Based on random media impressions, I had the incorrect impression that this book was about how to get to the top in the corporate world. I had no intention of ever reading this book. Then when Sheryl unfortunately lost her husband suddenly, I got to know some about her and her background and became interested to the point that I actually bought this book. From the first 30 seconds, I was hooked. I think Sheryl has done an exceptional job in communicating two key messages:
1. We should stop feeling guilty for compromises we make both personally and professionally because only we know the right balance for ourselves.
2. We need to fight for what we want and speak up when something isn't working rather than feeling powerless.
I would recommend this book to anyone!
Better than I expected. She makes some very good observations that put in words feelings I have had over the years about the dynamics of work for women. She offers some amount of new language.
This was by far one of the best audiobooks that I have ever listened to. Sheryl Sandberg's experiences that she shared as a Corporate Executive were eye opening, engaging and inspiring to us all!
I loved it! it showed me that I am an anomaly and that I should share my story in order for others to believe in themselves and believe that it is possible to achieve any goal you really want to achieve!
A book worth reading or listening to.
A lot of common sense, also gives you courage to embrace life, also knowing that you are not the only one that is having difficulties and that in the end it is all worth it. What I like the most is that we need to be happy with our decisions and we beed to make them thinking thoroughly about everything.
