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.

    "Beyond great!"

    A truly eye opening and inspirational book. I have read it before but purchase the audio book so could listen to it at work and continually be inspired. I want to achieve big things and this book helps me consider aspects of the workplace, social norms, and my gender that I. need to be mindful of to achieve my goals. Thank you Sheryl for this book.

    "Honest and balanced"

    I appreciate her validation of freedom of choice to be ambitious or to choose raising kids and her multi-perspective of men's positions in the scheme of things as relating to women and work. This book is not just for women and not just for people in careers, it's for everyone.

    "Great book to start with"
    What did you love best about Lean In?

    This was my first book to read & understand how to better position myself at my company. It uses stories to illustrate the message contained within, which makes the book even more entertaining and helps the reader better understand. I really believe that thus us a must read for women in the workplace.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "chapter 10 and 11 on point great for mothers"

    Loved the book I do not have children that I did not relate but valued the information it provided chapters 10 and 11 resonated with me most and it's insight on sexism in the workplace the information is invaluable.

    "Worthwhile read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book. Sheryl sounds like an amazing person and I think she is truly passionate about helping women "lean in". We need more people like her.


    What other book might you compare Lean In to and why?

    I recommend any book by -or about- Ayn Rand. It's about the producers in the world. Only capitalism creates wealth. Sheryl has been involved with companies that create wealth. Celebrate the producers in this world.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Deliberate Passion.

    Story
    "Time is the most valuable resource..."
    What would have made Lean In better?

    As a career oriented, successful and ambitious woman who works 50-90 hours a week (and has been for the past 18 years!) I thought I would enjoy this book. Well... I did NOT.

    All this talk about getting ahead in the rat race made me decide to make a career change - to more normal hours and prioritizing my family and friends more - by taking either on a project less here and there or even switching to something else entirely instead of squeezing it all on top of each other and the constant busy-ness.

    Life is so short, I don't just want to be a super human time organizer and task master (which a lot of the book is about), I want to enjoy it without rushing through my days. Have you ever been irritable because you were tired, stressed or occupied with work and brushed someone who cares about you off, maybe hurt them with your absence time and time again? I have.

    After losing a loved one or a family pet what I think about is the time I spent with them, not what I could afford financially or my career. Sometimes all we want is more time which money cannot buy...
