Gender expert Susan Shapiro Barash offers women insight into their own lives. The message here is that until a woman knows what she wants and realizes how to get it, she isn't really any good to those who count on her, such as husbands, children, adults siblings and parents, and even co-workers. Barash believes that women are socially conditioned to 'sleep-walk' through life and to go through the motions without being in touch with their own needs or feelings. Once they ' wake up' and 'reclaim ' themselves, anything is possible, from a divorce to a new marriage, to a new career. This books affirms a woman's worth and shows us through case histories and the thoughts of experts, including the author, just how important it is to create our own reality and to seek our dreams. The book is particularly important in the aftermath of the September llth attacks on America, since it is now a time to heal ourselves and either improve relationships or be able to walk away. What a timely book!
