"A landmark manifesto" (New York Times)
"Lively, entertaining, urgent, and yes, even courageous … Lean In is both a radical read and incredibly accessible … While it’s obvious that women have much to gain from reading Sandberg’s book, so do men – perhaps even more so" (Guardian)
"A brave book to write … direct, funny and critical" (The Economist)
"The business manual of the year" (The Times)
"Any woman should welcome Lean In as a guide to cracking the glass ceiling" (Independent)

Top Customer Reviews
I do at times find the examples in this book felt a bit antiquated or did not really apply to me. E.g. I don't feel scared to sit at a table full of men, wait to be called on before voicing my opinion, nor did I avoid taking on responsibilities at work 10 years ago when I was single to ensure I would have time later in life to look after hypothetical children (really!?!?!). I also do not recognise this sort of behaviour in any of my female colleagues. Are we just abnormal, and women in other industries are indeed terrified of speaking up or taking responsibility?
I think the book would be helpful to managers of very junior staff as it could help superiors to spot "evasive" behaviour in their more junior colleagues, but I really don't know if there is a gender bias to being timid.
