Item description for Bye-Bye Boardroom: Confessions from a New Breed of Stay-at-home Moms (Capital Ideas for Business & Personal Development) by Rachel Hamman...
"Bye-Bye Boardroom" looks into the minds and hearts of modern women who have made the decision to become stay-at-home moms. With comic relief Type-A former professional whiz kid Rachel Hamman shares the intimate secrets of her first days as a carpool-driving mom, then opens her book to the real-life adventures of other young mothers who confess their deepest thoughts about the choices they have made to leave their corporate life for a truer mission. As it redefines "Women's Lib" with a laugh for a new generation, "Bye-"Bye Boardroom" gives stay-at-home moms a true voice, a sense of community, and a chance to participate in the humorous "group therapy" the contributors offer in the frustrations, utter chaos, and yes, joy they encounter as mothers with their children. In the end, the book validates their decisions. Be it at the helm of a company, behind the instruments of an airplane, chairing a black-tie ball, or nurturing their children, the book proves that this generation of women has the freedom to choose their own path on any given day. They are held back only by their own internal dialogue and self-imposed boundaries. Through "Bye-Bye Boardroom," women can laugh and cry together and move on to find balance in their lives.

Great!! Jan 18, 2007
Heartwarming, entertaining and insightful stories from real moms. This book is an excellent resource for all moms!
Good...if you're looking to relate to other materialistic mothers. Sep 22, 2006
I read this book on Dr. Laura's recommendation and I was incredibly disappointed. The author considers herself a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM). That is, she decided to become one when her oldest was 13, and her youngest 5. Hmmm, so that means they're both in school and done with potty-training--convenient. She's got her custom-built home on a lake in Florida and has money for flying lessons and jet-setting across the country anytime her heart desires. Wow, what sacrifice. There were a few sweet stories by other women in the book, but for the most part, women wrote about the travesty of having to give-up designer shoes and couture clothes and risk having their minds go to mush by becoming a SAHM. I don't get it--why does becoming a SAHM mean one is relegated to becoming politically and intellectually obtuse? Like another reviewer noted, such is not the reality for the majority of most SAHMs. I definitely do not recommend this book.
Only for wealthy stay at home moms Aug 15, 2006
It's nice that she could continue to drive a BMW and get massages while staying home all day while her children were in school - this book has little to do with the reality of most stay at home moms. The book is well written - just definately not what I expected.
A book long overdue Jul 21, 2006
This book is long overdue and I commend the author for writing it. It's an excellent reference point for women to start with. Women have a lot to contribute and so many of us take them for granted. The title of this book is also very appropriate. If you're not sure that the author is telling you what's what then please read Untapped Wealth Discovered. This book also has very worthwhile references for women to take advantage of.
Rachel really had me laughing Jun 22, 2006
With 2 kids, it's rare that I get time to sit down and read a book, but the author had me laughing so much, I could not put the book down. Also, a lot of the entries from other contributors were very inspiring.
