    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.

    Where does Maxed Out rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the most important books i've read in a long time.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The book made me realize that I'm not the only working mom that finds this crazy life so difficult.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    What is wrong with our society?
