Review of “Chasing Superwoman”

Posted in Book Reviews tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:48 am by Christine Rice

Chasing Superwoman by Susan M. DiMickele is a fun, lighthearted book about the author’s life as a working – and religious – mom. Even though it is an easy-going read, she does uncover deep issues in an honest manner.

The book begins with an introduction and a first chapter that introduce the author to her readers, and covers what it means for her to try to be superwoman. Following are chapters on working as a lawyer, life as a mother, daily duties, involvement with school, participation in church, shopping experiences, family role models, and food. Then she discusses more deeper issues, such as: lack of relaxation, contentment, and time, as well as her role as a good mother, and what chasing superwoman is like.

I recommend this book to moms, working women, and readers who wish for a cheerful and realistic read that will make them laugh and think. DiMickele does a wonderful job at capturing her readers’ attentions by moving at a quick pace and providing lots of action. You will be happy you took the time to read this book.

You can get your own copy here. I hope you enjoy the book!
