An interesting, heartening read about successful working parents (Lauren Laverne)
The most positive take on work and family I've read in a long time (New York Times)
Game-changing (Good Housekeeping)
The latest hot parenting book (Gaby Hinsliff Guardian)
This book has given me a glimmer of hope about the having-it-all dilemma (Lorraine Candy Daily Mail)
Thought -provoking ... Laura's book is refreshingly cheerful in a field saturated by misery-lit. I was sceptical, but Vanderkam is alarmingly inspirational both in person and prose (Helen Rumbebow The Times)
Shows how to nail your work/life blend (Cosmopolitan)
I'm a longtime fan of Laura Vanderkam's insightful work - her recommendations for getting the most out of every day are often counterintuitive but always realistic and manageable. In her new book, she reveals the time management strategies that highly successful mothers use to build lives that work. Thanks to her findings, I'll never look at my weekly calendar the same way again (Gretchen Rubin, author of Better Than Before and The Happiness Project)
For many years I've wanted to see reflected in our collective conversation what I know to be true in women's lives: that many of us are happily combining work and motherhood, and loving both. Laura Vanderkam has written the book that's been sorely missing, and she's done so with an impassioned, eloquent voice, important new research, and the warmth of a dear friend (Tara Mohr, author of Playing Big)
An empowering guide for professionals who want to figure out how to become superstars in their fields while building satisfying lives (Dorie Clark, author of Reinventing You and Stand Out)

This does not mean that the book is not useful and/or a good reading for women interested in improving their life/work balance. It is a smart and realistic account of how successful women combine their family life with their career. Beware: it is not a book on how to build a successful career. it relates to a subsequent step. The book is helpful when you are a successful woman already and plan to dedicate more time to family life.
What I loved: this book is jam packed with practical strategies for fitting fitness fun and family time into a busy work schedule
What I learned: so much! But what stands out is the revelation that when it comes to talking about how hard we work and how tough life is, many of us are drama queens! We focus on the negative and grossly overestimate how many hours we work. Conclusion: we have so much more free time and autonomy than we think.
What It has inspired me to do differently: Make better use of my evenings. I’m not much of a TV watcher, but I often fritter away the hours before bed doing meaningless tasks. I’m going to try out Vanderkam’s suggestion that we plan our evenings.
Why you should read it: because it will question the assumptions you are (most likely) making about whether it’s possible to have a fulfilling personal life as well as a rewarding career. And when you start questioning those assumptions, hope, and a whole host of solutions begin to emerge.
