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.
Apparently I live in a cave or something, because I didn't know who Sheryl Sandberg was before listening. I felt like this book helped me understand myself and the world better, and it made me feel encouraged about my future.
Sandberg strikes a good blend of research, personal experience (vulnerable, relatable, and sometimes funny), stories of friends, and ideas that pull it all together. The book was fun to listen to.
It would be nice if books like this were used for high school and college reading.
I thought the narration was pretty good.
Puts it into perspective what females go through in the workforce. Great ways to improve and promote into a higher leadership position. Women still have a long way to go to be totally accepted and welcomed in the positions of power. Slowly but surely we will get there. We need to contribute to make the strides that are needed to continue the path that was set back in the 1920's.
I've already felt many of the things Sheryl Sandberg covers in practice in the workplace. Especially the things surrounding unconscious female bias against females. I do think the narrators voice is a little grating at times.
