Work Less, Achieve More, Live Better

Product Description and Author Information

About the Book

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.
