Lean In Book Review

This is going to be a short one because I’m out of practice with writing and I just don’t have much to say about Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In.

It’s a fine book, but it’s a bit difficult to translate into my particular life. I’m nowhere near in the same kind of position as Sandberg and whenever I was starting to get a grasp on how her advice might apply, she’d wheel right back into a personal anecdote that I found wildly unfamiliar.

I did really like her advice to sit at the table. Being present and claiming your authority can be critical for women in leadership.

The most important part of this book may be that it included men in the conversation and pulled a bit of the spotlight to the issues women face in leadership roles.

Aaand that’s all I really have to say. I wish I hadn’t bought this one in hardcover and I’m looking forward to the next book for my 2018 TBR Pile Challenge–Fourth of July Creek by Smith Henderson. It’s the July book for a local book club that I’ve been wanting to check out too!
