    I purchased this book after hearing the author speak to the women's group at my workplace. Now, I work in a workplace primarily comprised of 20-35 year olds, and I did enjoy what Kathy said during her talk. However, this book is definitely not geared towards towards the younger demographic, coming across as both depressing and unmotivational. The book provides many examples of women, generally mid career, who became greatly unhappy with work and life for a variety of reasons.

Now, I work in a workplace primarily comprised of 20-35 year olds, and I did enjoy what Kathy said during her talk. However, this book is definitely not geared towards towards the younger demographic, coming across as both depressing and unmotivational. The book provides many examples of women, generally mid career, who became greatly unhappy with work and life for a variety of reasons. It then describes how the women became happy again. Every example, though, is a woman stepping back from the corporate work. This isn't a book so much as realizing what is making you unhappy, as it is a book about realizing true passion (art, teaching, spirituality) which requires stepping back from the workplace and "discovering true self". It is the opposite of motivational and the opposite of the "lean in" theories. As a side note, many of these women "discover themselves" through energy healing, crystals and come to Jesus moments, which is slightly annoying.

    This book is what it claims to be — a guide for professional women. I hoped to find in it more tips for women entrepreneurs but it provides little in this regard. As a self-help book for career-women in corporate settings, however, it has some very good advice and will surely encourage those who are feeling stifled and unfulfilled in the roles they are presently playing. The book is long on examples of women who became run-down, depressed and panicky in their dissatisfactory work situations. Howe This book is what it claims to be — a guide for professional women. I hoped to find in it more tips for women entrepreneurs but it provides little in this regard. As a self-help book for career-women in corporate settings, however, it has some very good advice and will surely encourage those who are feeling stifled and unfulfilled in the roles they are presently playing. The book is long on examples of women who became run-down, depressed and panicky in their dissatisfactory work situations. However, it is short on details about how these women transformed their circumstances and recreated their lives. Personally, I feel that the author shortchanged her readers here. It is one thing to recognise that you are in a process of breakdown, but it is quite another to put the pieces of your life together again in a pleasing arrangement. It would have been nice to get a bit more information on the steps to take once you decide what changes need to be made. Obviously, each situation is unique and the women themselves are all different in their temperaments and approaches. Still, learning how others managed to begin the process of self-realisation in their work is enormously motivational, even when the person you are reading about is in a completely foreign sector or industry. One thing I can say for this book is that it comes across as genuine. I believe the author when she recounts her own experiences of breakdown and breakthrough. Her first-hand knowledge of her topic makes her a compassionate narrator. If you are a woman looking for guidance on how to transform your work life and you are willing to invest time and effort into self-examination and visualisation, I am certain you will find answers here.

    Very helpful for women facing a mid-career crisis, or those who want to avoid one.
