Audiobook wise, the narrator sounded a tad robotic to me but this was my first audiobook so I wasn't sure what to expect.
As for the content; I have been doing a lot of reading lately about gender bias in the workplace and Sheryl has opened my eyes even more. I appreciated how well-structured and clear her thoughts were and how she backed them up with research. She gave me tons to think about and I imagine it will forever colour the way I approach my career.
The writing is engaging and keeps you involved in her story.
The way I related to it and the distinctive focus on leadership by women not just executive placement
Reading, or should I say "devouring"
This book, I am feeling a sense of individual power that I never thought possible. My life has now been given a purpose and being me is just fine.
I loved it - i hope this gets into the hands of women everywhere. Also a great read for supportive husbands that have hard working wives. It helps them underdstand the workplace issues and internal issues we deal with daily. Thank you for this inspiring book!
Yes. This book takes a look at some of the "mind blocks" women can have when they think about their careers. The book also talks about the importance of women in the workplace supporting each other.
This book helped me through a challenging transition at work. It was my bible to keep it together. Helped me do away with "mom guilt'. It guides you to appreciate your life choices and be ok with what you can do, can't do and want to do.
A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!
I went into this book with trepidation. After all, I didn't want to hear a feminist tell me that either I could, or could not, "have it all." Instead what I experienced was a personal and insightful book about the limitations we as women often put on ourselves, such as the expectations we set for ourselves, our failure to speak-up, and the divisive way we often treat one another.
Sandberg shared her experiences, and those of others she talked to. When offering a generality she even provided her own counterexamples, when such a thing existed. Her writing is not judgmental, but rather enlightening. She opened my eyes to some of my own behaviors and attitudes.
I recommend this book, especially to women in leadership roles.
Loved the book, pity about the narration. Her overly youthful voice and tendency to emphasize too many words makes this well written and important book seem like an overwrought college essay. I suggest reading it or waiting until it comes out with another narration.
