I couldn't stop listening. I felt like my eyes were opened to the world I was seeing and feeling everyday, but not recognizing. This book helped me to understand the struggles of all women (and men!) in the workplace as well as at home and why we need not let go of our dreams.
a discussion of women in male dominated fields with a particular approach to obtaining success as supported by anecdotal evidence from both her career and her monitoring of other careers. well organized and thoughtful. hopeful and encouraging for a growth mindset. highly recommend for the female professional..
Great book, well narrated. Listened to it while traveling for work, I caught myself totally agreeing with points I see at work everyday. As a women in a male dominated field although I'm not in a leadership position but hope to be in the future. very insightful! Hope more men read this book, I will be recommending to my coworkers.
the author is obviously highly intelligent and well balanced. I had heard there was controversy surrounding the book as if she was pushing women too hard. I found the message very clear and almost soft sold. Anyone who thinks this message is controversial is stuck in the Neanderthal ages and a major part of the problem in the first place.
I have a masters degree, I've heard a lot of women debate about what to do with their careers if they want to have a family. I've heard many women discuss their professional lives in conferences and I was never satisfied with their responses.
Sheryl opened my eyes to a lot of "what could be" that nobody had shown me before.
I don't agree with everything she says, but it's ok. You don't have too, and she doesn't make you feel stupid for not agreeing.
It is engaging, funny, research based and very personal so you can connect without feeling you are being grossly manipulated (like a lot of business books out there).
Absolutely. Sheryl is so generous in her thinking and so relatable in her delivery. This is one of my favorite reads in a long while.
It didn't make me emotional.That said, I found find it very powerful and eye opening. It was a conversation starter to be sure.
Read this book. Buy it for your friends, children, colleagues. It's a great read.
Yes, I will read it again.
Elisa Donovan narrates as though it is a conversation with Sheryl Sandberg.
This book is a must read for all young people entering the workforce, both men and women!
