There are a lot of platitudes in this book. It reads often like one long TED lecture. I hate TED lectures because they see the world in simple terms through the one variable that the speaker is focused on and pretends is all important. The world is not one dimensional. The world never worlds in a vacuum and there are often moving parts that int ...more
What I found completely fascinating about the book is how Sheryl takes every type of behavior, breaks it down and shows the ultimate consequence. For instance, don't quit your job until you are actually ready to leave. If you ...more
The first 200+ pages didn't fully sit well with me until I read Mellody's chapter. I couldn't understand why I constantly kept thinking throughout the reading of this book, 'why are we discussing this or wh ...more

Maybe I feel this way because, although I read this as a recent graduate, I'm not a recent high school or undergraduate graduate. I just graduated from graduate school, after many years of having worked after undergrad. Although, I don't think that has really caused me to have a bias.

Sheryl Sandberg talks about successful women's career, life struggles, gender stratification, "coming back after maternity leave", marriage and family struggles, hate and jealousy in a hilarious writing! She is funny and can be related without any shame.

I would recommend the Graduate Edition to anyone in their 20s. The original book is supplemented with a letter from Sheryl and a collection of essays from various authors. I thought the essays at the end were at least as valuable as th ...more
The book has many inspiring real life short stories from women around the world, excellent advice for new graduates. Must read for everyone.
The title of the book is a misnomer. One is better off reading books like Leadership BS, The Long View, & books by HBR, Peter Drucker etc.
The shortest version: if feminism is about equality between sexes, Sandberg is strongly against. Page after page she fights for giving enough entitlements to make the gap wider.
The book can be a source of misery. A woman acknowledges the whole society demands her an aberrant goal: to renounce to self and it's not just her traditional family. He has the living proof and example of her m ...more
