Item description for Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much by Anne Wilson Schaef...
This important and timely book concerns the immediate future of business, society and the economy. We are, says Drucker, entering a new economic era with new trends, new markets, new currencies, new principles, new technologies and new institutions. How will managers and management deal with these new realities?
This book, the author explains, "is concerned with action rather than understanding, with decisions rather than analysis." It deals with the strategies needed to transform rapid changes into opportunities; to turn the threat of change into productive and profitable action that contributes positively to our society, the economy and the individual.

Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much Apr 19, 2008
This is my second purchase of this book-- this time as a gift. I enjoy most of the guidelines. It has some good advice.
very well done Feb 19, 2008
I read this daily and have bought it for presents for several family members and friends.
Great book, too bad the publisher doesn't believe in it. May 15, 2007
I own the first edition of this book and have found it to be very helpful over the years. I recently bought the new edition and was very disappointed with the quality of the book. It's clearly not made for daily use, much less use over many years. The binding is stiff, hard to pry open and easily broken; the paper is the equivalent of cheap newsprint that will yellow within the year. It's clearly not constructed for daily use, but designed to be one of those quickie, "I know how you feel" gifts that you buy for someone you think is doing too much.
It's a pity because the book deserves a better presentation. It makes you think about the far-reaching effects of perfectionism, workaholism, and "busy-ness" on your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health. Not every day is a perfect meditation, but every couple of days the alignment of the meditation with the events in your life creates a moment where the lightbulb goes on and you're jolted with the truth of who you are. With that revelation comes the possibility of change: a different decision; maybe a better decision.
I'd love a high-quality version with a daily marker ribbon sewn into the spine. It's a good book and deserves better from its publisher.
Great Book for Women on the Go Apr 11, 2004
What I love most about this book is that it is small enough to bring with you anywhere you go, and the wisdom large enough to calm and soothe you no matter where you are. It's the type of book that you can open to any page, and find wisdom ranging on topics such as: Being present to the moment; Busyness; Exhaustion; Goals; Honesty; Wholeness; Live life fully/Curiosity; Forgiveness; Feelings/Control; and the great list goes on - all 365 of them. If you feel harried and rushed, are in a long supermarket line, or stuck on traffic, this is the perfect book to open up and get you to feed your mind with wisdom to bring you more inner peace. A wonderful book, and I think it is great for men too.

Why are you overworked? Dec 19, 2003
This little day-to-day book may help explain to us why as women we often make life choices that leave us over-worked and feeling bitter and unfulfilled. Using a combination of quotes, questions, and tough-love talk, Anne Wilson Schaef's book sheds some 12-step spiritual-style and common-sense light into the dark corners of the busy-rushaholics- work-aholics life. Give this book to a woman you love or admire who "does too much" and then buy a copy for yourself.
