The #1 international best seller
In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg reignited the conversation around women in the workplace.
Sandberg is chief operating officer of Facebook and coauthor of Option B with Adam Grant. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TED talk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which has been viewed more than six million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.
Lean In continues that conversation, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to change the conversation from what women can’t do to what they can. Sandberg provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career. She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment, and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women both in the workplace and at home.
Written with humor and wisdom, Lean In is a revelatory, inspiring call to action and a blueprint for individual growth that will empower women around the world to achieve their full potential.
Excellent Book!!!! One of the few books I finished...... Thank you Sheryl. This book open my understanding not only about woman but myself. I relate with Sheryl in many of her examples. Loved it!! High recommend for everyone.
Informative yet easy read
Throughly enjoyed listening to this book, Sheryl gives great examples AND facts to how to deal externally and internally with your career and home. Especially how to balance both - it was always a worry of mine on how I will juggle my career and personal life (including and excluding children, partner, and anything else). This book smoothes the worry or concern over, can't explain how great this has been for my professional life.
Disappointed, was hoping for more.
This was clearly written by Sheryl for Sheryl, who wants to have author on her resume. VERY little for anyone to actually take away and use, it’s more of something soothing to listen to if you feel you’ve been wronged or passed over (and sadly, this is enough for a lot of people). One of the least helpful books I bought in a LONG time. If it didn’t have Sheryl’s name on it, it wouldn’t have sold at all.
