Sheryl Sandberg is a notable woman in today’s business world, recognized by such publications as Forbes and Time for her influential voice. The current chief operating officer at Facebook and a former vice president at Google, Sandberg wrote 2013’s critically acclaimed Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. A compilation of personal anecdotes paired with scientific data, Sandberg identifies the struggles that women face in today’s business world. Though the number of women in the workforce has grown significantly over the years, Sandberg believes that their presence is not equal to their male counterparts. The goal of the book is to educate any woman who wants to increase her chances of making it to the top as well as enlighten interested men on the struggles that women face in business.
