Editorial Reviews

Review

Jenny Garrett charts the rise of the female main earner (ME) in her highly engaging exploration of female breadwinners. That a fifth of women in the UK now earn more than their partners is significant, yet we hear little about this. Garrett's book illustrates why this is something we should celebrate, and yet we are resistant to do so.This book is an invaluable and inspiring source for those who will, either through choice or by chance, embark on this exciting route. She offers advice and space to reflect and challenges one of the modern day taboos. -- Mary Honeyball MEP, London MEP and Labour European spokesperson on women

From the moment I started reading Rocking Your Role I was totally absorbed, recognising so many of the issues that Jenny refers to within this clearly written and practical book. She takes the reader on a journey which makes you question so many things about yourself but in a way that energises you to step back and think about your work life balance, and the importance of being honest with yourself and those around you. It will resonate with successful women, especially those who are the female breadwinners, in all areas of life. -- Pim Baxter, Deputy Director, National Portrait Gallery

A rare and powerful book covering an immensely important subject in a personal, practical and very moving way. I was inspired by reading it and left breathless by the achievements of the author and the women whose stories she tells. -- Dr Ann Limb OBE DL, Chair, South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership Reading this book lifted the clouds of expectations, guilt, imaginary limitations... it liberated me to pursue my own personal dreams while still providing for my family. -- Nadine Juignet, Business Development Advisor at Hewlett Packard

This is a well researched book, that I think will meet a real need, the practical exercises are welcomed, much better than just a pile of theory. Perfect for those women struggling with being breadwinner. -- Heather McGregor, Author, Careers Advice for Ambitious Women

Jenny's insightful work is clearly founded on a deep understanding of the dynamics of relationships and careers, and on the ways in which people develop and learn, as well as on her interviews with women specifically for this book. I wish Rocking Your Role well; a book like this, should it become a top seller, will do more to transform the lives of women, and those of their partners and families, than any number of Government commissions -- Philip Whiteley, Business author

Jenny has a great writing voice and has bought a human touch to a taboo subject with great sensitivity and creativity. -- Jackee Holder, Coach, Author

Jenny is an inspirational role model and her book provides a practical guide to huge possibilities if we heed her liberating advice. I felt hugely empowered as I worked through the exercises and loved her "ego check" section. A must read book for every woman which I will buy for my dearest girl friends. -- Lynne Sedgmore CBE, Executive Director of the 157 Group of FE Colleges

This book is amazing. Jenny's voice, and what she shares about her story are inspiring, and reading it sounds like talking to her or listening to her - her warmth, intelligence, and caring come through in every sentence. I love the structure of the book, and am looking forward to working my way through it. One really nice and useful touch - a hint about how you might experience the book - she says you may be very energized in the first three chapters, with energy flagging in the next three, and building up again in the final six. That type of knowledge will be helpful to know, so that we persist. It is touches like that demonstrate Jenny's attention to detail and make Jenny a joy to work with.

From the moment i started reading the book I was captivated, fascinated and intrigued by Jenny's personal story as well as the stories of the many other people's she talks about. Rocking your role is truly about shining your light no matter what your circumstances may be. The lessons shared were very valuable

It gave me a new dimension of understanding as well as appreciation about the difficulties most women as well as man face in various scenarios as one of the partners becomes ME and the other looks after the family.

I loved the exercise, the introduction to icons for specific call to action were very catching and effective to use when I needed to reflect or what action to take. Genius idea. As an International Author, Mentor, and Life coach I now recommend this book to both man and women who love to rocking their role.

Jenny Garrett's "Rocking Your Role" provides a practical and insightful approach to examining your status as a female breadwinner. She is candid and empathetic, yet pointed in her thoughts on how to examine yourself in a breadwinner role. I am only through the first chapter of the book, but I look forward to reading more and taking Garrett's career and self development approach on board. Her work is necessary and relevant in a time when more and more women are supporting families/themselves. I would also like to note that Garrett's micro and macro approach to career and self evaluation emphasizes practice over a longer period of time rather than a "quick-fix" solution.

This book is a great addition overall to the discussion of women's leadership!

I think this book will open your eyes to some dilemmas women face when confronted with today's reality of having the their men take a new role living behind traditional roles that we as women as very accustomed to. It will answer many questions that have not been answered and recognize attitudes that we have not realize we as women had because of the newness of our new roles in this society. I think this book can be very helpful to women that are in the workforce unwillingly and thus face the frustrations of adjusting to a roll they are not necessarily happy about.
