Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become
one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she
urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with
it at the highest levels throughout their lives.
Lean In - Sheryl Sandberg's provocative, inspiring book about women and power - grew out of an electrifying TED talk
Sandberg gave in 2010, in which she expressed her concern that progress for women in achieving major leadership
positions had stalled. The talk became a phenomenon and has since been viewed nearly 2,000,000 times. In Lean In, she
fuses humorous personal anecdotes, singular lessons on confidence and leadership, and practical advice for women based
on research, data, her own experiences, and the experiences of other women of all ages. Sandberg has an uncanny gift for
cutting through layers of ambiguity that surround working women, and in Lean In she grapples, piercingly, with the great
questions of modern life. Her message to women is overwhelmingly positive. She is a trailblazing model for the ideas she
so passionately espouses, and she's on the pulse of a topic that has never been more relevant.
