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.
Lean In - Sheryl Sandberg's provocative, inspiring book about women and power - grew out of an electrifying TED talk Sandberg gave in 2010, in which she expressed her concern that progress for women in achieving major leadership positions had stalled. The talk became a phenomenon and has since been viewed nearly 2,000,000 times. In Lean In, she fuses humorous personal anecdotes, singular lessons on confidence and leadership, and practical advice for women based on research, data, her own experiences, and the experiences of other women of all ages. Sandberg has an uncanny gift for cutting through layers of ambiguity that surround working women, and in Lean In she grapples, piercingly, with the great questions of modern life. Her message to women is overwhelmingly positive. She is a trailblazing model for the ideas she so passionately espouses, and she's on the pulse of a topic that has never been more relevant.

I loved it! it showed me that I am an anomaly and that I should share my story in order for others to believe in themselves and believe that it is possible to achieve any goal you really want to achieve!
A book worth reading or listening to.
A lot of common sense, also gives you courage to embrace life, also knowing that you are not the only one that is having difficulties and that in the end it is all worth it. What I like the most is that we need to be happy with our decisions and we beed to make them thinking thoroughly about everything.
A must for all leaders to read! The book gives you a new lens to look through regarding gender and partnerships at home and at work.
Would have preferred to hear it from Sheryl Sandberg.
As a working woman with great ambition to continue working while raising kids, this book was just what I needed to maintain that drive.
I enjoyed listening to the author's experiences and advice on leadership and the way it is for women leaders. A particularly good read for women with families and children.
Thank you Sheryl for sharing !! We need more of that from leadership . This book made me realize I have been auk get it too safe and need to get on the jungle gym to progress in my career.
