Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Spot on."

    As a female in the brewing industry who has just landed a managerial role at a relatively young age, Sheryl's words hit close to home. I'd say that the "imposter syndrome" resonated the most and is something that I live with every time I get to work. I had to force myself to accept many topics that she covered--as she pointed out, it can be hard for a woman to admit they are feminists. Even typing that is hard.

    "Good ideas on today's world for women"

    A good read/listen. Time will tell if the author's ideas make the world a more equal place to live in.

    "Great Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am happy I listened to it, rather than read it. The reader sounds very much like Sandberg and I found it was like listening to a mentor tell her story. Filled with honestly, openness and great advice, I felt the book gave me another way to view women in the workforce and how much we hold ourselves back at times. Highly recommend!

    I also think It should be required reading for all men.

    "I don't think female leader is a negative word."

    The book will be better if the author can give more example of how she work successfully in a male dominated world.

    "A Changed Woman"

    I loved every lesson in this book and started sharing the lessons on chapter 2 with my friends before I even finished . This gave me great insight on how to have and do it all with grace. But more importantly, I believe every man should read this. Thanks Sheryl for being open and honest which presented the most value in this book.

    Story
    "for anyone looking in personal success in and national success of corporate America."

    Great performance in this one. As a woman who started in education and stumbled into the male-dominated tech industry, I was resistant at first to the idea that I was ever treated different because of my gender. Unearthing my own unconscious bias has helped open up my eyes to all the work that needs to be done, and this book has shown me the vast challenges (a.k.a. opportunities) before us. For those who are at least a little aware, this book is essential in understanding a system so deeply engrained and the small yet significant changes in our thoughts and actions that we all can make. At the end of the day, this book is for anyone looking in personal success in and national success of corporate America.
