Lean InLean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg

Total Reading Time: 3.25 hours

Review: Ms. Sandberg makes some important points, not only about the still institutionalized external barriers and stereotypes that keep women from working at the same levels as men, but also the equally important internal barriers and biases that keep women from taking opportunities and reaching for the top. It was an eye-opening experience to read this thoughtful and well-researched work. It’s hard for me to be courageous but this book gave me a little more hope that it’s possible and that we can continue to break down traditional gender stereotypes for the benefit of all. I recommend it for both men and women.
