I got Lean In as a Christmas present from my dad. As a woman about to enter the corporate world, he found this book to be interesting and relevant to what I might experience. While many have mix reviews on the writer Sheryl Sandberg (many think she didn't have the struggle because she was able to afford child care), her statistics and personal stories from her and her co-workers are pretty astounding. She presents women workplace issues in a very real and honest way. Her advice to never think less of yourself, go after what you want, find a good partner and work hard are things every woman entering the work force should be reminded of. I am inspired by her perseverance and ability to take action when needed and hope I can emulate some of her strides in my own work-life balance.
