    Story
    (49)

    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.

    Margaret says: "The definition of insanity..."
    "ME TOO!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Maxed Out the most enjoyable?

    Katrina invited me into every part of her experience. As I journeyed with her and her story unfolded I discovered that her story was also my story.I couldn't wait to see how her story ended so that I could have hope for my story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Katrina gives herself the rest she, and all of us, desperately need and then she triumphs! Woo Hoo, Katrina!


    Which character – as performed by Katrina Alcorn – was your favorite?

    KATRINA!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried. Mostly, I cried while I laughed.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for articulating what has been running through my head and heart since my son was born 14 years ago and my daughter 12 years ago. Thank you for putting your loving words out there... they made me feel less alone and way less freakish. I'm going to listen again. Right now! Every mom I know who is bravely pretending not to feel exactly like I do is getting this book for Christmas. I'll also be placing a copy in the magazine rack in our lunch room in hopes that one or more of our C level leaders will pick it up and read it.
