Michele Kremen Bolton has achieved what so many other authors of books about women have not - she’s written elegantly, compellingly and sensibly about the dilemmas women face when they choose to work outside the home, run their own businesses or forgo outside work to raise a family. Most importantly, Bolton provides a thorough, intelligent discussion based on solid research and real-life situations. She makes viable suggestions for solutions to many of the dilemmas and challenges that women confront. She shows a keen understanding of what women are really thinking when confronted by guilt, self-doubt and the need to adapt continually to what is still a patriarchal society. getabstract recommends this book not only to women, but to that other half of the population as well. It’s a sure antidote to testosterone poisoning.
In this summary, you will learn
- What three important dilemmas women face;
- Why men don’t face the same dilemmas; and
- How you can create better situations that come from choices that are true to your inner self.
