Summary
Ann-Marie Slaughter started a firestorm of headlines and heated discussions about what it means to have it all in her piece in The Atlantic in 2012. Balancing the Big Stuff focuses on what it means to "have it all" for the rest of us - those women and men with everyday jobs and life demands, who still seek satisfaction and contentment through balance. Here, Miriam Liss and Holly Schiffrin consider the obstacles that prevent families from achieving true work-family balance and methods for better parenting, better policies, and better household and work management are discussed. Clarifying what it means to be happy, and what it means to ?have it all,? Liss and Schiffrin illustrate how to achieve true contentment, outlining ways men and women can get more enjoyment and happiness both at home and the office
