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.

    Story
    "Desire to lead; lack of opportunity"
    What would have made Lean In better?

    The author takes a pristine look at her life where every challenge is a lesson and every obstacle is a perfectly-navigated success. Life is a lot messier than that! I wish she'd been a lot more open about her failures. Name-dropping is always annoying, regardless of the intent.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator's voice was annoying to me and may have colored my judgement of the book. Maybe a different actor would have made the experience better for me.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The author seemed to be ignoring the fact that a lot of women don't have/haven't had her opportunities and make choices based on a very different rubric. She also pooh-pooh'd the decisions of women who, like me, step off the corporate track to raise a child. Sure, if I'd decided to stay committed to my high profile job I wouldn't be in a salary deficit today, but I don't regret putting my daughter first.

    "Good Read!"
    Where does Lean In rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high- I felt like some of it was pretty repetitive, but it kept me interested until the end. It's not super heavy on the feminist side, which I appreciated. She is more focused on balancing the playing field in life. I think I actually identified most with how she suggested that people handle their home life. To avoid gender norms in the home, and have a 50/50 chore set up no matter what the working situation is for either parent.
