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.

well stated argument of inclusion for all groups

As a minority in corporate America, the feelings and accounts shared by Sheryl are relatable. While I felt empathy, I also enjoyed the lessons in career management. I have already begun recommending this book to a diverse set of professionals.

Very inspirational

As a women in engineering for over 25 years, I really appreciate hearing my experiences reflected so accurately and poignantly. Many of these issues are water under the bridge for me, but I am inspired to do better by the women (and men) following in my footsteps. Thank you!

Tough book at some points to listen to.

If you could sum up Lean In in three words, what would they be?

As a male reader of this book it seems like there were points in the book that seemed a bit offensive. However, just kept a very open mind and a realization of a female perspective in the work force. It was a well written book for the most part and am very happy to have invested the time and money in listening to this book. I would imagine it would be very inspiring for a female.

Any additional comments?

Great book. Worth the read as a male.
