Featuring an interview with acclaimed author and cultural observer Judith Warner, this ABC News program conveys the perspective of an American mother who has done much of her parenting outside the United States. Warner discusses her book Perfect Madness and its observations about the hectic, competitive lifestyle embraced by many American moms-a lifestyle increasingly fraught with anger and depression. While the author and three other mothers provide insight on a personal, emotional level, Warner's analysis of women on the edge raises political and cultural questions that are worthy of every American's consideration.
"Offers an excellent entry point for a discussion of the problems that beset families."—Anthropology Review Database<br> <br> "This news segment would be suitable for school and academic library collections with collections related to women's studies, parenting. Recommended."—Educational Media Reviews Online
