Description

Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential. 

Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on Fortune’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which became a phenomenon and has been viewed more than two million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto.

In Lean In, Sandberg digs deeper into these issues, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias surrounding the lives and choices of working women. She recounts her own decisions, mistakes, and daily struggles to make the right choices for herself, her career, and her family. She provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career, urging women to set boundaries and to abandon the myth of “having it all.”  She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women in the workplace and at home. 

Written with both humor and wisdom, Sandberg’s book is an inspiring call to action and a blueprint for individual growth. Lean In is destined to change the conversation from what women can’t do to what they can.

This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.  

From Publishers Weekly

May 05, 2014 – Facebook COO Sandberg's newest release is a slightly revised and updated version of her 2013 title, Lean In, tailored for graduates. The text of the original book is intact, covering all the bases that became so famous in the media frenzy following the original publication: success and likeability, making your partner a real partner, the myth of doing it all, and most importantly, "the blunt truth is that men still run the world." Here, readers will also find a new introduction exhorting female grads to embrace leadership and change the world they've inherited, as well as a number of essays from successful women on subjects such as conquering fear, rising above one's circumstances, and crafting a great resume. Peppered within are bits of career advice, pithy aphorisms ("it's a jungle gym, not a ladder"), and examples from Sandberg's life. Her encouraging tone and catchy calls to action are as compelling as ever, and this new version features a section with first-job advice.

Customer Reviews

Do not waste your time

This is one of the most over-hyped books pushed on the public by media elites that I have ever seen. Save your money as there is nothing in here that is new, nor anything that hasn't already been said by others in years past. Total waste of time and hype.

The branding of Sheryl Sanberg

This book was carefully crafted with her PR people to polish her brand and fill her already well-stocked coffers. She most likely has her sights on politcal office - ugh! Just what we need - a phony feminist Michele Bachman wanna-be.

Lean In

I saw your interview on 60 minutes. If this "movement" is so important to you than why would you charge for your book? Can't possibly need to fill your pockets more? No thank you. I'll pass.
