Dispelling our most cherished myths about working mothers, Suzanne Venker argues that women can never be successful in the workplace and at home simultaneously. Women can achieve the balance they so desperately seek only by planning their careers around motherhood, rather than planning motherhood around their careers.

She reads people, and he reads manualsHe doesn’t ask for directions, and she doesn’t appreciate his adviceShe is so mysterious, and he is so practicalHe does not seem to listen, and she seems so emotionalThe list goes on and on ...In a world where men and women are constantly told they are not different, His Brain, Her Brain shows couples what they instinctively know—men and women are different, and these divinely designed differences, when understood, make a marriage stronger and happier. Combining the latest brain research along with their experiences in over three decades of marriage and counseling, Dr. Walt and Barb Larimore explain how the unique design of each sex, particularly the unique brain and hormones of each, results in different habits, tendencies, and nuances of thought and action.

Being a woman, raising children, succeeding in a leadership role and living a full life remains a tall order in modern Australia if you don’t happen to be extraordinary. Being a woman on a board, running an ASX top –listed company, or running a government department remains an exception rather than the norm. Despite the progress made towards a fairer workplace, in the discussion about the lack of women on boards or the size of the gap between men and women’s pay, tired excuses are recycled. Catherine Fox labels these the seven myths about women and work.

In 1949 film star Ingrid Bergman fled to Europe following a public outcry and her denunciation by the U.S. Senate. The charge? She had an adulterous affair with director Roberto Rossellini resulting in a pregnancy, actions for which one senator called her "a horrible example of womanhood and a powerful influence for evil." Would any star flee the country over so minor an offense today? Author Rebecca Price Janney examines how people in other eras throughout American history conducted their relationships. How did they fall short of God's ideal as presented in the Scriptures? How often did they get it right? What has led us to becoming a culture of "anything goes" morality? And conversely, have there been any surprising improvements in recent years? This book is not a culture-wars creed, but rather a historical look at the American family, showing that the pattern is more complicated than a downward spiral of morality from our country's founding to the present. In addition, one of the intriguing features of the book is the author's close look at marriage and relationships within subcultures that are not often considered, including those of Native Americans, Conquistadors, and slaves. In order to better understand the state of marriage and relationships in the U.S. today, Christians need to better understand not just Scripture but our nation's history -- and Then Comes Marriage? gives readers an accessible, broad, and thought-provoking introduction to both.

Dispelling our most cherished myths about work-family balance, Suzanne Venker argues in The Two-Income Trap that women who want to get married and have children will find their home lives less chaotic and far more satisfying by making motherhood, not career, their primary focus. The premise of The Two-Income Trap: Why Parents Are Choosing to Stay Home is that childrearing is no longer recognized for the enormous undertaking it is. ‘Having it all’ is an impossible goal for anyone, male or female. The needs of children don’t allow two married parents the freedom to dedicate themselves fully to something else. That isn’t a bad thing, says Venker. It’s a good thing. It’s time to shift our paradigm. There is value in pursuing both work and family; but prioritizing family over career, and being realistic with one’s goals, is the only way women can be successful at both. The ?Two-Income Trap does two things: helps elevates the status of parents at home, and helps mothers who want to be employed create a life that works. Without the stress. Without the guilt. Without regret.

