Book Review: Work Pause Thrive by Lisen Stromberg #BookReview #Ad

Book Review

I am a stay home mom.  I admit this was not a choice made by me but by my health. That said I have always had great respect for working moms. So when asked to do a book review for Work PAUSE Thrive: How to Pause for Parenthood Without Killing Your Career by Lisen Stromberg I was intrigued.

As a lover of books opening the cover of this one was like taking a new adventure into a world of high power business. I became enthralled from the first chapter and was excited to learn how women with careers could balance work with motherhood. To me that is the greatest accomplishment of a mom well that and potty training your boy not to miss the target. (note to self remind teen boy that the target is big enough)

My Book Review

I dove into this book  with an open mind knowing that I would learn if only I wanted to. As i read i was captivated at how Lisen wove her own life story and experience into the facts and data she presented.  Upon collecting data for this book Lisen interviewed 186 woman and surveyed almost 1,500 others all responded they never expected to take a career break, but ultimately did once children came into the picture. Those who stayed out of the workforce less than five years found re-entry easier than their counterparts who stayed out longer. I found that very interesting.

I also found the stories of working moms to be inspirational along the way. In the end after making my way through this book I came away with even more respect for working woman and the amount of balancing it takes to have both. Plus I feel that through the stories and with Lisen insight form her own experience this book will become one that both new moms and future moms can look to for help guidance,

  1. Wow, this sounds like a really good book. I think it is always great to read about the struggles and goals and dreams they have. It can help us feel better about choices we have made or possibly make different choices.

  2. This sounds like a good book. Every book I am reading lately is talking about working and resting and thriving. This just seems to top it off. I think I will add it to my list of books to read next. Thank you!
