From the Publisher
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
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 two million 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.

Fifty years after The Feminine Mystique . . . Sandberg addresses 21st-century issues that never entered Betty Friedan’s wildest dreams . . . Lean In will be an influential book. It will open the eyes of women who grew up thinking that feminism was ancient history, who recoil at the word but walk heedlessly through the doors it opened. And it will encourage those women to persevere in their professional lives.” —Janet Maslin, The New York Times “ Lean In poses a set of ambitious challenges to women: to create the lives we want, to be leaders in our work, to be partners in our homes, and to be champions of other women. Sheryl provides pragmatic advice on how women in the twenty-first century can meet these challenges. I hope women—and men—of my generation will rea
