Delightfully smart and heartbreakingly poignant, Allison Pearson’s smash debut novel has exploded onto bestseller lists as “The national anthem for working mothers.” Hedge-fund manager, wife, and mother of two, Kate Reddy manages to juggle nine currencies in five time zones and keep in step with the Teletubbies. But when she finds herself awake at 1:37 a.m. in a panic over the need to produce a homemade pie for her daughter’s school, she has to admit her life has become unrecognizable. With panache, wisdom, and uproarious wit, I Don’t Know How She Does It brilliantly dramatizes the dilemma of every working mom. less
Kate Reddy seorang wanita karir yang sangat mandiri. Mengikuti kehidupannya yang luar biasa sibuk. Ketika kehidupannya sampai pada klimaks di mana ia harus memilih antara karir dan keluarga, semuanya nampak begitu memusingkan. Wanita karir yang hebat!
I really enjoyed this book; a hilarious and all-too-true account of a high-powered fund manager trying to balance work, motherhood, and life in general. Great insight into whether it's really worth it and what mothers are truly giving up to work outside the home.
