    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.

    Story

    This is a great book - I have it both on hard copy and in audio form. I would recommend listening to it first and then following up with the hard copy to use for reference. There is much to consider and learn from this book - for both men and women. I have recommended the book to all my female friends as well as to my male boss.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    What made the experience of listening to Unbroken the most enjoyable?

    The story itself is amazing, absolutely amazing. The narrator is great - has a way of bringing you right into the action, felt like you were there. Along the way, I learned so much about World War II - gave me an appreciation for what it really was like at that time. This is one of the top 3 audio books. You can't miss with this one.

  • Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel

    Story
    (2766)

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

    Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands.

    Any additional comments?

    The premise of the book is clever and the story itself OK. However, I found the narration to be really annoying. If I had not been stuck in the car on a long drive, I would have shut it off. I think a different narrator could have done the book a bit more justice.
