Summary
  • In When Work Doesn't Work Anymore, Elizabeth Perle McKenna gives passionate voice to an issue that concerns every woman working today. With eloquence and candor, she exposes the unlivable bargain women have made in order to have meaningful work in a world whose rules are still designed to suit men. Consequently, no matter how high the rise in salaries or positions, women's stress and dissatisfaction are higher still. McKenna speaks with profound understanding and experience to the many of us who have come to the sobering conclusion: we love what we do but it just isn't working for us anymore
  • McKenna's original research and hundreds of interviews tell a dramatic story of the hidden trade-offs, submerged values, and outdated premises that are wearing women down in the workplace. In this brilliant examination of our culture of achievement, she exposes the powerful forces that keep women stuck in the unfair and outdated choice between having success and having a life. She offers women a way to identify their own values, reclaim their identities, and define success on their own terms. Her book will help women reconstruct their lives in the middle of living them
