An updated edition of a standard in its field that remains relevant more than 20 years after its original publication.
More than 20 years ago, sociologist and University of California, Berkeley, professor Arlie Hochschild set off a tidal wave of conversation and controversy with her best-selling book, The Second Shift. In it, she examined what really happens in dual-career households. Adding together time in paid work, child care, and housework, she found that working mothers put in a month of work a year more than their spouses. Updated for a workforce now half female, this edition cites a range of new studies and statistics and includes a new afterword in which Hochschild assesses how much - and how little - has changed for women today.

Not helpful for working parents
I was expecting some form of help or guidance from this book as a working parent. But the book is a divisive anti Dad rant and provides no help for struggling families. Terrible waste of time.
