"I'm a longtime fan of Laura Vanderkam's insightful work--her
recommendations for getting the most out of every day are often
counterintuitive but always realistic and manageable. In her new
book, she reveals the time management strategies that highly
successful mothers use to build lives that work. Thanks to her
findings, I'll never look at my weekly calendar the same way
--GRETCHEN RUBIN, author of Better Than Before and The Happiness Project "For many years I've wanted to see reflected in our collective conversation what I know to be true in women's lives: that many of us are happily combining work and motherhood, and loving both. Laura Vanderkam has written the book that's been sorely missing, and she does so with an impassioned, eloquent voice, important new research, and the warmth of a dear friend."

--DORIE CLARK, author of Reinventing You and Stand Out "This book could have been titled How to Be a Superhero, because that's how it makes you feel and act after reading it.

Packed with research from real lives and tips for real change, this book is sure to help women around the world discover their own path to success."
--JON ACUFF, author of Do Over "In this engrossing and eternally helpful book, Laura Vanderkam shares valuable insights from women who have mastered their most vital resource: time. I Know How She Does It stands apart thanks to Vanderkam's nuanced understanding of what it takes to become an efficient-yet-balanced individual."
--TIM SANDERS, author of Love Is the Killer App "As a busy CEO, I was inspired by the hundreds of people Vanderkam studied who found ample time for career, family, and self in the same 168 hours available to everyone, each week. If my entire team read this book, we would all benefit."
