Format: Paperback
I found the endless product endorsements and pro-consumerist agenda tiresome and disappointing. Although Ms. Zucker mentions that modern families overspend and create their own debt, she encourages flagrant spending on home remodels, purchases of products from warehouse stores and a collection of gifts for birthdays, etc. This book applies to a very small segment of the dual career population, that which lives in the suburbs in a too-large home that would accommodate the numerous tips she offers that require much square footage. It also applies only to those who are still willing to feed their families processed foods, buy gender-specific gifts and pretend to practice equally-shared parenting, while not actually doing it. It is clear from her checklists and examples of a typical day that Ms. Zucker is still doing the majority of housework and childcare. She is a conservative traditionalist who happens to also have a career. This is not what I would expect from such a progressive-sounding title.

I read a good review of this book on mommytrack'd and was excited to order it. It does have some useful tips in it. As a working mother of a two-year-old, I had figured out the majority of them already. It has many tips that are not really tips but take up pages (buy stuff online to save time? is that really a hot tip? ). I can see that it would be useful for brand-new moms, though, especially if you don't know a lot of other working moms. The two biggest disappointments for me were her unrelenting pushing of brand name products and the list of easy dinners. She is a brand manager at Proctor and Gamble and gives recipes with ingredients like Kraft cheddar cheese, and tips like buy Always in bulk. It is really annoying. The list of easy dinners is actually why I bought the book, which if I had seen in a real bookstore rather than on Amazon I never would have gotten because they are basically a list of frozen prepared foods by P&G companies. She acknowledges the excessive branding in the book by saying she is a brand manager and more or less loves the power of brands, but I found this so revolting that I couldn't even finish the book. Which would be really short if you changed the formatting to cut out empty space from super-short "chapters" and photos of her closets, by the way. Mainly I feel mommytrack'd has let me down.

This book was great! The tips are helpful - but even more useful is hearing from a working mother of 3 who claims the whole family can be happy in a dual career household. Her family values are inspiring and her positive attitude toward it all is refreshing. For those new mothers who have careers and had a stay-at-home mother growing up - Joanna is your role model. Read this book and give up the guilt!
