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.

ok.<br />

I don't understand all the attention or controversy. I don't know...shes a filthy rich feminist who can afford a nanny. I guess that's annoying to some people. It's the smarts that bugged me. l tuned out and almost turned off the book when she described how class participation at Harvard is half your grade and professors can't use lecture notes; and how while at Harvard, she aced an exam after alot of fretting and worry while her brother aced the same exam confidently and without breaking a sweat. See? Guys just don't get wound up with self-doubt like the girls do. Yeah, I get her point. But her example made me feel like a loser. Tough to relate to. So Sandberg is a subgenius She's famous, filthy rich, thin, fit and pretty AND she's all girl power. Good for fabulous Sheryl. But shes right as rain about ladies not reaching the top like they should. Third wave feminism is cresting and still most talented women pack up the kids and leave the beach early to beat the traffic home for dinner. Alot hasn't changed. That's her point. It's STILL a man's world and it's time it wasnt. Woman still prefer being lovers over fighters. And there's still so much fighting to do. On top of everything else she has going for her. Sandberg is right. She's just a little too prissy and perfect to be someone I could know w/o feeling like a loser.

Started out interesting.

Too much on motherhood. Narrator with a voice like a little girl, high pitched, barely tolerable.
