Summary of Finding Time
Breathing Space for Women Who Do Too Much
How can supermoms stay sane? Promise less, turn off the phone, and say, “no.”
Paula Peisner Coxe’s Finding Time is more inspirational than instructive. As the subtitle suggests, the book is aimed at would-be supermoms, and Coxe does a commendable job addressing the demands that stretch women thin both at work and at home. The book itself will fit nicely into a tightly packed schedule – it’s arranged into 36 short chapters, each with its own focus. Within those chapters, harried women likely will find comfort in seeing that others share their familiar woes. What they won’t find are new ways to deal with their troubles. Some of the timesaving tips that Coxe offers: Use an answering machine to screen calls and turn off your cell phone when you don’t want to be disturbed. These techniques hardly qualify as innovative, and neither, in truth, does her writing. Coxe actually uses the line, “Elephants remember, people don’t.” Really. Nevertheless, getAbstract recommends this book to any woman who feels that she might not be able to keep up much longer. For that group, Coxe’s book offers an important message – you are not alone.
