From the Back Cover:

WOMENOMICS is the 4-Hour Weekwork for women: a guide that shows every professional woman can work and have time for kids, elderly parents, or that marathon she′s always wanted to run.

Veteran journalists Claire Shipman and Katty Kay marshal the evidence to show how women′s management style is ideally suited to the new business world, resulting in more profitable companies with happier employees. They also show how women can use this power to get what they really want- more time and freedom in their jobs without falling off the professional ladder. Most women will happily trade some responsibility and some cash for more time and freedom in their jobs without falling off the professional ladder. Most women will happily trade some responsibility and some cash for more time-that′s the new currency.

Both positive and practical, WOMENOMICS shows women how to redefine success, be more productive, say no, and find jobs that don′t require an all-or-nothing lifestyle. Shipman and Kay give personal accounts from their own lives- the mistakes as well as the triumphs- and they share the stories of women around the country who have carved out great work-life scenarios. Above all they stay positive, encouraging and humorous.
