After interviewing hundreds of parents and employers, surveying more than a thousand working mothers, and combing through the latest government and social-science research, the authors have discovered that kids, husbands, and wives all reap huge benefits when couples commit to share equally as breadwinners and caregivers. Mothers work without guilt, fathers bond with their kids, and children blossom with the attention of two involved parents.
The starting point? An attitude shift that puts you on the road to 50/50 - plus the positive step-by-step advice in this book.
From "baby boot camp" for new dads to exactly what to say when negotiating a leave with the boss, this savvy book is full of fresh ideas for today’s families offering encouragement, hope, and confidence to any woman who has ever questioned her choices regarding work and family.

This managed to take away all my angst
I'm in my mid twenties, have a job I love, a boyfriend of 4 years that I adore and just moved in with and still there was always this angst. 1. That I'd have to give up my career for my future kids like my mom did 2. That the traditional way to raise kids really us the only way to raise healthy, happy, successful children 3. That my selfish need for a career would ultumately cost me my partner.
I cried at least twice because the facts and storries showed me how wrong I was. It is possible to have both family and a career and suceed. I hadn't even realized how ancious I was about my future. How scarred and worried that I'd have to give up on my dreams - and I'm not even planning to have children for the next 7-10 years.
Thank you so much.
