My only criticism will be that somehow the chapters feel a bit long. You get the point within the first 2/3 pages of each chaper and then it drags on a bit giving (too many?) examples/testimonies to illustrate the point.
Message of the book is that having kids and working can be managed and is better for women's long-term prospects! Surprised the book wasn't more popular but I suppose a lot of women want to put their head in the sand!
