Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

While it's arguable that women can have both a career and children at once with some degree of success, many like Samuels, an attorney, prefer to focus on one at a time, and decide to become stay-at-home moms. But that doesn't mean that they can't return to the work they love. The key, according to Samuels and co-author Conklin, is laying the groundwork for your comeback long before leaving a job. "By planning, we mean decide, as much as you can, what you want: are you gong back to work? Do you want to try part time? Do you want to work on special projects occasionally? Do you want to work with the company again in the future?" All options are viable, given realistic expectations and sound exit and re-entry strategies, and all are thoroughly examined here in a practical and candid manner. Whatever decision a woman makes, Samuels says that those who have the courage to create a path that works for them will find "opportunity to become something else, something new-a mother who knows she doesn't have to do it all, all at once."
