Felt like she could've said the same thing in half the time.
I'm a mom of 2 and work full time. I struggle with guilt every day bc I would rather be with my kids and work part time. I don't agree with the lean in idea for women to "be more equal to men"... I think that we shouldn't try to be equal, we should just work to be our best. Stop comparing us to men. Sorry you had those experiences, but not everyone does... Maybe it's just what you drew into your life.
Also didn't like the narrators voice. She sounded too young for me. Was looking for a more mature voice.
Say something about yourself!
This is an excellent listen for not only female professionals but any leader in corporate America. I felt like Sandberg was speaking directly to me! Very motivating and well-researched. Elisa Donovan is a good choice for narrator.
I have never felt so empowered by knowledge. The book enlightened me. It is such an important book for women, of course, but it is just as important for men. As a man I am better for reading it. This book changed me in the best possible way. READ/LISTEN TO THIS BOOK! it is amazing
Thank you Sheryl for writing this book. I am one of those who are against feminism but once realize what is the definition of feminism, all for it. Listening to this book helped me with to recognize the hesitation within me when faced with great opportunities. The guilt of working full time, balancing family and professional life, she nailed it. The research data on gender differences/ expectations in the workplace and at home. The info on the Hilda and Herold experiment. Those are all so helpful with understanding the world around and identify need for change.
It's been on my wish list for a while but I never had much interest in reading. As I'm expecting my second child and kind of stressing about how I will function and run my biz I decided the time was right to listen. It was great! A really nice perspective and very validating that you are not harming your child if you work, and are in fact helping your child. The end gets a bit mushy but a solid 4 stars.
It made me to think, "Women can succeed, if they started to go for their goals, rather than thinking of the hurdles on their way."
