    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    "Mixed Feelings"

    Story
    What did you like best about Lean In? What did you like least?

    I liked the honesty of what she was sharing. I don't know if what she has felt is what the majority or the minority of women are feeling. The issue of not having enough women in technology is very real, but many of the female technical leaders I have met are very confident and strong. What I'm conflicted with is if there are real things, as she called out, masked from me and my perspective since I am a man. I have a 15 year old daughter and I hope that she is not feeling these same things, but after listening to this book, I will be observing her and asking these questions. Secondly, I am hosting a women in technology quarterly meeting in my team. All of the women in the team will share their perspectives and hopefully educate me on reality. I'm looking forward to clarifying or changing my "mixed feelings" about this book and this issue.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lean In?

    The mention of people that I know of or have worked with in the industry and their influence or engagement with Sheryl in her career.


    What three words best describe Elisa Donovan’s performance?

    Engaging and enjoyable.


    Do you think Lean In needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Is what she is feeling the same for the majority or minority of women out there? The stage has been set, now her data driven approach should be able to quantify this.

    No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.

    Carrie says: "I want more of Harry!"
    "I can't get enough of Butcher!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Small Favor to be better than the print version?

    I believe audiobooks are 10 times better than print version. The reader gives you more dimension to the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dresdin himself. He is just a cool cat who gets into incredible messes and somehow gets out of them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to get the next book. I hope he keeps writing more in this series.
