The Working Mother
Handling Both Baby and Job
I feel qualified to evaluate this book as I was working full time and got pregnant in 1989. This would have been an eye catching title for me. For all I know, I picked it up back in the day and looked at it. I am also sure I put it down because this book is so unhelpful it borders on the stupid. No where is there advice about maternity leave, legal rights, and what to do if you work for misogynistic bastards hell bent on making you quit. Not that I am bitter or anything.
But I digress, this book is full of “helpful” advice about buying groceries, washing your hands frequently and trying to be perfect. (Hah!) I believe the “test” they give is about a control freak, not a supermom, so in my humble opinion, this book was no good in the late 80s and the information has not improved with age.
