Why Some Men Pretend to Work 80-Hour Weeks - HBR
Interesting research into the sort of place where you're expected to be available all the time and work all the hours. Some successful men found ways to "pass" i.e. to appear they were hard workers while finding time for other things (like their families). Women tended to ask explicitly for allowances to be made for child care and their careers suffered for it.

'In the middle of the operation, my colleague said he had to go – it was his home time' - Telegraph
"Senior doctor Tony Strong, 37, works an 80-hour week, despite a recent European ruling that it should be no more than 48." Mr Strong is against the European working time directive, but I'm not convinced that a return to knackered junior doctors treating patients is a good thing either.
