Finally, here is a book that gets to the heart of what professional women want. Like most of us, you've had enough of the sixty-hour workweeks, the day-care dash, and the vacations that never get taken. You want to work, but on your own terms and in ways that make it possible to have a life as well.
In Womenomics, journalists Shipman and Kay provide a fresh perspective on the largely hidden power that women have in today's marketplace. Inspiring, practical, and persuasive, Womenomics offers a groundbreaking blueprint for changing the way you live and workwith advice, guidance, and fact-based support that show how you don't have to do it all to have it all.
Claire Shipman is senior national correspondent for Good Morning America. Formerly the White House correspondent for NBC News, she has also worked at CNN, where she earned a National Headliners Award, among many other honors.

“Buy a copy of Womenomics for yourself, your best friend, your daughter, your star employee, and even your boss.”
-Cathie Black, president, Hearst Magazines and author of Basic Black
