“For every stressed-out working woman with a voice inside saying that  things could be different, Mary Lou Quinlan offers an inspirational route map for making the change. With unfailing humour and typical female resourcefulness, Mary Lou proves that flexibility is not a sign of weakness, but a source of strength. If women love this book, it’s because they need it.”
–Allison Pearson, author of I Don¹t Know How She Does It

“A must-read for every high achieving woman who’s working more and enjoying it less. If you’ve ever wanted to step out of the rat race and start living your dreams, this book is the perfect guide.”
—Carole Black, Lifetime TV

“This book not only gives hard working women “permission” to slow down and ease up, but tells, with real-life examples and simple tools, how women can thrive while smelling  the flowers.”
—Sheila Wellington, Professor of Management, NYU/Stern School of Business and Former president of Catalyst

“By sharing her story and the stories of many other successful women, Mary Lou Quinlan tells the story of the “overwork” epidemic in the US today, facing one in three Americans.  This book is like a welcome mirror, revealing how we are living and working, but even more importantly, reflecting numerous possibilities of a different future with new and better paths to success at work and at home.”
–Ellen Galinsky, President, Families and Work Institute
