"When new mother Marissa Mayer took the reins at Yahoo then banned employees working from home, and Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook chief operating officer, told women to "lean in," the conversation about how to handle the demands of both home and work became impassioned."

Wow, that's someone who loves to work! I have often wondered about how much I could accomplish if I only had to sleep a couple of hours a night. I would definitely get an enormous amount done...right up to the point I keeled over at an earlier-than-I-should-have age?!!
