I Don't Know How She Does It

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-12-03

This is the best audio book I have listened to. The book itself, about a busy executive mother trying to juggle the demands of work, marriage, child rearing, is poignant but written so that it is drolly comic as well. The reading is the best I have heard -- good change of voice for different characters, filled with nuance and absolutely perfect for the book.
