An interesting, heartening read about successful working parents Lauren Laverne The most positive take on work and family I've read in a long time New York Times Game-changing Good Housekeeping The latest hot parenting book -- Gaby Hinsliff Guardian This book has given me a glimmer of hope about the having-it-all dilemma -- Lorraine Candy Daily Mail Thought -provoking ... Laura's book is refreshingly cheerful in a field saturated by misery-lit. I was sceptical, but Vanderkam is alarmingly inspirational both in person and prose -- Helen Rumbebow The Times Shows how to nail your work/life blend Cosmopolitan I'm a longtime fan of Laura Vanderkam's insightful work - her recommendations for getting the most out of every day are often counterintuitive but always realistic and manageable. In her new book, she reveals the time management strategies that highly successful mothers use to build lives that work. Thanks to her findings, I'll never look at my weekly calendar the same way again Gretchen Rubin, author of Better Than Before and The Happiness Project For many years I've wanted to see reflected in our collective conversation what I know to be true in women's lives: that many of us are happily combining work and motherhood, and loving both. Laura Vanderkam has written the book that's been sorely missing, and she's done so with an impassioned, eloquent voice, important new research, and the warmth of a dear friend Tara Mohr, author of Playing Big An empowering guide for professionals who want to figure out how to become superstars in their fields while building satisfying lives Dorie Clark, author of Reinventing You and Stand Out In this engrossing and eternally helpful book, Laura Vanderkam shares valuable insights from women who have mastered their most vital resource: time. I Know How She Does It stands apart thanks to Vanderkam's nuanced understanding of what it takes to become an efficient yet balanced individual Tim Sanders, author of Love Is the Killer App This book could have been titled How to Be a Superhero, because that's how it makes you feel and act after reading it. Vanderkam's curiosity for high performance and what makes it possible is infectious. Packed with research from real lives and tips for real change, this book is sure to help women around the world discover their own path to success Jon Acuff, author of Do Over As a busy CEO, I was inspired by the hundreds of people Vanderkam studied who found ample time for career, family, and self in the same 168 hours available to everyone, each week. If my entire team read this book, we would all benefit Richard Sheridan, CEO and chief storyteller, Menlo Innovations, and author of Joy, Inc.
