Summary
"Very few women make it to the top of their profession and among those who do, almost half have no children or other caregiving responsibilities. The message for working women everywhere has been clear: to make it to the top you have to pick one - your family or your career. In this book, two experts present a new look at how women can create dually successful lives. Women everywhere would like an answer to the universal question of how to succeed in their profession when they are also wives, mothers, and family caregivers. Using the best psychological research and personal interviews with 62 women with families and prominent leadership positions in the US, China, and Hong Kong, Women at the Top examines the most pressing question of our time - can women have it all?"--BOOK JACKET
