I would wholeheartedly recommend this book. I have four children, and run my own company and thought I was always pretty good at time management. However, Alison's practices have revolutionised my life. I have implemented nearly every single one of her systems, and my husband cannot believe how efficient our life runs as a result. It is written very tongue in cheek, with a lot of witty humour. I would imagine this is to try to instil a little lightheartedness into what can be an emotionally hard job for mums, who have young kids. Being a mother, I find, is more emotionally draining than physically draining. This book would not only suit mothers, but any person male or female, young or old. Let's face it, who couldn't use a little more efficiency in their lives?!
