MEDIA REVIEWS
Jenny Garrett charts the rise of the female main earner (ME) in her highly engaging exploration of female breadwinners. That a fifth of women in the UK now earn more than their partners is significant, yet we hear little about this. Garrett's book illustrates why this is something we should celebrate, and yet we are resistant to do so.This book is an invaluable and inspiring source for those who will, either through choice or by chance, embark on this exciting route. She offers advice and space to reflect and challenges one of the modern day taboos. -- Mary Honeyball MEP, London MEP and Labour European spokesperson on women
From the moment I started reading Rocking Your Role I was totally absorbed, recognising so many of the issues that Jenny refers to within this clearly written and practical book. She takes the reader on a journey which makes you question so many things about yourself but in a way that energises you to step back and think about your work life balance, and the importance of being honest with yourself and those around you. It will resonate with successful women, especially those who are the female breadwinners, in all areas of life. -- Pim Baxter, Deputy Director, National Portrait Gallery
A rare and powerful book covering an immensely important subject in a personal, practical and very moving way. I was inspired by reading it and left breathless by the achievements of the author and the women whose stories she tells. -- Dr Ann Limb OBE DL, Chair, South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership
Reading this book lifted the clouds of expectations, guilt, imaginary limitations.... it liberated me to pursue my own personal dreams while still providing for my family. -- Nadine Juignet, Business Development Advisor at Hewlett Packard
This is a well researched book, that I think will meet a real need, the practical exercises are welcomed, much better than just a pile of theory. Perfect for those women struggling with being breadwinner. -- Heather McGregor, Author, Careers Advice for Ambitious Women
Jenny's insightful work is clearly founded on a deep understanding of the dynamics of relationships and careers, and on the ways in which people develop and learn, as well as on her interviews with women specifically for this book. I wish Rocking Your Role well; a book like this, should it become a top seller, will do more to transform the lives of women, and those of their partners and families, than any number of Government commissions -- Philip Whiteley, Business author
Jenny has a great writing voice and has bought a human touch to a taboo subject with great sensitivity and creativity. -- Jackee Holder, Coach, Author
Jenny is an inspirational role model and her book provides a practical guide to huge possibilities if we heed her liberating advice. I felt hugely empowered as I worked through the exercises and loved her "ego check" section. A must read book for every woman which I will buy for my dearest girl friends. -- Lynne Sedgmore CBE, Executive Director of the 157 Group of FE Colleges
