As work demands more of employees' time, many are asking: How can I earn a living while making sure my family doesn't fall behind? In her new book, Finding TimeThe Economies of Work-Life Conflict (Harvard University Press), Heather Boushey argues that resolving work-life conflicts is as vital for individuals and families as it is essential for realizing the country's productive potential.

Her research has been published in academic journals; she writes regularly for popular media, including The New York Times’ “Room for Debate,” The Atlantic, and Democracy; and she makes frequent television appearances on Bloomberg, MSNBC, CNBC, and PBS.
