I am a woman with a career and a family, of the same generation as Sheryl Sandberg. So much if this book resonated with me and some of it made me think a lot about my own attitudes. It made me realise how much I have had to fight all my life to be a 'person' entitled to make choices based on my skills, desires and talents as well as the choices society would like to dictate to me about being a woman and a mother. There Is a lot of food for thought here for women and men. It does not condemn women who stay at home and choose not to work but highlights that all adults should be able to choose how they run their family lives and who stays at home and who works. It is backed up by studies into gender difference at all ages and is easy to read. The only thin
G this book threatens is where we get our 'norms' from and whether we accept or ignore the ongoing injustices against women and the marginalization of men in the home even in our so called liberal societies. Thank you Sheryl for writing this book!

this is fun music, great to listen to in the car, from a man who believes in happiness and having a great time. It has grown on me over the summer and one of the two albums I played all the time!

This was a great guide book, I did tear the map out to use it, so a detachable one would have been better! But good information, lovely pictures.
