Michelle : a biography by Liza Mundy( Book )

50 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 16 languages and held by 2,851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Washington Post writer Liza Mundy paints a revealing and intimate portrait of the most dynamic couple in politics today: Michelle, the highly organized, sometimes intimidating, list-making pragmatist; and Barack, the introspective political charmer who shoots for the stars. Michelle's story carries all the achievements and lingering pain of the post-civil rights era. She grew up on the south side of Chicago, in a neighborhood rocked by white flight. She went to Harvard Law School, became a corporate lawyer, then left to train community leaders. She can be funny and sharp-tongued, warm and blunt, empathic and demanding. Her relationship with Barack, like many couples with two careers and two children, has been strained at times by his political climb. In this carefully reported biography, drawing upon interviews with more than one hundred people, including one with Michelle herself, Mundy captures the complexity of this remarkable woman and the remarkable life she has lived.--From publisher description
Code girls : the untold story of the American women code breakers of World War II by Liza Mundy( Book )

16 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 2,384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recruited from small Southern towns and posh New England colleges, 10,000 American women served the U.S. Army and Navy as code breakers during World War II. While their brothers and husbands took up arms, these women moved to Washington and, under strict vows of secrecy, learned the meticulous work of breaking German and Japanese military codes. Poring over reams of encrypted messages, the women worked tirelessly in makeshift facilities in Washington, D.C.; Arlington, Virginia; and Dayton, Ohio. Their code-breaking triumphs shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them. In the process, many got their first taste of the big city, made lifelong friends, and fell in and out of love amid the heartbreak of war. Ordered never to reveal the details of their wartime work, these women were all but written out of history. Now, through her dazzling archival research and interviews with surviving code breakers, Liza Mundy has brought to life this vital story of American courage, service, and science. At the heart of Code Girls is Dot Braden, a feisty Virginia schoolteacher who, in 1943, leapt at the chance to take a mysterious job with the Army at a place called Arlington Hall. With [this book], the children and grandchildren of Dot and those of thousands of other women will finally learn the complete story of their accomplishments."--Dust jacket flap
Everything conceivable : how assisted reproduction is changing men, women, and the world by Liza Mundy( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skyrocketing infertility rates and the accompanying explosion in reproductive technology are revolutionizing the American family and changing the way we think about parenthood, childbirth, and life itself. In this work of investigative reporting, journalist Mundy captures the human narratives, as well as the science, behind what is today a controversial, multibillion-dollar industry, and examines how the huge social experiment that is assisted reproduction is transforming our most basic relationships and even our destiny as a species.--From publisher description
The richer sex : how the new majority of female breadwinners is transforming sex, love, and family by Liza Mundy( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revolution is under way. Within a generation, more households will be supported by women than by men. In this book the author takes us to the frontier of this new economic order. She shows us why this flip is inevitable, what painful adjustments will have to be made along the way, and how both men and women will feel surprisingly liberated in the end. Couples today are debating who must assume the responsibility of primary earner and who gets the freedom of being the slow track partner. With more men choosing to stay home, she shows how that lifestyle has achieved a higher status, and the ways males have found to recover their masculinity. And the revolution is global: she takes us from Japan to Denmark to show how both sexes are adapting as the marriage market has turned into a giant free-for-all, with men and women at different stages of this transformation finding partners who match their expectations. This book is an analysis of the most important cultural shift since the rise of feminism: the coming era in which women will earn more than men, and how this will change work, love, and sex
