Customer Reviews

Loved this book!I loved this book. I didn't read it when it came out partly becaused I listened to reviews who claimed Sheryl's persepective was irrelevant because of her elite statue as a Silicon Valley exec. Boy, was I wrong to listen to the negative press. Should Sheryl not have a voice because she has been successful? I think not. She had quite a bit to say that I felt was relevant to my middle class lifestyle and the issues I face as a career mom. She acknowledges herself, that she can afford to have help but that didn't make her insights any less perceptive. One of the first steps we can take as we "Lean In" is to be supportive of women who speak out. Having read the book, I highly recommend it and now her critics seem mean spirited and small minded.5Lean InOne of the best books I have ever read. I am not a self-help book reading kind of person, but was struggling through some issues on the job. The book was recommended to me by a few people so I purchased it. It's a very easy read and the style conversational and chatty.Although the book is written from the perspective of a white female, throw any "ism" in and you would probably be able to identify. Worth reading because it gives women plenty of insight into how we sometimes perceive ourselves and our roles on the job.I could certainly identify with some of the behaviors she points out!5Awesome Book about genderstereoytping and the glass ceiling!I saw Sheryl at the SHRM National Conference in Chicago this past summer. What an amazing story, and a great presentation. The book nails the struggles that many confident women experience in the workplace which is gender stereotyping. Stern Facial expressions that men exhibit suggest confidence, however, those same facial expressions suggest a woman is bossy and controlling. The chapter in the book about leaning in and being real was very empowering. Whether you are a man or a woman, its about leading others to get towards having confidence in their abilities, and not succumbing to gender stereotyping. Being real and speaking up to lead others speaks so loudly in this book. It makes you realize that success does not come to those who wait, but to those who aren't afraid to speak up, and be real. It's just a great book, and worth every penny of it. I bought a few as gifts. Lean in and help others spread the word. Surround yourself with confident people and their confidence will soon empower you to lean in because we are all in it together.5Loved it!As an educated female (college professor) who has worked hard to overcome societal obstacles for minority women, I felt that there were many times that this book was speaking directly to me and the experiences I have had. At times, I could not put this book down. I choose this book for a book club I ran with our female grad students and the reviews were mostly positive. The only thing I will note is that this book is probably not for those who are not aspiring to leadership roles or professional careers. One student commented that the book seems to suggest that not aiming high career-wise is a failure. Thus, I imagine that stay-at-home moms might potentially be offended by the way success is defined in this book. However, I do not think this is the intended audience.5My four favorite quotes from Lean In I read most of Lean In when it originally came out, and decided to revisit it while on sabbatical this month. My favorite thing about it is Sheryl s sheer honesty throughout. Here are four quotes from the book that gave me particular inspiration:1) Writing this book is what I would do if I weren t afraid. > what are YOU afraid of? Maybe you should also embrace it rather than running away from it. That s how we accomplish some of our most satisfactory growth.2) I wish I were strong enough to ignore what others say, but experience tells me I often can t. Allowing myself to feel upset, even really upset, and then move on - that s something I can do. > this (and the chapter it was in) resonated deeply. I was once essentially not given a promotion because I had cried behind closed doors in an executive office, at a time when I was failing to get by on four hours of sleep per night. That executive then didn t believe I was emotionally ready to be promoted. Reading this book, I felt vindicated knowing that other successful people bring emotion to work, and it hasn t held them back.3) success is making the best choices we can... and accepting them > Fact: we can t have it all, and the sooner we get comfortable with compromises and imperfections, the more comfortable we ll be.4) We must raise both the ceiling and the floor. > I love the ideas in this book around helping ALL women find the balance and equality that they are looking for. Yes, we need more female leaders, but we need more examples at every level and in multiple professions.5Life (and career) changingThis book CHANGED MY LIFE. I had been working in the same position at the same company for the last 12 years wondering why I wasn't being promoted or approached by competitors. Along with gaining experience over the years and building my own self confidence, I needed this book to push me to take the next steps. I know this sounds silly and self absorbed, but when I was reading it, it was like Sandberg was talking directly to me. She gave me insight into some of the things that were happening around me, and some tips on what I could do to change the course of my career.Within a week of finishing it, I stood up to a male coworker who was minimizing and deflating everything I said in a meeting in front of my manager and colleagues. Pre book I probably would have just let it go and been deferential even though I knew I was right. I didn't back down on my position, but I remained calm and logical, and was still friendly. He on the other hand became angry and raised his voice. I asked him why he was becoming so emotional about he topic, and that question disarmed him completely. He said "you're right, I'm sorry." Later he came to my office and apologized again. I know he didn't like it, and I don't think his apology was sincere, but I know I at least gleaned some respect from him and my colleagues.I later noticed in another meeting in which a female coworker and I were presenting, several male audience members kept interrupting us despite the fact that we were supposed to be teaching them the material. I finally stepped in and said "gentlemen, thanks for your insights but we're going to hold questions and comments until the end." They shut up.I have finally recently been selected to attend a conference across the country with a select few other employees. I attribute this selection to my newfound confidence in my abilities and contributions to the organization, and I attribute that confidence to this book!I think every working woman should read this (especially working mothers), and possibly more importantly, every manager, male or female, should read this book.5Blames her gender for critism of her flawsI tried three times to get through chapter 2 and I just couldn t do it. For example, even if she was a man, her siblings would have told stories about her bossing them around as kids growing up. This book was not for me. I couldn t get through it.1The first two-thirds are amazing, and define a mantra for both women and men of all ages.This book starts out amazing. Telling people (not necessarily just women) how to be more visible in your career, and how to climb to the top. Somewhere around the two-thirds mark, the book gets very personal. I don't care about Sheryl Sandberg's home life, so this part of the book did very little for me. But the first part of the book is so strong, that I still rate it at 4 stars.4Nothing useful, and so very disturbing!Very disappointed in this book. Absolutely nothing useful, and so very disturbing! Very sad for Sheryl Sandberg. Sure, we all need support in our careers. Support comes from both females and males before, and once, one enters a workplace. Mentors and helpful work/personal relationships with women and men are there at all stages of one's career - as are unpleasant, unfair, even unbelievable "how can this be?" situations. "Lean In" as a life philosophy should be more about paying attention to one's family/friends, health, community and trying to be a good person, rather than playing politics in a particular company or office, and doing things to put your livelihood at risk -- unless you are privileged, obscenely rich, very high on yourself at the expense of others. This reader is a female who has worked hard and has achieved some level of executive success in my career - have also had great family and friends, personal and professional relationships. Sheryl is relatively early in her career, did not go through career growth as experienced by most women (and men), and has made life decisions that have resulted in major personal failures and tragedies. She is a corporate senior executive who makes millions and who does not have to worry about losing her job and then the roof over her head, so she's not someone to be giving advice in this area. And, by her own "advice", since she is alone again in her personal life and a single Mom, should she no longer expect success in her own career? This book is eerily fascinating as far as shedding light on the thoughts and outlooks of a spoiled, too young and inexperienced Silicon Valley executive. Female or male, seek credible advice from those closer to you and your own situation; and from tested career resources. Bought the book used for $2.50 - will donate it (although perhaps it would be better just to put it in the Recycling bin).1Not the advice women should be receivingWhat is so disappointing to me is her putting the onus on women to get ahead in corporate America. The author comes from a privileged background and had powerful men as mentors throughout her career. I don't think women should depend on finding male mentors nor should they work hard to get a seat at the table at male-dominated businesses. Sheryl should be encouraging women to start their own businesses, businesses more in step with female values, and using her clout to make this happen.2
