Upon starting to read "The Balance Myth, Rethinking Work - Life Success" by Teresa Taylor, I was interested to learn how this very successful woman had handled her career, marriage and family so that all aspects of her life were a win/win situation.

But as I read further, I found that Mrs. Taylor really wasn't/isn't all that different from the rest of us American women. Like her, initially, we "want it all" and we all want the various aspects of our daily lives to be wholesome and happy. However, the author soon found that one really can't "have it all" and that is when the true "learning" really begins.

This is a very well-written book and I would recommend it to any and all. Nicely done in getting her point across.
