Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes will bring a new empowering perspective to all mothers, academics and professionals trying to have it all - kids, family, and a professional career. Its not a simple self help book - more of a manual to understand motherhood in a greater perspective- which I appreciate a lot.
Listening to book every Sunday while doing ordinary housework made me feel understood, visible and empowered as academic working mother with three young kids.
What other book might you compare Overwhelmed to and why?
Maxed out American mothers on the brink- also a great book on the topic- get them both.
Which scene was your favorite?
I enjoyed the whole book. Some parts are more personal other based with high quality research.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened every Sunday while I was home doing housework and my kids were outdoor playing with dad.
While there is a lot of great advice in this book it has a very narrow perspective. As a single mum it left me feeling like much of it did not relate to my own feelings of overwhelm.
The long list at the end of things 'to do' in order to manage our overwhelm....really just felt like more to do....I felt like I should have been making a list.
