I used this book for writing a paper and for my own knowledge. The country is moving slowly toward creating jobs that foster work life balance. This book offers comparisons for other countries and where the US rates. We are not doing well in terms of understanding the value of extended maternity leaves for men and women. Looking to how it is done successfully in other countries is helpful. America needs to stay competitive with future generations. Working the average family to the bone with little time with their kids is not the best way to stay competitive. Good book and an eye opener with stats and data.

This book was great. You just don't know how hard you work to make having a job and a family.

This is a marvelous book describing the problems with the existing family policy in the United States and looking to the experience of other countries for suggestions as to how to fix them. It is written beautifully -- both clearly and intelligently -- and is a joy to read both for someone who is new to the subject area and someone who already has a good understanding but is eager to assess possibilities for future developments. I use this book as the central text in an advanced seminar for graduate students in public policy. It would be equally appropriate for undergraduates and for the interested layperson. The authors are leading authorities in the field and this book reflects their accumulated wisdom.
