a must read book for both genders
Deal with millions of Chicks, for a living. Photographer. Traveller, Tech Buff, love APPLE, Steve Jobs.
Was worth listening/reading. Got some important and well needed perspective.
I would say most of the points are relevant to all, especially all who are under represented, low on confidence & discriminated. That said I accept & appreciate her fight for more respect, rights and opportunities for women
I related to so many concepts and experiences in this book - it was refreshingly validating. The new concepts and recommendations rang true for me as well. Loved it. I tell every working woman I know about this book now.
Just finished Lean In. Very impressed with Ms. Sandberg's call to action. Efficiency and effectiveness both at the workplace and home starts with teamwork and respect.
Majority of this book really felt as if it had been written for me - I am a new mum with a career which is about to hit the heights - along with trying I balance selling a home, let alone running it.... All the things I spent my time doing like exercise, seeing friends etc seem like an impossible task - this book doesn't give you the magic ingredient but it really does help you out things into perspective. I even listened to a few chapters with my husband, who equally felt this very interesting and beneficial. I have come away from listening to this more confident I can do this and more importantly confident I can do them both, I just have to be honest with myself and not try and do everything alone... What do I really need to do and what can be delegated..... I don't have a support network around me but I do have a husband who wants to help so go on read this book male or female it will really help if you are like most people trying to balance the challenges of life!!!! Thanks Sheryl.. You have genuinely helped
A must read for all women who aspire to greatness in the workplace. When I went to work after staying home with kids for many years, I was struck by how few women I could count as colleagues. In college, I was certainly not outnumbered... Why was I now outnumbered at work?
Sandberg addressed my myriad questions and addressed them well. I now have hope and direction and feel better equipped to navigate the challenges of a male dominated work place.
I really enjoyed this book. Some of the data is depressing (lots of research on gender inequality) but I was motivated and inspired to do more with my career. I thought the narrator did a nice job at injecting feeling and emphasis and the pace was good. I plan to give this book to others, I think it is that important. I wish men would listen to this book too!
Could not have purchased this with better timing as a mid-20-something finishing grad school and starting her career. Will definitely listen to this as a reminder any time I don't feel strong enough or qualified enough to "sit at the table"
Life long student of life.
I can't say enough how much I related to Sheryl's own experiences in school and in the professional world. Her candid insights and encouragement to "lean in" is very motivating. I honestly felt that the reassurance she provided made me feel more confident in my decision making process.
The only chapter I did not relate to was one aimed at working moms. This is only because I'm not at that stage in my life, but it was interesting to hear this perspective and the arguments she presented for both the working mom and stay at home mom.
I plan to buy this book for the young ladies in my office as a gift.
