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.

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.
This book was inspiring at times and at times I felt like I didn't need another person telling me I was over-extended. The mentoring chapter was refreshing upbeat and contained great advice for all employees.
An absolute encouragement to both men and women! And a beautiful insight to her amazing late husband Dave Goldberg and his contributions to her beliefs and success! This is a must read!
I'm going to get this for all of my managers and supervisors to read! Excellent for both men and women. Truly has great insights for increasing opportunities for women.
This book definitely met my expectations. As a husband, father and manager, this book is an inspiration. Great insight and call to action to make a positive difference in our community, workplace and society.
If you are woman, man, manager, parent, working parent, stay at home parent, soon to be parent, or just a person interested in equality for all... READ THIS BOOK!
When I started reading the book I was like this does not pertain to me at all. But I made a commitment to finish it. I recommend this book to both men and women. You will have the opportunity to learn about yourself.
Sheryl Sandberg is an inspiration. She is very well spoken, witty, and humorous. If I am half the leader she is today I will consider myself extremely fortunate.
