    Flipkart Official Review

    “Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead” by Sheryl Sandberg is a book which essentially tells women how to reach the top and face all kinds of obstacles at work. The book is a handy ocument for women who aspire to reach the top at the workplace, however do not know how to. At some point, the book can get a little feministic in its approach, however the overall appeal of the book remains, which means it can be read across genders.

    “Lean In” is a powerful piece of writing for our times. Sheryl in the second half, also talks of her life and trials, only to be able to connect with readers. It speaks of what women go through – from work-life balance to getting assistance from their family to how to deal with corporate situations. “Lean In” for sure is an engaging read for the woman who wants it all and does not want to compromise.

     

    Published in the year 2013, Lean In: Women, Work And The Will To Lead is a book that explains the reasons behind women being unable to acquire leadership positions, and offers a solution for women to reach their full potential.

     

    Summary Of The Book

    Lean In: Women, Work And The Will To Lead is a book that was written as a result of a TED conference in 2010, which revolved around the discussion that there are very few women in leadership positions. Even though it has been thirty years since women made up half the number of college graduates in the US, males still hold the majority of leadership positions. This translates that women aren’t being heard in major decisions that affect the lives of individuals in these modern times.

    Sandberg tells women that they would never receive the same recognition as men, unless they are willing to make certain changes in order to prevent stagnation. She further throws light on the current state of women in the corporate arena of America, explaining that there are only 21 women CEOs in Fortune 500 companies in the US, and 22 out of 197 women hold the position of heads-of-state. Globally, women hold only 20 percent of parliamentary positions. She tells women to sit at the table, have faith in themselves, and shoot for the top. Sandberg also explains that the rate of divorce would decrease greatly if women pulled in half the household income. Apart from income, she also states that men and women should share equal responsibilities at household work. This book has almost 30 pages of footnotes as a result of Sandberg’s proof for her claims.

    Sandberg also opens up to the readers by penning down her insecurities in college, and the time she cried in the presence of her boss. She also recounts the time when she had to negotiate her pay with Facebook. Lean In: Women, Work And The Will To Lead is a must-have for women who desire to overcome their pre-conceived ideas and anxieties to achieve the success they always wanted.

    This book was gifted to me by my father, and every word I read from Page 1 had me glued to this book. It is one of the best Non fiction books I hav ever read.

    Sheryl attends to so many issues women face, that no one really talks about and even women choose to ignore it. Its one of those books which has u silently laughing, because u realise "Damn, even I hav done that, when I shouldn't have". It is a real eye opener and I suggest this book to each and every working and non working women...

    Inspiring for any person regardless of gender!

    One of the best aspects of this book is that it doesn't stoop to ordering, judging, or lecturing at any level. It does not criminalize motherhood or career women, instead it says, balance is possible, all you need to do is be disciplined about it.


    I have been a Sandberger (Sandberg fan lol) for a long time now, and was awaiting the release of her book for months. It did not disappoint me as it has a certain continuity to it, i.e. you can follow up on the Lean In movement by joining real li...
