"This is the book that wasn't out there when I crashed out of the work force after my first child was born, and the one I craved as I made my way back in. Non-judgmental, optimistic but realistic, Your Turn is the roadmap to finding your own way as a working woman with kids."--KJ Dell'Antonia, author of How to Be a Happier Parent
"We can't truly thrive in a workplace that doesn't allow us to bring our whole selves to work. And too many women still feel that they have to choose between their career goals and their personal goals, often just as they are hitting their stride at work.
