Summary note
  • "A retired Wall Street Journal editor and mother compares two generations of women boomers and GenXers to examine how each navigates the emotional and professional challenges involved in juggling managerial careers and families." -- Amazon.com.
  • "Wall Street Journal reporter, author of Earning It, and Power Mom Joann Lublin reveals how boomer and millennial women navigate the emotional and professional challenges of careers and families through the generations"-- Provided by publisher.
  • For the first time in American history, a significant number of mothers are heading major corporations. Yet these "power moms" still struggle with balancing their management responsibilities with raising children. Lublin draws on the experiences of executive mothers across industries-- and their grown daughters. She reveals how trailblazer boomers often endured sweeping disapproval for their demanding management careers, even as their own daughters sometimes rejected their choices. Lublin provides lessons and advice to help today's professional women, their families, and their employers navigate this challenging terrain. -- adapted from jacket
