The book was purchased for a college research paper. Some of the points were relevant to the paper I was writing, but not most of the book. I was writing a paper on discrimination of women and this was more of a rah, rah book for women and all they can do.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Womenomics was written by two great authorities. Katty Kay and Claire Shipman are high profile and powerful women who have managed to make career choices that would allow them to have satisfying family lives. They give great advice to women who want to accomplish the same goal of being able to manage a successful work life with spending time with family. The stories and examples in the book work well in illustrating the author's points. Most of the stories come from more high profile and powerful women but the advice can easily be translated to more normal women in normal careers.Was this review helpful?

Katty Kay and Claire Shipman write from experience and the advice they give can definitely be useful for any woman who is looking to manage a family and a career. I don't know how much this book will ever apply to me. I am not planning on having a children but that does not take away from the value this book would have for other women who have children or want to eventually have children. I also wonder if this book could also apply to men who have children. I know many men who work themselves to exhaustion at the sacrifice of time spent with their children. Could some of the advice be useful for them?
