Publisher Description

Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In is a massive cultural phenomenon and its title has become an instant catchphrase for empowering women. The book soared to the top of bestseller lists internationally, igniting global conversations about women and ambition. Sandberg packed theatres, dominated opinion pages, appeared on every major television show and on the cover of Time magazine, and sparked ferocious debate about women and leadership.

Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes, but ask the same women whether they'd feel confident asking for a raise, a promotion, or equal pay, and some reticence creeps in.

The statistics, although an improvement on previous decades, are certainly not in women's favour – of 197 heads of state, only twenty-two are women. Women hold just 20 percent of seats in parliaments globally, and in the world of big business, a meagre eighteen of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women.

In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg – Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business – draws on her own experience of working in some of the world's most successful businesses and looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make the small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale.

Amazing read for EVERY female

I am only part way through the book and I can safely safe I now have a girl crush on Sheryl Sandberg... she speaks my language! Life at the top of the career jungle gym is filled with men and few opportunities for women still which is one reason why Sheryl’s points are interesting, valid, and encouraging for women - especially mothers who feel an immense pressure to stop irking and become housewives while raising their family. Loved it and I hope to see more from the author.

Great read!!

Ladies and gentlemen (yes, you too boys), read.this.book! I haven't even finished reading it and it's empowering, motivating, and insightful.

I have found an intelligent, feminist, working mother who is a true mentor. Someone I can see flashes of myself in, and aspire to build myself towards!
