While she made some excellent points, it felt like there was a lot of name dropping. I'm not sure that many of her suggestions are that applicable to most women. It is a very good starting point for discussions of the obstacles women can face in the workforce and ways to combat them. ( )

Good: I really appreciate that Sandberg used her power and position to speak out on this issue since frankly she didn't have to and wouldn't have suffered for not doing it. Also her focus on mothers and their unique issues when it comes to work was important. Although I don't have children (and definitely never will) I work with lots of mothers and despite working in female-dominated profession it's still obvious that they aren't getting the support they need. Lastly I also believe that change has to happen on both the institutional and individual fronts so I was right behind Sandberg when it came to champion fighting for both at the same time.

Bad: For all that Sandberg spoke about institutional change she said almost nothing about intersectionality, which has be on the forefront of discussions of institutional change if feminism is going to move forward with all of its strength. Also I found that her book felt more like a disjointed but enjoyable memoir than a practical guide to women in the workforce. Although Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office by Lois Frankel made me angrier at times with its casual gender essentialism, it contained way more practical advice for a variety of behaviors and personalities instead of focusing on what felt like the very narrow viewpoint of a successful wealthy mother who doesn't want to come across as too bossy or boastful. Personally I would love to be thought of as bossy (bossy women are my thing) and I am ridiculously boastful.

Weird: This isn't specific to this book but I've never understood the love for book covers that are just the authors smiling at the audience in casual poses. It seems really dated to me and potentially creepy (depending on the author). Sandberg isn't creepy-looking so I'm not having Joel Osteen-flashbacks but there's nothing particularly compelling about just looking at a person looking at you.

End: I really wish we could give half-stars because this was definitely a 3.5 that got bumped up because I didn't want to bump her down at the very end. If you're interested in feminist issues, there are more comprehensive and inclusive books out there but Sandberg has a big voice and I'm happy she's using it. ( )

“Professional ambition is expected of men but is optional -- or worse, sometimes even a negative -- for women. ‘She is very ambitious’ is not a compliment in our culture. Aggressive and hard-charging women violate unwritten rules about acceptable social conduct. Men are continually applauded for being ambitious and powerful and successful, but women who display these same traits often pay a social penalty. Female accomplishments come at a cost” (17). ( )

Helped me organize my thoughts about some pretty big questions. I liked how the author backed up her personal ideas with research (she got a social scientist collaborator just for that), but it's still a single POV from a highly privileged woman. I believe that looking at the same ideas from other perspectives will just enrich its message. ( )

A lot has changed in her life and in the world since this book was written. Today, in light of what Facebook has become I wonder what kind of real leadership and impact she has and her alignment or not with the company's decisions. Nevertheless, the issues and insights in the book are still relevant. ( )

I wish I were strong enough to ignore what others say, but experience tells me I often can't. Allowing myself to feel upset, even really upset, and then move on - that's something I can do.
One of the things he (Mark) told me was that my desire to be liked by everyone would hold me back. He said that when you want to change things, you can't please everyone. If you do please everyone, you aren't making enough progress. Mark was right.
