Publisher's Summary

You are not alone. Finally, here is a book that gets to the heart of what professional women really want. You have had enough of 60-hour workweeks, the day care dash, and the vacations that never get taken. You want to work, but on your own terms.

Women have power. In Womenomics, journalists Shipman and Kay deal in facts. Companies with more women managers are more profitable and report higher levels of employee satisfaction. With a new generation of women who are demanding more flexible ways to work, you have a workplace revolution that is great news for professional women and for businesses alike.

It is personal. Womenomics shows women how to redefine success, be more productive, and have more satisfying careers that don't require an all-or-nothing lifestyle.

It is possible. Shipman and Kay show women how to chart an empowering, exhilarating course to a richer life.

Inspiring, practical, and persuasive, Womenomics offers a groundbreaking blueprint for changing the way you live and work - with advice, guidance, and fact-based support that proves you don't have to do it all to have it all.

Great book

The book was great and the reader starts out great, nice pace. Until chapter1, then she slows to a very slow pace. I have an I pod, so I put the speed on fast. Since I "read" while driving I do not want to fall asleep. At the fast speed I could understand her and stay awake. I recommend the book to all women. Yes I am male. It helped me too. I saw the authors at the College of Notre Dame of MD. They were great. Read chapter 5 GUILT , they do a great job!!!

I really wanted to LOVE LOVE it.

What made the experience of listening to Womenomics the most enjoyable?

Overall; a decent/good "read". The first time I listened to this book, I LOVED IT. However, on listen #2, I found it to be quite unsubstantial and irrelevant on several levels. The book is filled of what I consider opinions and not actual facts (although "factual evidence" is mentioned)...I guess I was just hoping for more.

Would you be willing to try another book from Claire Shipman and Katty Kay ? Why or why not?

No; I didn't like her style.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

NO.

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

This is not a date movie.

Very good

Excellent content. Narrator was good except for the silly voices/accents when reading quotes - this was very annoying.
