by Jennifer Pate and Barbara Machen

Book Reviews

"With wit and wisdom, Jen and Barb explore the new territories that confront 21st century moms. The Mothers of Reinvention is a mom's GPS for figuring out who you are and who you want to be, a.c. (after children)."
-- Betsy Brown Braun, author of Just Tell Me What to Say

"I fell in love with Jen and Barb the minute I met them on their show. These two are the real deal: moms who made something big happen for themselves by working hard and, more importantly, knowing what they wanted. If you're one of the many moms out there who feels like you need more of you in your life, there's nobody better to help you navigate the twists and turns of reinvention."
-- Risa Green, author of Notes from the Underbelly

"Having mastered the new media of blogs and webcasts through the startlingly vibrant community of 'Mom Life,' I welcome Jen and Barb and their new book into the old fashioned world of print and paper. They understand the importance of building an identity outside of their roles as parents or partners because they have done it."
-- Wendy Mogel, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee

"The Mothers of Reinvention is a must! The real-life mommy makeover manual no mommy or bed side table should be without. Filled with innovative, honest step-by-step advice that will lead women to discover a life they are truly passionate about."
-- Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil, author of Make Up, Don't Break Up

"If any two can teach us the importance of finding passion outside of their roles and moms and wives it's Jen and Barb! After all, happy moms are more likely to raise happier kids, and what could be more important? With Jen and Barb leading the way, this book is sure to help moms of all kinds find and reinvent themselves."

-- Michele Borba, Ed.D., author of The Big Book of Parenting Solutions: 101 Answers to Your Everyday Challenges and Wildest Worries

"With grace, style and an insatiable energy, Jen and Barb use their own personal stories as moms to tell the real story about what it means to be 'mom.' They bring fresh ideas and an honest perspective to the wonderment as well as the challenges of motherhood."
-- Diana Lynn Barnes, Psy.D LMFT, author of The Journey to Parenthood: Myths, Reality and What Really Matters
