Book on four-day workweek?

I'm looking for a good book or two about the advantages (and disadvantages) of a four-day workweek (implementing, too). I'd also like to get the title of one that I read around 1980 (I think).

A friend of mine runs a small non-profit and is thinking about offering a four-day workweek to her staff. I read a good book about this around 1980 (I think) - very popular, perhaps one of the first on the subject (by a woman author, I think; I remember no other details, other than it being a paperback).
I'm interested in the title of that book, but, more importantly, I'd like a recommendation for a book or two to give to my friend to help her understand the advantages and disadvantages of this option, and how best to implement it if she goes that route.
[I'd really prefer a book recommendation to, say, a website recommendation, and am NOT looking for a discussion of the pros and cons here. Recommendations for pamphlets or other written materials would also be fine.]
