Product description

Review

"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)

Book Description

A provocative and inspiring work on overcoming the obstacles facing women on the path to leadership

Well written book with lots of anecdotes and infuriating stats on gender pay gaps, the cost per child in terms of lost salary, etc. It does also make you realise how backward the US is in terms of gender equality/perception. Makes me realise Hillary Clinton never had a real chance!

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.

I was really looking forward to reading this but found myself skipping over pages after a couple of chapters. I gave up and just watched her TED talks instead, which pretty much sum up the book.

Every human who can read should take the time to read the words of Sheryl Sandberg. She writes with passion but with admirable skill. I look forward to discussing this book with my daughter; she's almost finished too.

A great read. Simple, quick read, easy to follow and entertaining whilst raising and reminding us of some great points. A book I was completely able to relate to. If we take away just one idea and action from reading this book then we can all make a difference!

An amazing book which every woman and man should read. Sheryl really captured the issues women face perfectly in the work environment and ways to overcome them.
