I Murder of Crows found this book disappointing probably due to the marketing as much as anything else I had seen this advertised as a measured response to Sheryl Sandberg s Lean In but it merely turned out to be Tiffany Dufu s version of the same story The endorsement by uiet author Susan Cain had me hopeful but while Dufu does spend a great deal of time discussing household communication the tales of her networking activities were than enough to make an introvert s head spin It s an amazingeat that she gets any work done at home or at the office between all the cocktail parties and coffee dates even if many of these activities are part of her job description and that of her husbandMany readers of Lean In complained that it was out of touch with non executive women In this regard Dufu deserves credit or eaturing a Silence in Hanover Close (Charlotte Thomas Pitt, few stories of average lower income women a bus driveror instance navigating the demands of unforgiving work schedules child care and household management But I wish she would have given them attention Dufu may not be a Google executive but her personal story had much the same thrust as Sandberg s with the drive The Complete Idiots Guide to Starting a Web-Based Business for a trophy career at its root even if that wasn t one of her explicit personal goals her story read this way to me While Dufu pushes the unrealistic dream of having it all to the side when it comes to dropping the ball there is only one arena in which that attitude is ever entertained the home It is always mail piling up home projects that settleor good enough but I didn t recall Dufu ever describing how she passed off organizing a big event to a colleague so she had a manageable load Perhaps this was merely the boundaries the book drew Tiểu phẩm báo chí for itself Ironically while Dufu is hyperocused on helping her readers break Icon free of the stifling pressure of the invisible homemakers meritocracy she merely advocates prioritizing one meritocracy the workplace over another the home I guess I was bound to be disappointed by a book that presumed all of its readers had their priorities in the same order but not without some obligatory lip service to diversity inamilies and social circumstances The main problem with this narrative is that it dismisses the many motivations mothers have Pillow Talk for working often than we d like to admit it is not primarilyor personal development though that is always a nice bonus but in order to pay the bills and support their Rikers High family an. A bold and inspiring memoir and manifestorom a renowned voice in the women's leadership movement who shows women how to cultivate the single skill they really need in order to thrive the ability to let go Once the poster girl Buried for doing it all after she had herirst child Tiffany Dufu struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed Like so many driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all they must do it all Dufu began to eel that achieving her care.
