‘A landmark manifesto’ New York Times
The ground-breaking, international bestseller – with over two million copies sold – that launched a new movement to empower women everywhere.
Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In has ignited global conversations about gender roles and ambition.
Ask most women whether they have the right to equality at work and the answer will be a resounding yes. But ask the same woman if they'd feel confident asking for a raise, promotion, or equal pay, and reticence can creep in.
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 to show how women can empower themselves, unlock top leadership roles and achieve their full potential.
Facebook COO Sandberg examines the dearth of women in major leadership positions, and what women can do to solve the problem, in this provocative tome. While acknowledging that women have made great strides in the business world, she posits that they still have a long way to go and lays out a plan for women to get there. "I have written this book to encourage women to dream big, forge a path through the obstacles, and achieve their full potential," she explains. The author's counsel gleaned from her own experiences includes suggestions for increasing self-confidence, particularly in the business world; understanding the role of mentors and how to identify them; building emotional relationships at work; not focusing on being liked; juggling marriage and children with a demanding job; and the importance of taking risks. "Hard work and results should be recognized by others, but when they aren't, advocating for oneself becomes necessary," Sandberg opines. A new generation of women will learn from Sandberg's experiences, and those of her own generation will be inspired by this thoughtful and practical book.

Best book I have read so far!
Perhaps not for sit at home country girl style but inspiring and motivating. For the ambitious fast paced witty and intelligent women out there! It's not about being career oriented and hungry for money, more about women in today's society and finding the balance in success.
A must read!
One of my favourite book, i wish every women and men read it. This books helped me realised so many little things i was doing on a daily basis that was undermining me. Definitely changed my way of working and approching life.
Not worth it...
Read this book and found it trite and a waste of time.
