"An indispensible and laugh-out-loud hilarious bible for working mothers. You definitely cannot have it all but having this book will help you keep your sanity."
-Amy Sohn, author of Prospect Park West

"You needn't be an office-dweller to benefit from their wisdom: Balance is a Crock, Sleep is for the Weak is for every mother who has felt she was juggling too many jobs to do any of them well, for every mother bedeviled by guilt and the endless hamster-wheel pursuit of perfection. In other words, for all of us."
-Alexa Stevenson, author of Half Baked and creator of Flotsam (flotsamblog.com)

"A must read for all those who struggle to manage the chaos of modern motherhood."
-Amy Keroes, Founder & CEO, mommytracked.com

"This wickedly funny book debunks once and for all the myth that you can balance children and anything else in life, offering comfort, smart advice and humor for those times when motherhood feels like a sitcom in which you are the only audience member."
-Leslie Morgan Steiner, author of Crazy Love and Mommy Wars, and columnist for Mommy Tracked

"Like a bracing, affectionate talking to from a (funnier and more experienced) dear friend, Balance is a Crock, Sleep is for the Weak is the perfect irreverent self-help manifesto for any working mom who struggles to keep it together. That is: just about all of us."
-Kristin van Ogtrop, Editor of Real Simple and author of Just Let Me Lie Down

"Get ready to laugh out loud, Balance Is a Crock provides no-nonsense, tell-it-how-it-is advice and practical tips for any mom who is trying to navigate working motherhood. No matter what age or stage your kids are in, this book will remind you that one of the most invaluable assets you need to survive is your sense of humor."
-Cate Colburn-Smith and Andrea Serrette, authors of The Milk Memos
