(July 30, 2013) This book is excellent. I have to believe the discussions it sparked when it was first published were among people who had not read it. Sheryl Sandberg hits the right note in the right tone in pointing out what we have to be conscious of as individuals in shaping our own future and how deliberate we must be in changing the culture.
She is speaking of both the work place and in the home, and it addresses both the expectations we have of women AND men. She concludes by saying that she hopes in the future it will be just as accepted for men to choose to stay home and raise children full time, if they choose to, as it is for women to choose big jobs and careers in addition to motherhood. The world would benefit a great deal if more people read this book and embraced a vision that is entirely attainable.
