An inspirational and insightful guide for those who want to get it all by doing less

For women, a glass ceiling at work is not the only barrier to success - it's also the increasing number of obligations they face once they leave the office. Women have become accustomed to delegating, advocating and negotiating for themselves in the workplace, but when it comes to managing home life, they are still juggling too many balls. A simple solution is staring them in the face: use these skills to negotiate in their personal lives.

In Drop The Ball, Tiffany Dufu urges the reader to embrace imperfection, to expect less of themselves and more from others - enabling them to flourish at work and develop deeper, more meaningful relationships at home.

MEDIA REVIEWS

We won't reach equality in the workplace without equality in the home. Drop the Ball shows how everyone benefits when men work toward equality - and how our relationships and our lives are richer when we lean in together - Sheryl Sandberg

If you could follow a path to a stronger marriage, a happier family, and greater economic and emotional security, would you be interested? I thought so. Tiffany Dufu's Drop the Ball is that path. And she's awfully good company along the way - Susan Cain

Tiffany Dufu writes with verve and wit, turning her life story into life lessons for all of us. A marvellous and instructive read! - Anne-Marie Slaughter

Drop the Ball is a must read for all women and girls. Tiffany Dufu reminds us that we must focus on what truly matters and let go of the rest. She gives us specific tools and techniques to help us achieve our goals and live authentic lives free of guilt and regret - Reshma Saujani, founder Girls Who Code

In sharing her moving personal story, Tiffany Dufu offers many practical suggestions for women to achieve their goals. But what influenced me the most about this book was the wisdom she imparts to men about how to be better partners in supporting the leadership journeys of the women in their lives. Drop the Ball is a refreshingly honest, remarkably inspiring read - Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of 'Originals' and 'Give and Take'

Drop the Ball is important, path-breaking, intimate, and brave - Gloria Steinem

Tiffany is a prominent American feminist and this is a compelling book (...) Dufu believes that in order to lean in at work, women should correspodenly lean back at home - Harper's Bazaar

Simple yet effective and helpful - Lorraine Candy, Sunday Times Magazine

While Dufu's book is about a high-achieving woman and probably resonates most with others in the same position, it's not only for women. It's for anyone used to being top of the class, to juggling every ball without letting one drop, to being put-together at all times. It's also for anyone who loves, or who shares a household with, that person. I've recommended it to friends, to coworkers, to acquaintances. As far as I'm concerned, there isn't anyone who shouldn't read Drop the Ball. - Libby kane, Business insider UK

the book isn't just for working mothers trying to figure out how to make it all actually work. It's for any young, ambitious woman, and the loved ones in her life who want to see her succeed - Lindsey Stanberry, Refinery29
