Review: Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead


Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead
Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW!!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book! Since I have finished it I bought myself two copies, one audio, and one print. To nearly every woman I come in contact with I have highly recommended!!! The book was engaging and entertaining. Mrs. Sandberg addressed so many things I have personally dealt with in the workplace and life, that never gets addressed. I appreciate so much what she is doing and how she is helping career women everywhere! One thing she mentioned that really stuck out to me was that we need to be uplifting the other women around us, often times we don’t support our own and that needs to change. I love that she addressed how so many of us are afraid or make career choices based on we want to be mothers and wives, so we shoot ourselves in the foot now and down the road for something we don’t yet have and might not ever have. That was her “Lean In” theme, lean into our careers, lean into our lives, give it everything we’ve got and when other blessings come along like husbands and children things will work themselves out, but don’t self-sabotage in the meantime. If we want to be a stay-at-home mom, we can, retire at that point, or whatever we want, make the adjustments when the time comes, but don’t limit our possibilities to make a difference and truly enjoy our lives. There is so much that I could elaborate on and frankly I wish I had been able to write this review immediately upon finishing. This might seem like a hard core feminist book, it’s not, (and she addresses that too!) but it’s a realistic view of what things are like, where we came from, how things have progressed, where things are headed and how we can be and make a difference! Phenomenal book! Well written best biography I have read in a very very long time!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

(Actually Finished July 12th 2013)
