    Work-Life balance is one of the most misused words these days. People equate it to leaving work early, having time on hand to go shopping in between work hours and whatnot. I am sure this book will bust some myths. Thanks for sharing Corinne!

    These days, employees use a word called ‘smart working’. No long working hours, but more work done in less time efficiently with one or 2 coffee breaks and without compromising on leaves and family time. Really, this is very important topic to lead a stress-free life. Definitely, I would like to read this book and know the author’s perspective.

    I am sure this book has some amazing insights into how we can manage our lives better. Having said that, there are many out there who (amazingly) manage their lives efficiently in spite of doing more work than most of us do!
