Thought provoking, researched
Someone with a more mature/soothing voice. Elisa's voice was slightly nasal and sounded very young. I felt that it didn't suite the material. It was more of a distraction.
It's so thought prevoking and the statistics alone are worth hearing. It's amazing to me that Sandberg got so much crticisim when the introduction literally covers and acknowledges the book's flaws (directed towards indvidual control rather than larger policy or systematic issues; not applicable towards lower income women; parts of her life are unrelatable...). I absolutely recommend this book to all ages, all genders.
I finished this book in two days. It really was an eye opener for me to see the struggles that women still face in the professional circles. Sheryl's story was encouraging and engaging. Her professional insights were very helpful for me personally.
It also makes me see the importance of supporting my wife not only as a professional woman but at home.
Thank you for this.
This book is telling the story of my life as if it's been following me around like reality TV cameras! Sandberg speaks truth to the situation that many of us face in the workplace. My only wish is that I could blast the audio here in the office in hopes that a few of my peers could hear!
Listened to the audio book while commuting. Every woman, young and old, working or not, should read it, as well as the men who love them. Lots of important gems on how we all need to break through internal and external barriers, fully participate, and become the person we want to be.
I'm a photographer who loves reading non-fiction. I gravitate towards bios and memoirs and love learning more about business & creativity.
Yes! I would listen again because there were so many quotes, and inspiring stories that I want to be able to share with others.
Sheryl Sandberg. :) I think I was intimidated by her position and education at first, but soon realized that she is a real woman with her own fears, and insecurities who is always open to improvement. Not being in the corporate world myself, I was thrilled to know there are people like her who promote equality at work AND at home.
Not yet. But I hope to!
Wasn't sure I would benefit from this book, as I am not in the corporate world, but I found it to be very beneficial Just as Sheryl stated, we all need to support each other in whatever path we choose in life, whether it be a stay-at-home Mom or Dad, or a CEO of a Fortune 500 company. This goes equally for women as well as men.
Yes, my friends and I are very busy women and playing this on my audiobook helps expedite the process.
The book organizes thoughts I've already had and empowers my ideas thoroughly.
Elisa brings more power to Sandberg's words.
Excellent book. I regularly talk with other women about this book. It is very inspirational. The narrator is good. Great book for businessmen too.
