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
    "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.

    Story
    "Sounded like it was read by a valley girl!"

    Story was pretty interesting. Helpful if you want a career. Not as helpful if you want to be a stay at home mom. Reader pronounces the "t" in often. Which is supposed to be silent in American English like soften. If none of that bothers you, then, it's perfect!

    "Loved it"

    Very inspiring and informative. I count myself lucky to have this balance with my husband and to have the choices in life to pursue a career and be there for my family. This book is well written and well read.

    "Pleasantly surprised"

    Based on random media impressions, I had the incorrect impression that this book was about how to get to the top in the corporate world. I had no intention of ever reading this book. Then when Sheryl unfortunately lost her husband suddenly, I got to know some about her and her background and became interested to the point that I actually bought this book. From the first 30 seconds, I was hooked. I think Sheryl has done an exceptional job in communicating two key messages:
    1. We should stop feeling guilty for compromises we make both personally and professionally because only we know the right balance for ourselves.
    2. We need to fight for what we want and speak up when something isn't working rather than feeling powerless.

    I would recommend this book to anyone!

    "I resisted this for a long time"

    Better than I expected. She makes some very good observations that put in words feelings I have had over the years about the dynamics of work for women. She offers some amount of new language.

    "Wonderful!"

    This was by far one of the best audiobooks that I have ever listened to. Sheryl Sandberg's experiences that she shared as a Corporate Executive were eye opening, engaging and inspiring to us all!

    "Amazing &inspiring! I now want to share my story!"

    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!

    "Very good down to earth book"

    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.
