    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.

    Claudia says: "Make your life count - no matter what you do"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Lean In the most enjoyable?

    I've never written a review before but I feel compelled to write one for this book! For all those who say that Sheryl Sandberg is too wealthy, or too intelligent, or too powerful a woman to speak for the middle and lower-class single mothers, I say BALONEY! The very reason she is able to present this message without being labeled a whiny B*%@#
    is because she is so wealthy, so intelligent, and so powerful! She has no need to fight this fight, which makes her the perfect woman to take it on.

    As a professional woman who is nearing fifty, a single mother for over a decade, and one of the first little girls to invade the all-boys little league in the 1970's, I can say that Sheryl's message is long overdue. Our generation has dropped the ball in our struggle for equality, and for the sake of our sons and daughters, our grandsons and granddaughters, we need to pick it back up and get back in the game! Despite the fact that my measly $60,000.00 annual salary will never afford me the luxury that Ms. Sandberg enjoys, reading Lean In made me realize that regardless of our station in life, our similarities are much, much greater than our differences.


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

    The story about the head lice!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have read extensively and have never felt that someone was actually speaking my very own thoughts before!


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Sheryl Sandberg, for having the audacity to speak your mind!
