KIRKUS REVIEW

Mrs. Benjamin is shorter on statistics, career opportunities, etc. than Dorothy Cotton who made a Case For The Working Mother last year (Stein & Day) but she's much less skimpy on all the irksome details of that two way stretch which could easily make you say Is this an existence? It may not pay you well and it costs more in service, clothes, and something called ""convenience foods"" which any guilty (she writes quite a bit about guilt) mother knows might be a TV dinner. As for your husband-- there's only one thing he can do better than you, make you feel good, and anything else you shouldn't ask him to do. However, with the help of 50 write-ins, she gives a chatty account of handling your help, illness, the sacrifices (what doesn't get done), etc. Both depth and length-wise, this is midway between the magazine article and a book and the tone-- it's McCall's or Redbook, semi-sophisticated.
