As a female in the brewing industry who has just landed a managerial role at a relatively young age, Sheryl's words hit close to home. I'd say that the "imposter syndrome" resonated the most and is something that I live with every time I get to work. I had to force myself to accept many topics that she covered--as she pointed out, it can be hard for a woman to admit they are feminists. Even typing that is hard.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am happy I listened to it, rather than read it. The reader sounds very much like Sandberg and I found it was like listening to a mentor tell her story. Filled with honestly, openness and great advice, I felt the book gave me another way to view women in the workforce and how much we hold ourselves back at times. Highly recommend!
I also think It should be required reading for all men.
I loved every lesson in this book and started sharing the lessons on chapter 2 with my friends before I even finished . This gave me great insight on how to have and do it all with grace. But more importantly, I believe every man should read this. Thanks Sheryl for being open and honest which presented the most value in this book.
There were some interesting points in this book. I do not agree with everything she talks about but I believe this is an informative and helpful book for any adult.
Great performance in this one. As a woman who started in education and stumbled into the male-dominated tech industry, I was resistant at first to the idea that I was ever treated different because of my gender. Unearthing my own unconscious bias has helped open up my eyes to all the work that needs to be done, and this book has shown me the vast challenges (a.k.a. opportunities) before us. For those who are at least a little aware, this book is essential in understanding a system so deeply engrained and the small yet significant changes in our thoughts and actions that we all can make. At the end of the day, this book is for anyone looking in personal success in and national success of corporate America.
Story was pretty interesting. Helpful if you want a career. Not as helpful if you want to be a stay at home mom. Reader pronounces the "t" in often. Which is supposed to be silent in American English like soften. If none of that bothers you, then, it's perfect!
