Enough is Enough: Exploding the Myth of Having It All

Carol Orsborn, Author Putnam Publishing Group $15.95 (205p) ISBN 978-0-399-13175-2
Orsborn's remark to a reporter, ""Maybe we don't want everything,'' made news and brought her letters from a great many other frustrated women. Convinced, like her liberated sisters, that she could ``have it all'' (as promised in media hype), the author was a highly successful business person, wife and mother in her 30s when she began to think about what her achievements were costing: in important relationships, chances to rest and relax and have fun. So she cut back, and formed Superwomen Anonymous to help others in her situation. For those who didn't learn that ``enough is enough'' at their mothers' knees, she includes tests here to determine whether you are overdoing it and advice on prioritiesa bit bossy but sensible.
