every woman who’s ever been knocked off course in the quest to have the elusive ‘all’ should run out and buy this book today!” (Dee Dee Myers, former White House press secretary and author of Why Women Should Rule the World)

From the Back Cover:

Finally, here is a book that gets to the heart of what professional women want. Like most of us, you've had enough of the sixty-hour workweeks, the day-care dash, and the vacations that never get taken. You want to work, but on your own terms and in ways that make it possible to have a life as well.

In Womenomics, journalists Shipman and Kay provide a fresh perspective on the largely hidden power that women have in today's marketplace. Inspiring, practical, and persuasive, Womenomics offers a groundbreaking blueprint for changing the way you live and work—with advice, guidance, and fact-based support that show how you don't have to do it all to have it all.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Relegating the all or nothing, mommy-wars mentality to the 20th century, Womenomics offers a revolutionary new take on the largely hidden power that women have in the marketplace. Why now? Simple market forces. Companies with more women managers are more profitable, so women are topping every company s most wanted list these days just as a labor shortage is looming. At the same time, the workforce at large is demanding to work in new ways. But Womenomics is more than a marshalling of extraordinary evidence. It also shows women how to take advantage of this historical moment by crafting high-octane careers that don t require all-or-nothing lifestyles. Most appealing, though, are the refreshingly candid anecdotes from Shipman s and Kay s lives. They also share the stories of other professional women struggling with the same issues - women who ve taken counterintuitive steps in their careers but who ve carved out rewarding work-life scenarios. More than anything, the message of the book empowers and inspires. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780061697197
