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.
Sheryl Sandberg is chief operating officer at Facebook. Prior to Facebook, she was vice president of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google and chief of staff at the U.S. Treasury Department. Sheryl lives in Northern California with her husband and their two children.
@ Paratus "We need to be grateful for what we have but dissatisfied with the status quo. This disatisfaction spurs the charge for change. We must keep going"-though it's quite annoying and makes people easily c… @ 孤独的质数 Every woman should fight for what she dreams about, and man who loves her should be a real partner that would help. @ 马什么梅？ 乍看是女权主义宣言，实只是女性职场手册。讨论两性平等问题，以"外部因素已是老生长谈"为由而只谈"如何从我做起"是远远不够的。Sandberg的眼界局限在她的圈子，只看到women in the workplace，却没有看到women who struggle to make ends meet，对后者而言，选择不是问题，问题是没有选择，虽然作者态度诚恳，但这种"你不出色是因为你还不够努力"的理论… @ 滕子京 有空了写详细书评，强烈推荐所有想在各自领域里冲击顶级职位的女性一读 @ 疾走 It's a good book, but not for me.
