Format: Paperback
"In 2011, women outnumbered men in the workforce. Mothers are now the primary or co-breadwinners in almost 2/3 of American families. There are almost 10 million single moms today this is up from 3.4 million in 1970. 72% of moms work at least part-time outside the home."

This book is full of ideas and suggestions on how to survive in the work place from the time you discover you are pregnant until its time to call it quits. They worked with Working Mother magazine by using it as a vehicle to survey mothers to develop this guide. Most moms are better workers once they return to work because they have only a set time to get things done. Helpful hints like ways to sneak out of a meeting are imperative to staying sane in this fast paced world. Make sure to create strategic alliances. Invest in a mom tribe - friends, babysitters, co-workers, church members, and family. Don't fall victim to the 'good enough' as a negative syndrome...know your limits, schedule some me time, ask for help, and drop the super mom stereotype. Stay alert, be present in each moment, recognize that they are only kids once, be prepared with snacks, activities, and back-up plans. There are tons of suggestions on how to deal with various issues and ideas to solve the problems so they won't come up again. When you have a good job, make yourself indispensable, utilize social media, be technologically savvy, and keep your work area organized. This is a must have book for every mom (because we all work whether inside or outside the home).

Great resource for new parent. I felt comforted reading suggestions made specifically for parents that continue working after children join the family. (My mom & Mother-In-law were stay at home parents with working husbands, so learning the working parent lifestyle was hard to figure out ... This book helps start the process to adjust your life to new needs of your busy family and builds confidence. I also recommend Planning with kids.

I have been a working mom for a few years now. I wish that I had this book when I went back to work a few years ago. This book starts out with pregnancy and being a working mom and goes to the school years. Which is where I am now.

It is full of good advice and tips from other moms. It helped me realize that I am not alone in this working mom gig. I am not the only one facing doubts and feelings of guilt.

I am planning on passing this book on to a coworker who is on maternity leave right now. I am hoping that it will help her with the transition back to work in a few months. This is a true treasure for a mom who is heading back to work, and I only wish I had known about this 4 years ago!

A great read--I highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
This Survival Guide is the perfect book for Working Moms. If you have ever had a guilty moment about staying late for work, or fell asleep during a meeting, this book is for you. While it is not your typical "How-To" book, the guide is full of tips ranging from discussing maternity leave with your boss to advice on email etiquette. The "Mom to Mom" notes throughout the book are also chock full of advice! It seems that Working Mother has taken all the information from surveys and listened to all the stories that mothers have shared and packaged it in this wonderful guide. It's a very fun, light and informative read for all moms, whether you work from home or at an office. I definitely wish I had this book a few years earlier, but I'm glad I have it now and I know I will definitely refer to it time and time again.
