"The Part-time Paradox provides a brilliant portrayal of the discontents of the post-industrial workplace. With insight and passion, it demonstrates that achieving gender equity and family welfare requires nothing less than a fundamental restructuring of the 'time norms' that now equate work success with all consuming commitment." -- Kathleen Gerson, author of Hard Choices: How Women Decide about Work, Career, and Motherhood
"This superb study works on many levels--as first-class scholarship, as probing policy analysis, and as an extraordinary source of insight into the professional lives of men and women. A must read for all who study, love or live with the struggles of work and family." -- John Hagan, co-author of Gender and Practice