The year is 1970: The Supreme Court has legalized abortion, “Equal Pay for Equal Work” is now the law, and Affirmative Action programs attempt to redress past injustices and inequities. Women are coming together nationwide in “consciousness-raising” groups, sharing their knowledge and experiences with each other. A group of six women in Stentoria, California bond through such a group, and support each other as women in this new “Movement” are forming collectives; publishing their own books and periodicals; creating an exciting new genre of “Women’s Music”; as well as starting their own bookstores, to make these new materials readily available to the community. New spiritual movements—focused on the “Divine Feminine” principle—are also beginning. Even some men are sympathetic and supportive of these ideals. But as the 1980s arrive, the situation changes: the “backlash” against the women’s movement in politics and the media seemingly turns into a full-fledged “war,” specifically targeting the gains that women have achieved. Opposition from traditional religions hardens, and women’s reproductive rights come under renewed attack; the Equal Rights Amendment fails, even as women themselves debate controversial questions: such as banning pornography, and how to view a rising “Third Wave” of the women’s movement. Ominously, the threat of AIDS seemingly brings the era of “sexual freedom” to a close. The six women deal with all these issues, as well as personal challenges—including balancing work and family responsibilities. As the new century begins, they reflect about what the women’s movement ultimately accomplished. In a world now characterized by growing economic inequality, increasing low self-esteem for some women (exemplified by cosmetic surgery and “extreme makeovers”), legalized same-sex marriage, and media attention to Transgender issues, this book may help you to appreciate not only how far we’ve come, but how far we have yet to go.

The Different Faces of Motherhood began during a conversation between the two editors, developmental psychologists who have spent our professional careers working with infants and very young children. We are well aware of the impor tance of infants to their mothers and of mothers to their infants. However, we were particularly aware of the fact that, whereas our knowledge about infants increases exponentially . each decade, our assumptions about mothers change relatively little. We were concerned about the theories that underlie the advice given to mothers and also about the assumption that mothers appear to be generic. More and more we have learned about individual differences in babies, but not more and more about individual differences in mothers. Our second concern has been to expand our knowledge about mothers. Our assumptions were few and our questions were many. We believed that the experience of women would vary greatly, both in outlook and in behavior, depending on each woman's age, marital status, finan Cial status, ethnicity, health, education and work experience, as well as a wom an's own experience in her family origin and her relationship to her husband. If we are to understand child development and believe that the early years are important in a child's life, then it seems critical to examine our beliefs about mothers. If we are to understand human development, then being a mother is surely an important area of inquiry.

The Myth Of Excellence

The Undiscovered Consumer . . .and the Mistake of Universal Excellence What do customers really want? And how can companies best serve them? Fred Crawford and Ryan Mathews set off on what they describe as an "expedition into the commercial wilderness" to find the answers. What they discovered was a new consumer -- one whom very few companies understand, much less manufacture products for or sell products or services to. These consumers are desperately searching for values, a scarce resource in our rapidly changing and challenging world. And increasingly they are turning to business to reaffirm these values. As one consumer put it: "I can find value everywhere but can't find values anywhere." Crawford and Mathews's initial inquiries eventually grew into a major research study involving more than 10,000 consumers, interviews with executives from scores of leading companies around the world, and dozens of international client engagements. Their conclusion: Most companies priding themselves on how well they "know" their customers aren't really listening to them at all. Consumers are fed up with all the fuss about "world-class performance" and "excellence." What they are aggressively demanding is recognition, respect, trust, fairness, and honesty. Believing that they are still in a position to dictate the terms of commercial engagement, businesses have bought into the myth of excellence -- the clearly false and destructive theory that a company ought to be great at everything it does, that is, all the components of every commercial transaction: price, product, access, experience, and service. This is always a mistake because "the predictable outcome [is] that the company ends up world-class at nothing; not well-differentiated and therefore not thought of by consumers at the moment of need." Instead, Crawford and Mathews suggest that companies engage in Consumer Relevancy, a strategy of dominating in one element of a transaction, differentiating on a second, and being at industry par (i.e., average) on the remaining three. It's not necessary for businesses to equally invest time and money on all five attributes, and their customers don't want them to. Imagine the confusion if Tiffany & Co. started offering deep discounts on diamonds and McDonald's began selling free-range chicken and tofu. The Myth of Excellence provides a blueprint for companies seeking to offer values-based products and services and shows how to realize the commercial opportunities that exist just beyond their current grasp -- opportunities to reduce operating costs, boost bottom-line profitability, and, most important, begin to engage in a meaningful dialogue with customers.
