"Perfect Madness" - Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety

I love this book by Judith Warner. You can get a glimpse of it at
www.perfectmadness.net/about.html

The book discussed American mother's superwoman role today. In short, we are doing everything possible for our children, but at the same time, we lost the essential qualities like peace and happiness in our life.

While the book does not offer a solution, it does make me feel that I am not alone in mess. More importantly, I should question whether this the right thing to do. Americans are creative problem solvers. We can each find our own solution to this mess. This book gives you the support, direction and courage to find a way out.
