52 Books in a Year: Week 2

Lean-InDuring week two of my yearlong reading project I shifted gears from fiction to non-fcition.  Lean In has already been mentioned once on the thinkspace blog, but it is worth mentioning again.  Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, wrote in a way that challenged my perspective, as she changed the conversation “from what women can’t do to what we can do.”  Mark Zuckerberg says of the book and Sheryl: “The book is smart and honest and funny.  Her words will help all readers – especially men – to become better and more effective leaders.” 
Want to lean in with me?  Let’s form a lean in circle.  Leave a comment if you’re interested, and I’ll follow up with you.

What else have I read in my yearlong reading project?

    Annie you are inspirational! Just the fact that you are creating a goal for yourself to read one book a week for a year… is impressive! You really do have an appetite for learning. Thanks for sharing! I’ve heard quite a bit about Sheryl lately but it really is worth mentioning again!
    I’ll be following your blogs looking for another great book to read :]

    I look forward to hearing more of your comments on this book. Yesterday during the roundtable discussion with Congresswoman Suzan DelBene the topic of women in engineering came up. Also how to get more children, girls especially, interested in math and science. The glass ceiling and pink-collared jobs seem like they should be antiquated terms in 2013. So cheers to the women that make a difference, and educate everyone to the possibilities/realities. Thank you Annie for sharing this with us.

      I’d love to hear more about your thoughts on this topic, Jamie…and pick your brain on the event yesterday. I also think you’d love this book – it’s a fast read, and really well researched.
