I enjoyed this book as a resource to share thinking about how I could restructure my life - however, solutions aren't always applicable for the European job market.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent guide for the savvy women executive 1. Juni 2009
Von Dr. Cathy Goodwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Womenomics is based on the premise that women are demanding new rules of engagement with the corporate world. Women achievers are not willing to sacrifice family and freedom. But many don't know how to go about negotiating for what they want, say the authors. They have to overcome their own guilt and fear, so they can ask for what they want.

The book's advice seems entirely sound and appropriate for senior women executives in many fields. The authors refer to women in politics, media, finance and other industries. They suggest very specific strategies to negotiate for a desirable work schedule. The best part of the book demonstrates what happens when companies stop worrying about face time and focus exclusively on results. Just about everyone who works for an organization has tales of useless meetings and absurd ideas about what constitutes work.

However, I will be interested to see if female executives find the book helpful. As a sometime career consultant, I believe that implementing these strategies calls for strong corporate political skills. You have to know just how and when to make your pitch. The women we meet here have demonstrated their ability to contribute uniquely to their organizations. Many hold competing offers so they're in very strong positions.

I'd also like to see more discussions of the trade-offs involved Turning down a lifetime opportunity to enjoy your child's first day at school may seem like a no-brainer. Later those opportunities may be gone and the world looks different when you're ten years older. Regrets go both ways.

Ultimately, I'm concerned that Womenomics suggests that only married women with children face challenges of juggling work and personal life. Increasingly both men and women are resisting corporate demands and more of us are living in one-person households. Companies that claim to be family-friendly often expect single people to take up the overflow. Many corporate executives (both male and female) will understand when you say, "I want to see my son's soccer game." Meanwhile the components of a single person's life can seem frivolous and unnecessary, yet single people need time to develop and maintain networks of personal and social support.

The authors do not mention the trade-offs that take place in family-friendly workplaces. To take just one example, a female college professor negotiated for a teaching schedule that would allow her to be home by early afternoon, when her kids got home from school. Since there are only so many classrooms and time slots, someone else had to accept a less desirable schedule to accommodate her needs.

So bottom line: The book's advice seems sound, although I wonder if a strong, successful corporate women will need to read this book to figure out how to get what she wants. And I'm all in favor of family-friendly workplace policies, as long as we remember that some families consist of just one person and maybe a dog.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Why publish these now? 17. November 2009
Von puccagirl73 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I usually devour a book on female empowerment like a cream puff, but it took me so long to finish this book, not just because it was hard to relate to but I was reading it carefully so I would not get the message wrong. This book is quite dated and very insulting for most of the women who are not employed in so called white collar jobs, if you ask for reduced hours you get reduced pay and benefits and no one will then take you seriously. In this new economic climate if you are less visible and asking for privileges just because of certain circumstances, like motherhood, then you are the first one out the door since the company is getting less out of you for the pay and benefits they give you. Most of the concepts are pure HR family/life balance propaganda that I was infinitely disappointed that this book was even written. Reality seems to have escaped the authors and it was published too late in this economic environment to garner agreement or sympathy with most of the target readers.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Sounds nice but... 22. Juni 2009
Von Rushmore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
The timing of this book's release is unfortunate. Women who work for more traditional companies and are somewhat desperate to keep their jobs don't think about carving out time for themselves. They want more hours. They don't want to make waves.

The authors are powerful and prominent women in a relatively creative environment. They have the luxury to seek balance in their work and personal lives. Also, many of the women profiled in this book can negotiate from a position of strength with their employers. The reality for many of us who work in more prosaic industries, whose companies see their top and bottom lines dwindling, in workplaces where layoffs have taken place or could at any time, is that we are grateful to have a job to come to, and we are not writing our own tickets. The sad part is that many women probably do pick up this book hoping for a magic bullet, only to discover that it might as well be fiction. It's not about us.

The authors do make an ineffective argument that their strategy is suited to hard times as well as boom times. Also, to their credit, their underlying message that all women do valuable work is important. However, it is not groundbreaking and not particularly convincing. If this book had come out in rosier financial times, it would have a much different impact. Instead, the authors seem out of touch and only remind many of us what we can't have. Not a message we need to hear right now.

2.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Was Disappointing 6. Februar 2013
Von C. Slocum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book will be very helpful for women who fit the following demographic type:
-Aged Thirties or Forties, certainly not younger, with the cultural baggage that comes with that generation
-Thoroughly Established in Career
-Career is lucrative, self-driven, and portable
-Is a manager, executive, or other high ranked white collar profession
-Has children and likely a spouse
-Work/life issues are primarily existential and time-oriented, not financial

This book will be less helpful for those who are in occupations that require you show up to a given place at a given time, for women who had their children early in their careers, who do not command a lot of privilege. The crux of their argument is to rest on your laurels (they assume you have been working sixty hour weeks in a high prestige job up to the point of reading their book), taking a pay cut, taking a demotion, or other things that folks who work to survive may find very counter-productive.

The first few chapters about what women contribute to the work place are empowering, but after that, it stops reading as true-to-life. I am 26, and find a lot of my work/life problems tend to include things like finding affordable child-care - I have a flexible job, but it does not pay a family-supporting wage. I understand my problem is more typical for most working women. They discuss financial consequences perhaps twice in the book. It is otherwise all about time.

I struggled with the style of writing. It read a bit like an infomercial, - it read as though they were constantly trying to sell something, as opposed to a conversation. I wonder if the initial feedback of their book was that no one would buy their ideas, because it reads as pre-emptively defensive at points. The sentences are very short. In tandem with the content, the style seemed to drive home how little nuance was present in this work. I wish it had been researched beyond the few anecdotes here and there. I suspect that more research may have lead the authors to discover the economic picture is not as rosy as they think it is.

1.0 von 5 Sternen For working mothers 2. September 2009
Von Alexandra B. Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is for working mothers not really for working women. I was so disapointed in this book! I do not have kids and did not feel like this was applicable to my life at all. Here's the big mystery solved: if you have kids, your career won't/can't be first. Wow. Really? If you didn't know that you should NOT be having children.
