What a wonderful book! I worked on the production but kept stopping to read the fabulous tips and ideas Kathy Peel has to offer. I sent a copy to a friend, who apparently had a bit of a battle to keep her hands on it--everyone in her office wanted it, too. I'm not a mom, but it doesn't matter. These tips are great for any working person: organize your time, your home, your work, your life!
