    Mothers are the breadwinners in two-thirds of American families, yet the American workplace is uniquely hostile to the needs of parents. Weaving in surprising research about the dysfunction between the careers and home lives of working mothers, as well as the consequences to women's health, Alcorn tells a deeply personal story about "having it all,” failing miserably, and what comes after. Ultimately, she offers readers a vision for a healthier, happier, and more productive way to live and work.

    Story
    What did you love best about Maxed Out?

    Alcorn isn't dramatic, preachy or angry. She's just a great storyteller and a real person.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    She's just like all of us and shows what happens if you don't have balance or boundaries.


    Have you listened to any of Katrina Alcorn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listen to lots of books, and Alcorn's voice is one of my favorites.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she actually snapped, I had to stop and really think about my life. She helped validate my professional decisions. I left work, got a massage, then had fun cooking dinner with my kids. I can overachieve when they're older.
