I found this to be a useful and interesting book. Sandberg makes some important points about people’s behavior with regards to work and gives many useful tips. I did not feel that she was “blaming the victim” as some accuse her of doing: she admits right up front that she is well aware that there are larger societal issues at work, but that doesn’t mean that women shouldn’t step up and take charge of their lives where they can. She also focuses more on some of those larger societal issues in the last couple chapters. She cites numerous psychology, sociology, and neurobiology studies to support her points about behaviors. It is true that her book is certainly corporate focused, and not that applicable to a large swath of the population who do not have the luxuries or choices that she is writing about. However, she does also admit this up front – that her book is not for everyone. I think there are many aspects of it that can be useful to anyone who sometimes lacks confidence or feels intimidated by the men in the workforce around them.
