Book Description

3 Sep 2003 Chicken Soup for the Soul (Paperback Health Communications)
Whether she is a corporate executive or a factory worker, an entrepreneur or a "mompreneur," today's woman is an integral part of the workforce and the American Dream. Women have made inroads in many professions that were once the domain of only men while juggling the many demands of work and family. From the woman who manages a staff of fifty, to the mother who choreographs the comings and goings of a family of five, women are the ultimate multitaskers. This collection celebrates the diversity and special contributions of women in the world of work-their hopes, their dreams and aspirations, and their accomplishments. This very special book also acknowledges the important and often unappreciated women in the homeplace through stories of stay-at-home moms for whom raising children was their most important task. These tales recognize the vital contributions of women who find their reward in devoting their lives to their families instead of collecting a paycheck. Chapters include: All in a Day's Work; Balancing Work and Family; Teamwork; Special Moments, and more, and each shares the trials of working women and the special joys that achieving career dreams can bring. Readers will laugh, cry and nod in agreement as they connect with women who are not just making a living, but making a life.

5.0 out of 5 stars All around wonderful book 19 Jan 2005
By R. Hummel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book will lift your spirits any day no matter how bad a day it has been. This shows so many things that women in the workplace encounter and also the lighter side of things. Great book. I especially like it because the stories are short so you don't need a lot of time to get a quick lift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take Care of Your Soul! 15 Sep 2003
By T. K. Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Every woman alive is a working woman, no matter whether she has a husband and/or children, or not. There are daily struggles with family, weekly struggles with work and ultimately, very emotional struggles with just living! Chicken Soup for the Working Woman's Soul is a moment of relaxation. It's a chance for a woman to sit down with a soothing drink, put her feet up and dive into the issues that we all face - as seen through the eyes of our peers. As a mom, it's a chance for me to see that my kids aren't as wild as I sometimes feel they are ... as a woman, it was the opportunity to see that work and balancing issues happen to everyone ... and as a wife, it gave me a firm appreciation for the amount of work that my husband and I accomplish as we take care of our family. The one point of this book that isn't mentioned enough is that our souls need to be in shape before we can contend with the world around us. Chicken Soup for the Working Woman's Soul gives a woman a chance to parlay her soul into the being that she wants it to be, while allowing us to view inside a slice of another's soul. It's thought provoking, entertaining and reassuring to see that other women are in the same places in their lives that we have been with various issues. It's a chit-chat, without the other person sitting in front of you. I believe this is one of those books that you read, set on your bookshelf, and read again when the world around you is pulling you in every direction. It's a safe haven in turmoil, and it's a chance for a woman to recharge after a rough one! It's, well, it's chicken soup for the working woman's soul!
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny & uplifting 11 July 2009
By Minnesota reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I first heard about this book at my first meeting of administrative professionals (a group which I joined *after* I was laid off). This book is funny, uplifting, and interesting! I used to be a working woman, and hopefully, will be again soon. :-) I'd recommend this title to anyone, working or not. I'd love to see another edition, especially for these times, to see how women relate to the working world now. But if that never happens, I'll continue to enjoy this copy. Thanks to the authors and editors!
4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile reading 25 Dec 2007
By C. Koslowsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have enjoyed most of the "chicken Soup" books I have picked up to read. This one was for my daughter who is struggling with work and being a new mom. I felt like the stories would give her insite.
