“Thanks to Sandberg, the world just might be a different place.

“If Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg succeeds, it will be because she’s made us mad—and more than willing to act. With no small amount of self-deprecating humor, a massive quantity of facts and research, plus a liberal dose of very personal anecdotes, Sandberg forces each one of us—woman and man—to reexamine ourselves at work and in life, using a unique filter.
“Are we more concerned about being liked than succeeding? Do we think of our career as a series of upward ladders rather than a jungle gym? Do our authentic selves—and honesty—show up in business? In short, every single ‘undoing’ of a woman’s career is examined thoughtfully and with twenty-first-century gentleness and exposed with recommended remedies. Her cadre of colleagues acts as advocates for her theme: lean in, or take a risk and drive change for us Jacket photoall. And though there are no solutions offered, except in the formation of communities around the country and (we hope!) around the earth, there’s tremendous reenergy in feeling that, thanks to Sandberg, the world just might be a different place.” —Barbara Jacobs,
