Listening to this book provoked some good thought and I agree with the author's premise that women should have a strong network, or "inner circle" of trusted professional mentors and friends. However, I kept hoping for greater depth.
No - ryckman got the point across: women now, more than ever, need to advocate for each other and themselves; "sitletto networks" can be the springboard for professional advances
Would like to have heard "higher profile" case studies or evidence advancing the premise
Narrator's accents were horrible, made me want to cringe.
Shortcomings of the performance aside, I enjoyed the book after binge-watching the TV show and trying to determine which characters and story lines were real vs. created for the TV show. I'd hoped there'd be more commentary on the US justice system made in the book (opposed to the show) and perhaps some call to action by the author - but alas, this is Kerman's memoir based on her experiences whilst in prison not an explicit diatribe.
Probably the best one yet. The author says it best in his preface, to paraphrase, Conroy didn't set out to write a best seller, but the narrator, Frank Muller made it a work of art.
You go girl
The performance was adequate, however I much would have preferred to hear it read by the author. Lean In is a personal piece, I wish to have heard it in the authors voice
As a young woman in business I felt this book to be very relatable on a professional and personal level (I see in myself many qualities, desires and yes, flaws too, that are discussed). Ms Sandberg took a calculated risk joining Facebook and hearing her story,her reflections on leadership, success, women and business were thought provoking and inspiring
This book goes beyond the normal discussion of the case and the bystander effect to reveal anecdotes rarely otherwise mentioned and very much unknown, including the unbelievable backstory on the murderer.
