Sometimes what ails you at work is what ails you at home. If you have ever worked from home (or thought about it) pick up Life's Work: Confessions of an Unbalanced Mom by Lisa Belkin. She'll stop you before you do great damage to yourself. Belkin, the author of the witty weekly Life's Work column in The New York Times, exposes the myths and joys of work, family and the balancing act that almost every woman tries to perform before realizing that it's all just too much. With humor and happiness, Belkin describes the exacting way her kids and even her dog took all control from her life. They left her with a little time to work at the computer and a lot of time to clean up and make dinner for them. After Life's Work you'll never look at life and work the same way again.
