'The best parenting book you've never heard of.' - Anne Karpf, The 'Guardian' 'Naomi Stadlen writes with understanding, deep insight and humour. This is truly woman-to woman.' - Sheila Kitzinger, childbirth educator, mother 'I wish I'd had this book years ago - to show to bosses who didn't understand, to friends who couldn't grasp why I was permanently tired, and even to myself - to know that I wasn't the only one who wished for an extra eight hours in the day.' - Anne Diamond, television presenter, mother
