Although Tradeoffs is a novel, it's based on a 1980 study of 60 successful women by this author, published as "Women on Top: Success Passages and Personal Growth.

Jane Addams pushed to open up the National American Woman Suffrage Association to working women, the same women who were her colleagues in the National Women's Trade Union League.

Whether it's the 1880s, the 1980s, or even 2015, we ladies face a lot of choices--most of them tradeoffs. Jane Adams, a licensed therapist and life coach, builds on her professional expertise to create a fascinating and touching novel of three women struggling to manage their tradeoffs. And where else but in glamorous and competitive Manhattan? Here's a thoughtful and entertaining read that clarifies why everyone believes that if you make it here, you'll make it anywhere.
This was a fabulous reading experience! I LOVED her characters - women you'd want as your best friends - and was surprised that it was set in the u80's in New York - this could be about the lives of working women today. Must read this author's other novels!
I liked this read because Jane Adams makes the substance of her behavioral books over the years come alive in fiction. For as long as she has been writing - and longer - this discussion (male point of view) or issue (woman point of view) of glassceiling-havingitall-withermyovaries has raged on about me and to no one's surprise there is still no mandate on gender norms of any kind. I feel like a know these women. What I did not expect was for their journeys to give me some fresh rails to our new world of what I'll term Bruce Gender attitude adjustments. The characters in this book aid in attitude adjustment.

Reading this book with a female book club would be a hoot. Jane's girls feel like women who articulate pretty well their core issues. When you sort of push the three women together it feels like the most meaningful parts of glassceiling-havingitall-withermyovaries are solved if only because Jane created characters who worked the problem. It didn't dawn on me I was engaging with the sociological bits until I brought it up to a woman friend later.

Good character development . surprisingly current observations. Are we all still facing these challenges.? Reassuring in a way to share
The theme of this novel is spot on! Even with all our 'leaning in", women were and still are making huge compromises and trade-offs. Set in the 80s in Manhattan, this book gives us completely believable characters, in a world that is simultaneously exciting and mundane, funny and tragic, uplifting and completley exacerbating. Reading it today, it feels more relevant than ever.
This is a great book for women AND the men with whom they live and work on a daily basis.
Trade Offs-- the perfect name for this ride of a novel as it deals with three women launching into life with today's complicated choices of balancing career, love, family and kids. We follow the three friends sharing a brownstone in hip Brooklyn, each with careers on the rise, baggage of love, sex, and one with a kid. Can you have it all? What comes first, second, third? Yup, what are the trade offs in today's world where neither traditional families nor feminists get to decide? Jane Adams does a great balancing act of her own getting us inside the hearts and minds of each, their interactions with one another, their lovers and the world, and happily keeping us off-balance wondering and caring about where each will go. A novel of the moment !!
Tradeoffs is a book for the women who named the glass ceiling and for their daughters and granddaughters who are still bumping into it. Adams has been a keen and engaging observer of women for three decades who knows that only women in perfume commercials have it all. She introduces us to three memorable women who make their choices--and mistakes-- with humor, smarts and with tough and tender hearts."
The more things change, the more they stay the same. I liked the characters in this book and found the women relateable. This is a wonderful summer read.
