    DescriptionThirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women's voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In `Lean In, ` Sheryl Sandberg examines why women's progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential. Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on `Fortune`'s list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of `Time`'s 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which became a phenomenon and has been viewed more than two million times, encouraged women to `sit at the table,` seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto. In `Lean In, ` Sandberg digs deeper into these issues, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to cut through the layers of ambiguity and bias surrounding the lives and choices of working women. She recounts her own decisions, mistakes, and daily struggles to make the right choices for herself, her career, and her family. She provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career, urging women to set boundaries and to abandon the myth of `having it all.` She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women in the workplace and at home. Written with both humor and wisdom,` ` Sandberg's book is an inspiring call to action and a blueprint for individual growth. `Lean In` is destined to change the conversation from what women can't do to what they can.

    Review quote
    Advance Praise for `Lean In` `Sheryl provides practical suggestions for managing and overcoming the challenges that arise on the 'jungle gym' of career advancement. I nodded my head in agreement and laughed out loud as I read these pages. `Lean``In `is a superb, witty, candid, and meaningful read for women (and men) of all generations.` --Condoleezza Rice, former U.S. secretary of state `Sheryl Sandberg has done a tremendous service with this work. It offers a vital and sharp message, for women and men. We need great leaders in key seats spread throughout all sectors of society, and we simply cannot afford to lose 50 percent of the smartest, most capable people from competing for those seats. Provocative, practical, and inspired!` --Jim Collins, author of `Good to Great` `To tackle society's most pressing problems we need to unleash the leadership of both women and men. `Lean In `shows us the path and is an absolutely invaluable resource for the next generation of leaders and those who support them.` --Wendy Kopp, founder and CEO, Teach for America `For the past five years, I've sat at a desk next to Sheryl and I've learned something from her almost every day. She has a remarkable intelligence that can cut through complex processes and find solutions to the hardest problems. `Lean In `combines Sheryl's ability to synthesize information with her understanding of how to get the best out of people. The book is smart and honest and funny. Her words will help all readers--especially men--to become better and more effective leaders.` --Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO, Facebook `Sheryl is a unique business leader because of her versatility and breadth. She has the two traits that are common in every successful leader I have known: curiosity and determination. Sheryl brings all of her insight to `Lean In,` an important new book that companies can use to get the most out of their talent. With her ideas and actions, Sher
