Reviews
"... In addition to its scholarly qualities, The Flexibility Paradox is of great value to society at large because of the social project it represents." Etnofoor
"... three decades after the publications of The Second Shift (1989) by Hochschild and The Overworked American (1992) by Schor, Chung's book provides a necessary update on the state of work and leisure, particularly in light of the social changes wrought by the global pandemic." Social Forces
"...a welcome and timely contribution to the disciplines of sociology, social policy, and management studies. Readers interested in gender inequalities in the interface between work and family life would find this book interesting and informative... an excellent primer for anyone researching or studying flexible working." Gender, Work and Organization
