      Really good overview about how the "opting out" is highly fantasized and glorified and doesn't account for women who are not upper class highly educated who get forced out of their working positions because of poor maternity leave policies and other issues. It's a collection of reports, so some of it was a little boring. Fantastic read though to balance out some of the biased journalism online about "opting out"

      Though the book was published in 2012, it only uses ONE source published within the five years prior to publishing. The articles/chapters (whatever) are not entirely appropriate to the times.
