Overdrive is a common physical and emotional state for women at various stages of their life -- whether they're in their 20s and starting a career, in their 30s and 40s trying to balance growing a family with work, or in their 50s and 60s caring for elderly parents, and seeking simplification as they age.
Women in Overdrive takes a comprehensive look at the busy culture we live in and examines the ways in which women are not encouraged to relax or take time for themselves. Nora Isaacs identifies ways in which women of all ages can avoid the most common roads to burnout and offers suggestions for creating balance and simplifying even the busiest set of circumstances.
A Gen Xer, Isaacs took her inspiration from her mother. She looked around and saw that women, though aging well, were not slowing down one bit. She started talking to women her age, her mother's age, and women in between. Ultimately, Isaacs shows women how to take care of themselves so that they'll remain active and take advantage of their body's natural resources, no matter what their age.
