Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read for young women This is a very inspiring read for young women who are just starting their career. Sheryl really gave powerful stories and stats to encourage young women to start making their voices heard.I would also recommend "Unfinished Business" by Anne-Marie Slaughter. They complement each other in many aspects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to give this to every graduate I know! This is definitely one of my top recommendations for anyone shopping for graduation gifts. I wish I had read this before I graduated! This book pushed me to reevaluate how I have been approaching my career and my everyday interactions. In particular, the chapters on 'The Leadership Ambition Gap' and 'It's a Jungle Gym, Not a Ladder' really got me thinking. I appreciated how Sheryl Sandberg's personal anecdotes were thoughtfully linked to current research and to the stories of people living in different circumstances. And the added stories/chapters (I'm assuming these weren't in the original Lean In) written by other leaders provided a fascinating range of perspectives on what "leaning in" can mean for different people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE book to read if you are a young women starting your career! Looking for a good non-fiction read that is thought provoking and helps put your career in focus at the same time? This is the book to read. Sandberg's writing is clear and evidenced-based; showing that women need to not only take control as they navigate their careers but also be cognoscente of the barriers that they face based solely on gender. I've been reading this book on the subway to and from work every day and it has definitely changed the way I start my day at the office.
