That is an unfortunate situation all around. My face while reading this: My jaw is currently under the table.
There are some large complaints about this book. That it should be men who change their behavior at work. That this book undermines the need to make structural changes in work to diminish barriers to women.
That women are to blame for the inequality at work. This is a book about how women can change their individual behavior to help them succeed in business as it currently exists.
And, to be fair, Sandberg does talk about the need for structural and cultural change as well as that men should change their behavior.
The author talks about how getting women into positions of leadership will help to change structure and culture, which is probably true. She casually notes that she has a nanny.
She talks about how, when she was a new mother, she and her husband had two year period where he worked in LA and she in the bay.
Uprooting or firing how many people in this process! She shares an anecdote about taking her children with her on the eBay private jet. Wealth makes a huge difference in constructing a life that balances the desires for a career and a family. She does not appreciate this. Couple of other thoughts: The book gets more annoying as you read it.
It you want the best that it has to offer read the first three chapters, then give up. Sandberg shares an anecdote about a friend who devised a test to see whether a guy was worthy to date. If he is not bothered, then proceed to date. Both of these are designed to test how accommodating the man is to her career.
Yes, this is a good way to start a relationship, by testing the person and lying. Also, a date in Sao Paulo!
Towards the end of the book Sandberg is trying to say that the choice to stay at home with children is as valid as staying in work.8. bell hooks Almost every other graduate student I met at the University of Texas at Austin was obsessed with discovering Foucault.
