the author is obviously highly intelligent and well balanced. I had heard there was controversy surrounding the book as if she was pushing women too hard. I found the message very clear and almost soft sold. Anyone who thinks this message is controversial is stuck in the Neanderthal ages and a major part of the problem in the first place.
I have a masters degree, I've heard a lot of women debate about what to do with their careers if they want to have a family. I've heard many women discuss their professional lives in conferences and I was never satisfied with their responses.
Sheryl opened my eyes to a lot of "what could be" that nobody had shown me before.
I don't agree with everything she says, but it's ok. You don't have too, and she doesn't make you feel stupid for not agreeing.
It is engaging, funny, research based and very personal so you can connect without feeling you are being grossly manipulated (like a lot of business books out there).
Absolutely. Sheryl is so generous in her thinking and so relatable in her delivery. This is one of my favorite reads in a long while.
It didn't make me emotional.That said, I found find it very powerful and eye opening. It was a conversation starter to be sure.
Read this book. Buy it for your friends, children, colleagues. It's a great read.
Yes, I will read it again.
Elisa Donovan narrates as though it is a conversation with Sheryl Sandberg.
This book is a must read for all young people entering the workforce, both men and women!

It would change the world in a positive way if all men and all women began to practice some of the ideas that are shared by Sheryl Sandberg.
So many great tips that I would definitely listen again - with a notebook this time - so I could jot all of the tips down!
Obviously my favorite character was Sheryl Sandberg as this book was choc full of anecdotes from her professional career.
I wouldn't listen to this in one sitting just because there are SO MANY great tips to try and absorb.
Entering my 8th year of my career, I was feeling apathetic toward my job. This book invigorated me and recharged my confidence levels. I put her advice into practice immediately and have been LEANING IN!
