    1 thought on “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

    1. I highly recommend this book. As a single mom near the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder, the negative reviews would have led me to believe 'Lean In' wasn't for me and that only an elite few could relate. To the contrary, I found that Sandberg lends a clear, relevant, necessary voice to issues of leadership and equality for women and men and understanding for parents working in and out of the home.It's a quick yet engaging read. She's the first author I've read who shared what may be our genera [...]

    2. Read this book if you want to get inside the head of a power elite. Read this book if you want to hear about all of the things that women do wrong, to make sure you don't make the same mistakes. And then, read this book if you want to read all about why Marissa Mayer should be supported and treated as our hero, as opposed to our oppressor.I really wanted to like this book. As a working Mom who has leaned into opportunities, even with a child, I felt the message would resonate with me. And at som [...]

    3. Lean In Oh Lean In the book of the moment. There are some large complaints about this book. That it should be men who change their behavior at work. That this book undermines the need to make structural changes in work to diminish barriers to women. That women are to blame for the inequality at work. All of these are important, but they aren't what the book is about. This is a book about how women can change their individual behavior to help them succeed in business as it currently exists. Maybe [...]

    4. Little story: In my previous department we all got nicknames, all of them meant to be very descriptive of the person but also really positive. They were brainstormed and then voted on, which actually was a really fun team-building. But while most people did indeed get some amazing nicknames, my final one was… ‘Ms Bossy’.After hearing that, I remember heading to the toilets for a good cry, which is something I hardly ever do (when there are no books/movies or music involved that is). Of eve [...]

    5. I feel sad that so many people criticize Sheryl's book WITHOUT reading it. When I told my husband that I was reading "Lean In", he said, "Oh, but people say it's for only rich elite women who can afford full time nannies." That is a result of malicious rumors.I'm not a businesswoman and my background is very different from Sheryl's, but I agree with almost everything she says in this book. I have struggled with the same things for the last 50 years. I'm not competitive and I never wanted to beco [...]

    6. This is a great start on this particular conversation, but Sandberg leaves out two large groups of women; women of color and women who are not wealthy. While many women want to sit at the table and lean as far in as the rest of those at the table many women are not invited and/or do not have the means to take the risk. When you are worried about how you are going to pay for today, it is difficult to take the plunge especially if you have others who are dependent on you. I applaud Sandberg for wr [...]

    7. 2.5 stars to be more precise. Sandberg is far more likeable than I expected and I appreciated her self-deprecating sense of humour, honesty about her insecurities and enthusiasm for supporting other women. I nodded along quite a bit when she talked about crying at work (been there, done that) and was happy to see her dismantle the guilt-trip fallacy that is "women having it all". Sadly, Lean In is corporate feminism with an extremely narrow focus that excludes most women. Corporate feminism is t [...]

    8. Although this book is certain to help many women, I gave it 4 stars because some of the advice has already been shared in similar books (perhaps without as much research and statistics to back things up) but stillSomeone asked me for a cliffs notes version and the best I can say is to search online for Sheryl Sandberg's TEDWomen talk in 2010. It is a 15 minute long speech that basically sums up her most pertinent points in this book.This isn't necessarily a book on how to climb the career ladder [...]

    9. While this book by the COO of Facebook is ostensibly about women in the workplace, it's really about subconscious cognitive biases. A majority of Americans may consider women and men to be equal on the surface, but the fact that women still lag significantly behind men in both pay and leadership positions points to the fact that there is something else going on.In this book, Sandberg does an excellent job at shining light on exactly what is standing in the way of full equality. She offers many e [...]

    10. This book is terrible on all levels. It is written at a level beneath anyone who might hope to achieve the type of success she discusses. And the message is wrong. I consider myself a woman who is successful in the workplace, but not because I act aggressive like a man-- rather, because I recognize my strengths and weaknesses and behave accordingly. That should be a human way to succeed--not man vs. woman. I don't want advice from a woman who is so oblivious of her actions that she supposedly ne [...]

    11. I went into the office today to find that one of my female managers sent this book to me as a surprise gift along with a thank you note for being a role model and mentor to her in her career over the years. She has two young girls like I do, and in my career field that is still rare. She and I have shared the trials and tribulations of having a career and simultaneously loving and hating it, traveling, being married, being soft but hard as nails when needed, and love, love, loving being a mommy [...]

    12. Interesting that I chose to read this book right around the time when I decided to lean OUT big time. Prior to March 2013, I had a great job doing interesting work for (mostly) wonderful people, but that job happened to exist in NYC - aka the most expensive city in the country - and for all the job's plusses, "financially rewarding" it was not.Post March 2013, everything changed. I had my first baby - a sweet, adorable bundle of baby boy joy - and upon crunching the numbers, I realized that post [...]

    13. Putting aside critiques of her belief in corporate feminism, Sandberg's book reeks of unspoken privilege. Her message for women to transcend difference in the workplace through top leadership positions leaves behind many women who do not have the social agency, time, education, or good health to follow her example. The whole time I was reading this book, all I could think of was, "Who is her nanny? Does she have the agency to do the things Sandberg talks about? Can her nanny afford a nanny to ta [...]

    14. Question: When is a book not a book? Answer: When it has 37 footnotes by the 24th page.Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg is nothing more than a thesis paper thinly disguised and marketed by the publishing company as the next "it" book for women. Wellt all women; at least in my mind.Why, you ask? The reality is that most women are never going to get the opportunity to work in a Fortune 500 company as an executive. Now that's not to say that women won't have opportunitie [...]

