This book left me thinking about how we all need to work to change our workplace/homelife culture. I don't have children myself, but that doesn't mean I don't value my personal time and this read gave me the courage and confidence to quit feeling guilty about that.
I loved it. It was very well presented. I felt a deep connection and felt as though Sheryl was talking to me. Loved how she broke up the book and how it walked through both her successes and failures and how she overcame different obstacles as a woman, as a wife, as a mother, and as an executive.
Favorite quote - “Careers are a jungle gym, not a ladder.”
I give it five stars because it was so inspirational unlike other books I've tried . I can relate to almost everything in this book. I am so amazed how many women aren't taking seriously. This book inspires you to be stronger and at that time to see your family
Overall, the points and anecdotes were valid covering a wide range of issues that women face. I rather enjoyed that the author offers support for whatever path a woman elects to pursue.
I would have like to see a chapter or section encouraging women to create or start up their own business venture as well because this is another way to lean in.

I loved the stories as well as the overall cohesive message of Lean In. It changed my perspective of gender in the workplace and at home. Great book for a work book club or MBA assignments.
