In an increasingly perilous environment, the promise of order amidst chaos is so tantalizing.  Every busy woman will recognize herself in Gill’s striving—if we just get through  our to-do list of achievements and improvements, we can get our lives under control …  can’t we? The illusion of perfection is a powerful motivator, propelling so many of us at  a breakneck pace toward somewhere other than where we are right now.