    15. With all the conversation surrounding Sandberg's work, as a modern feminist and working mom, I really wanted to dislike this book. But as it turns out, I loved it and am closing the cover feeling invigorated to continue along my career path. Those who have cursory knowledge of Lean In (because of Sandberg's recent media coverage) will miss the larger point of this important work. Some have criticized Sandberg as a victim-blamer- associating her book with the idea that if women somehow tried hard [...]

    16. This book has received so much hype and media coverage that by the time I sat down to read it, I already knew most of the contents. Sheryl Sandberg, as you probably know, is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is frequently ranked on Most-Powerful-Women lists. This is her so-called feminist manifesto about inspiring women to grab at opportunities in their careers, instead of being filled with self-doubt or assuming that having children would hold them back. She cites a number of differen [...]

    17. If you are the daughter of two professional parents, have two siblings who are doctors, attended an Ivy League university and a prestigious business school where one of your professors was a future director of the World Bank and a Cabinet member, and you aspire to lead several world-class organizations, then this is the book for you. You'll learn that you should speak up at meetings, get your partner (who of course is male because lesbians don't become the CEOs of anything) to ideally stay home [...]

    18. One of the most effective things about Sheryl Sandberg's new book is that she followed the principles of KISS--keep it short and simple. In less than 175 pages, Sandberg puts forth a manifesto for a new generation of feminists--a generation that may not even be comfortable calling themselves feminists. Women are smart and capable, and while we face very real obstacles (pay inequality, gender discrimination), it is the our internal obstacles that may be what is truly holding us back. Sandberg pro [...]

    19. 3.5 StarsAt times this books was encouraging and dazzling and made me shake my fist in camaraderie. At other times, I found myself rolling my eyes at Sheryl's life and trying to imagine her ever living an ordinary life, working her way up the corporate ladder with no white privilege. Alas, I must do what Sheryl tells me to and support her as a woman. We have enough people trying to hold us back and crush us down, women must support other women in every aspect of their lives. A book filled with s [...]

    20. How do you say anything about the most reviewed book of 2013? Sheryl Sandberg’s call for women to lean in and take control of their careers has been roundly and lengthily discussed on newspaper sites and blogs, often at a level I find to be unhelpfully and personally focused: who does she think she is, a multi-millionaire with options in Facebook and painfree childcare, telling us how to live our lives?Only, she’s not. Sandberg comes across as warm and driven, brave and vulnerable, self-awar [...]

    21. The only reason this gets more than 1 star is because hey, at least SOMEONE is pointing out there's rampant sexism in the world.Who is the target audience here? Other white women who went to Harvard, worked at Google, and had a lot of resources to help raise two kids? Or is it men who like to pat themselves on the back for being "feminists", and women who don't want to stir up the hornet's nest too much? Listen Sheryl, I'm not trying to "lean in" to some complacent job where the men won't feel t [...]

    22. I give a lot of kudos to Sheryl Sandberg for bringing up a lot of topics that I think are important, under-discussed, under-recognized, and in some cases, did not really have a voice (at least not all in one work). This isn't necessarily a "how-to" book (like 'how to become an amazing woman leader') but more of a book on how to recognize certain traits, characteristics, and behaviors that both men and women possess, and the impact it has on women in the workplace. I applaud Sandberg for stepping [...]

    23. This is a very inspiring book for women from all walks of life. I think the first impression that I had was that all women need to Lean In to job opportunities. However, Sheryl emphasizes that every woman has different aspirations. If staying at home with your children is fulfilling, then you should Lean In to the opportunity; likewise if you want to pursue a career. However, the true point is that as women, we should work together and lift each other up. The negative views of women who work and [...]

    24. When I first started seeing ads promoting this book it was really the subtitle "Women, Work and the Will to Lead" that grabbed me. I looked around the Internet and found Sandberg's TEDTalk which raised some interesting issues but it didn't leave me bowled over like a lot of other people. Having seen some phenomenal TEDTalks in the past I figured hers would be on par. Well the ideas were but the delivery didn't make me go "wow" --but it did make me get the book and good thing I did because it def [...]

    25. There are a lot of catch-22s in the working world. There are even more for women. If you don't ask for a raise, you're less likely to get one. If you ask for a raise, and you're female, it has a real impact on how people perceive you. Be ambitious, but not too ambitious. Be nice, but not too nice. Work your ass off to get ahead, but still find the time to parent. Sheryl Sandberg has done a very good job of bringing together tons of evidence about how women experience the professional world, and [...]

    26. I have to admit that I picked this up mostly because I felt I was obligated as a feminist, and especially as a woman working in tech. I wasn't entirely convinced that the en vogue movement of the moment with the semi-cutesy name was going to be terribly applicable to me. I could not have been more wrong.By the day after I started reading this, I already felt more self-aware both at work and outside of the office. I was actively recognizing many of the habits and pitfalls Sandberg describes and w [...]

    27. I have written this book to encourage women to dream big, forge a path through the obstacles, and achieve their full potential. I am hoping that each woman will set her own goals and reach for them with gusto. And I am hoping that each man will do his part to support women in the workplace and in the home, also with gusto. As we start using the talents of the entire population, our institutions will be more productive, our homes will be happier, and the children growing up in those homes will no [...]

    28. When I saw the author interviewed on 60 Minutes, I felt little connection, to her or her topic, or desire to read her book. Days later, when I was waiting in line at the Cafe in Barnes and Noble, there were several on display nearby; out of curiosity of what I must have missed in the interview, I picked one up . (High five to BN for good product placement.) After just a few moments of reading random passages, I knew I wanted to own this book. Not only did I want to read it but I wanted my daught [...]

    30. Lean In is being bizarrely mischaracterized. It has issues but it isn't a harmful book to women from any walk of life, not by any stretch of the imagination. The biggest issue with this book is that there's nothing new here, but the retread is blandly interesting. Full review forthcoming,
