About the book:
WOMENOMICS offers a strategy to help women achieve personal and professional balance in their lives, while Kay and Shipman also provide detailed research that shows companies with women managers are actually more profitable, bringing new energy towards economic recovery. The talents of women have never been in greater demand. The female management style is considered essential to a company's success, and could be the key to getting us out of this recession.

Inspiring and practical, WOMENOMICS offers a groundbreaking blueprint for putting an end to the struggling and juggling-and offers advice, guidance, and fact-based support to prove you don't have to do it all to have it all. They illustrate for women that they have much more power than they know-power to define success for themselves, to negotiate to get the work-life they really want, and to create a "new all."
