Summary:

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.

    I liked how they made it for anyone to listen to and be relatable. I’m implementing what I took away from this book already.

    Great read. It opened my mind on the gender differences in Corporate America.

  • Eva Adam

    First I was afraid it is another one of those books that will only focus on how men and society don't treat women equally at work. Luckily it has shown a great mirror into what are the things we do to help create that and what are the things we can change in ourselves. Changing society one female leader at a time. Very insightful.

    Was a great book to read. More relevant and inspiring than the first time I read it!

  • Emily Thacker

    Incredibly eye-opening in helping me understand my own tendencies. It also made me aware of how to totally look at some of my female colleges through a gender biased lens. The first half of the book was more intriguing to me--but I still enjoyed the whole thing. Appropriate for women and men!

  • Kate Twelker

    Eye-opening. Really changed the way I look at my career track, my upbringing, and how I parent my daughter.

    I loved this book! Practical, relevant and fascinating. A must-read for women in the workplace.
