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.
I am a mother of two about to return to work in a leadership role. Becoming a working mother does not make you less of a mother. Both roles are important and needed.
This book has truly inspired me. I will read this book again and again as a reminder that I should help other women, be mindful of my own bias, and that my personal and professional success will inspire my daughter.
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..
