    It was a good supplement reading on gender issues However it could have been impactful It dragged on uite a bit without clear message in some chapters But overall presented insightful thinking and important message on gender ineuality

    A very important read for both women AND men Fels thoroughly examines the motivations obstacles and choices related to ambitions and achievement in women's lives She digs deep into the psychological aspects of ambition the setting of ambitions aside to raise children and the impediments to fulfilment in a society designed around the structure of men's lives rather than women's At the heart of the book is the examination of a person's emotional and psychological need for affirmation and recognition and how the choices women make or are forced to make because of circumstance societal pressure or male privilege regarding her ambitions deny her these elements of a fulfilling life The social imperatives of this issue in the US are also thoughtfully discussed by Fels and she concludes with a discussion of the need for a society wide shift in values regarding the balance of work and family for both men and women as in Sweden and other European countries if American women are to be free to participate in our society as euals

    Great look at something very personal to me looking at what makes women follow through with their professional aspirations and what usually keeps women from making it into the primetime making partner getting tenure whatever I found it very interesting and relatable She writes in an accessible way referencing research without actually really getting into technical jargon or experimental parameters In fact I wish there were a touch of the technical side than there is but I imagine the technical literature is out there for people who really want to get into it specifically And of course the problem with such a big uestion is that Fels doesn't have the answer which in some pathetic way really made me sad as if reading a book could solve everything but she does frame the uestion in interesting ways

    Unless you are completely new to women's studies and feminist issues you shouldn't read the entire book Not that you need to anyway Fels is extremely repetitive to the point where I finally just skipped the majority of the second part of the book without feeling guilty or wondering if I'd missed anythingFor me the first part of the book was the only thing really worth reading It got me to thinking about ambition and my own path Beyond that I skimmed than I read simply because I felt like I'd read it all before

    Having graduated from college last year this book came just at the right time for me Its not the type of book I'd normally read I was an English major and tend to stick to novels but it was given as a gift by a professor I highly admire Anna Fels does a great job examining the difficult place of women in our society who are often faced with a choice between career and family and no perfect way to balance the two She writes from experience as both a professional psychologist and a mother and wife and puts words to feelings that most women experience but may not fully understand
