Whether you are already a working woman/man or aspiring to become one, this book is a must read. It’s one of those books that you take your time to read because you want to absorb every word. I guess it can be classified as a memoir. It’s a very brave book that will make you want to become more and do more.

Sheryl Sandberg is currently the chief operating officer at Facebook. In this book she talks about her experience as a student, working human, woman and mother. She’s worked at Google, US Treasury Department, McKinsey & Company and many other organizations. (Oh boy! For now I can only dream)
