Gutsy Mamas: Travel Tips and Wisdom for Mothers on the Road by Marybeth Bond, Travelers' Tales, Inc., San Francisco, $7.95

This pocket book about motherhood and travel is based on the premise that mothering is a hard, often undervalued job, and moms are entitled to seek guilt-free adventures - with or without the kids. Chapters offer tips for traveling with infants, teenagers, grandparents, alone, pregnant, even traveling to adopt a child. Quotes from road-savvy mothers add personal insights and experiences.

On our own terms: portraits of women business leaders by Liane Enkelis and Karen Olsen, with Marion Lewenstein, Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Inc., San Francisco, $19.95

True, more women are rising to senior management positions today, but precious few make it to the very top. Frustrated by the still-intact glass ceiling, the authors compiled 18 inspirational stories of women who reached that ultimate pinnacle. Subjects include Kathy Taggares, president of K. T.'s Kitchens; Ruth M. Owades, president of Calyx & Corolla; and Elaine Chao, president and CEO of the United Way of America.
